Yam Potato Pickled Plum and Nori Seaweed Rolls With Chicken Tenders

Chicken tender rolls The yamaimo adds a nice crunch and pickled plums add a tart accent.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken tenderloins
2
Yamaimo (unpeeled)
as needed
Shiso leaves
2
Flavored nori seaweed
3~4 sheets
Umeboshi
1

Steps

1. Remove the sinew from the chicken tenderloins. Cut in half, and flatten by pounding with the back of a knife. Remove the seed from the umeboshi and chop finely to make a paste.
2. Cut the shiso leaves in half and lay on top of the chicken tenderloins from Step 1.
3. Place the flavored nori seaweed on top of the shiso leaves. The nori may stick out a bit, depending on the width of the chicken. In that case, cut off the pieces that stick out and use them to cover the fourth piece.
4. Cut the yam potatoes into bite sized pieces and place them on top of the nori, then add the pickled plum paste on top of that. (Wash the yamaimo well and use without peeling).
5. Wrap the rolls up tightly, starting at the end closest to you, and lay them seam side down.
6. Coat oil (not listed) in a frying pan. Line up the rolls from Step 5 seam side down in the pan. Cover and cook over low heat.
7. They're ready when both sides are brown Serve with soy sauce or ponzu sauce, if you like.
