Handy as a Bento Dish Ketchup Flavored Fried Chicken Breast

Everybody loves ketchup sauce flavor! It's moist and tender even though it's a chicken breast. The strong flavor from the chicken goes well with rice packed in bento.

Ingredients: 3 ~ 4 bento servings

Chicken breast
1 (200 ~ 250 g)
◎Sake and soy sauce (for marinade)
as needed
as needed
3+ tablespoons
★Worcestershire sauce(semi-thick)
1 1/2+ tablespoons
★Pepper and butter
a small amount


1. Diagonally slice the chicken breast into bite-size strips (about the same size as chicken nuggets), and brine with sake and soy sauce (4:1 ratio).
2. Coat the meat with katakuriko. Pour a generous amount of oil in a frying pan and fry until golden brown. When you have a large amount of meat, add the meat and katakuriko into a bag and shake. It reduces the prep time!
3. Season with the ingredients. Add a small amount of butter at the end. It burns easily, so either turn off the heat or turn down the heat to low.
