Delicious!! Chicken Breast Char Siu

Delicious!! Chicken Breast Char Siu

Please give this delicious char siu a taste!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Chicken breast (or thigh)
2 (about 500 g)
*Soy sauce
100 ml
*Mirin
100 ml
*Sake
100 ml
*Vinegar
50 ml
*Sugar
3 tablespoons
*Grated ginger
1 piece (thumb sized)

Steps

1. Roll the chicken skin side out, and tie up with cooking twine. It's easier if you err on the safe side and prepare relatively long lengths of twine.
2. Fry the chicken in a frying pan while flipping them until browned.
3. Put all the * ingredients into the frying pan! Simmer for 30 minutes over low heat, flipping them over from time to time.
4. After they have cooled down, transfer to a Ziplock bag or plastic bag and leave it in the fridge. Add boiled eggs if you like.
5. Slice and serve on a plate, and it's done This goes really well with vegetables . You can serve over rice and garnish with scallion and nori seaweed!
6. I marinated the sliced chicken in the sauce over night to get the flavors of the seasoning to settle into the meat! Char siu are a good match with Japanese leeks as well.
