Easy Chicken Thigh with Salty Onion Sauce

15 minute prep time!! You can make a main dish without fail. This also works great as an accompaniment to drinks!!

Ingredients: 1-2 servings

Chicken thigh
1
Sake (optional)
a small amount
Salt and pepper
a small amount
★Japanese leek (finely chopped)
1/4
★Salt and pepper
a small amount
★Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
★Sugar
1/2 teaspoon
★Black pepper (optional)
a small amount

Steps

1. Cut slits into the thick section of the chicken thigh so that it will cook through easily. Season with salt, pepper, and sake, and let sit for 5 minutes.
2. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the sauce. Combine the ★ ingredients.
3. Cook the chicken. Heat a frying pan (with no oil). Place the chicken in the pan with the skin side down and pan-fry on medium heat until browned.
4. Once the skin side has browned, flip it over. Cover with a lid and cook on low heat for 5-8 minutes. Keep an eye on it as it cooks.
5. Stick it with a skewer and if the juices run clear, it's done! Once it has been cooked through the center, flip it over once again and cook on medium heat for a crispy finish.
6. Slice into bite-sized pieces and arrange on a plate. Top with the sauce from Step 2 and it's done. Optionally garnish with chili threads or ichimi spice.
