2. Cut off both ends of the cucumbers and chop roughly into thin long pieces.
3. After 3 minutes, when the sauce thickens from the katakuriko coated on the chicken like the photo, it's done.
4. Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a pan over medium heat, and add the chicken tenders. Spread out the pieces and fry.
5. Lightly fry both sides, add the cucumbers and stir fry for about 1 minute.
6. Turn up the heat to high, and add the ingredients listed under [A] (water or soup stock, vinegar, sugar, ketchup, tonkatsu sauce and salt). Stir fry for 3 minutes while shaking the pan, being careful not to let the sauce burn.
7. After 3 minutes, when the sauce thickens from the katakuriko coated on the chicken like the photo above, it's done.
8. Doesn't it look delicious?
