With Chicken Breast Teriyaki Hamburger Steaks (Tsukune Patties)

With Chicken Breast Teriyaki Hamburger Steaks (Tsukune Patties)

It's inexpensive and healthy since it's made with chicken breasts.
Kneading in shio-koji makes this dish fluffy and juicy.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Chicken breasts
500 g
1/2 medium
★Shio-koji (salt-fermented rice malt)
1/2 tablespoon
3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
★Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
★Salt and pepper
a small amount
For teriyaki sauce:
Soy sauce
5 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
2 tablespoons


1. Mince the chicken breasts, onion, and carrot in a food processor. If you don't have a food processing machine, mince with a knife.
2. Add the ingredients from Step 1 and the ★ seasoning ingredients into a bowl, and mix well.
3. Shape into thin and slightly smaller-sized hamburger steaks than normal. Lightly grease a frying pan, and fry both sides until golden brown.
4. Cover with a lid, and steam-fry for about 5 minutes.
5. Remove the lid, swirl in the teriyaki sauce mixture, and simmer until the sauce is thickened, then done.
