Remove the chicken skin, and spread the meat out to an equal thickness. Rub in some salt, pepper and sake.
Spread the grated garlic and finely chopped green onion on the chicken.
Roll it up tightly from the end, and wrap it like a candy in parchment paper. Put it on a plate and microwave for about 4 minutes. Turn it over and microwave for another 2 - 3 minutes.
Leave it to cool. While you are waiting, mix the ingredients marked and 2 tablespoons of the juice that seeped out of the chicken in Step 3, and simmer gently in a saucepan to make the sauce. Cut the chicken and pour on the sauce to finish.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to make a simple, hassle-free dish (as usual).
A mayonnaise-based sauce goes well with this, but use any sauce you like. The chicken is seasoned with salt and pepper, so there is only a small amount of sauce. However, it's also fine to season the chicken lightly, and serve with plenty of sauce on the side.
