Bite-Size Miso Chicken Cutlets You Can Make in 1 Bowl

You can do everything in 1 bowl including the coating.
You don't need any sauce with this. Plus, it only leaves just a few things to wash up later so it's easy!

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Chicken breast
1 portion
※ Miso
2 tablespoons
※ Mirin and sake
1/2 tablespoon each
※ Sesame oil
to taste
※ Honey or sugar
1/2 tablespoon
White flour
2 tablespoons
Egg
1
Panko
as needed
Frying oil

Steps

1. Take the skin of the chicken breast and cut it into bite size pieces. Put the cut up chicken and the ingredients marked ※ - the miso, mirin, sake, sesame oil, honey or sugar - into a bowl and massage them into the chicken with your hands. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
2. Wipe off the miso on the surface of the chicken with kitchen paper towels. Add the flour and mix very well.
3. Add the beaten egg and mix very well again. Add the panko and mix mix mix. Use a generous amount of panko so that there are no bare spots on the chicken.
4. Put them on one layer without overlapping and leave them in the refrigerator for a while to let the coating settle onto the chicken. If you don't have the time though, you can start frying right away!
5. Deep fry at around 170-180°C until done!

Story Behind this Recipe

Fried cutlets usually use up a lot of dishes to wash up...so I tried making these in just one bowl, and it worked!
Because they are flavored, you can pack them in a bento without any sauce.
