Easy in a Frying Pan! Pan-Fried Chicken Tenderloins with Umeboshi Plums

Chopped umeboshi plum is the only seasoning ingredient in this dish.
This dish is popular among umeboshi plum lovers.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Chicken tenderloin (sinews removed)
8 (2 per person)
Umeboshi (unsweetened)
Large 6 ~ 7
Panko
as needed
Oil
as needed (a generous amount)

Steps

1. Remove the pits from the umeboshi, and cut into small pieces.
2. Make horizontal cuts to open and butterfly the chicken tenderloins
3. Stuff the umeboshi in the chicken tenderloins, and close.
4. This is how they look closed.
5. Coat both sides with panko, and flatten them by pressing down. This will help them cook through faster.
6. Add oil in a frying pan, and fry until they become golden brown. Then you're all done.
7. Since they are cooked in oil, it might be healthier to serve these with vegetables. The vegetables will add colors to your tabletop as well.
