Fluffy Egg Chicken Tender Piccata

Fluffy Egg Chicken Tender Piccata

A soft piccata with plenty of eggs mixed in. A dish that's simple yet delicious and popular with kids! I've also included a tip to make the meat softer.

Ingredients: serves 4

Chicken tenders
about 6
2 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
a small amount
2 tablespoons


1. Remove any sinews from the chicken tenders, and use the back of a knife to strike it and break down the fibers. Cut each strip into thirds.
2. Add the chicken from step 1 and the sake to a bowl and use your hands to massage. Blend in the flavor and continue massaging to soften the meat.
3. Add the mixture from step 2 and the flour into a plastic bag. Coat the meat with flour. Beat the eggs in a bowl.
4. Apply a generous amount of oil to a frying pan and heat on medium-low heat. Dip each chicken piece into the egg one at a time and then add to the frying pan.
5. Once golden brown, turn them all over, and pour in the remaining egg.
6. Once the egg has stiffened, take any egg that isn't with the meat and mix in with the meat. Turn over. Once the egg has stiffened, it's OK.
7. Try serving with ketchup and tonkatsu sauce.
8. If you add a bit of salt, pepper, and sugar to the egg, the egg will also have flavor, making the whole thing more delicious.
