Cut the chicken into thin pieces along the grain. You can also use leftover offcuts. Put in a plastic bag and rub in the ★ ingredients.
Add flour and continue to rub in. Work the flour into the entire mixture.
Skewer 2 pieces with a toothpick.
Apply oil to a frying pan and saute the chicken skewers. Once the bottom has browned, decrease to low heat, flip over, cover with a lid, and cook for 2 minutes.
Remove the lid. If the chicken has a golden brown color, add soy sauce, lightly toss with the meat, and stop the heat. If using thigh meat and you're concerned about the excess oil, wipe before adding the soy sauce.
Transfer to a serving dish, sprinkle salt and it's complete. Serve with ichimi spice or cayenne chili peppers, aonori, roasted sesame, etc. as desired.
The salt is the key, so don't forget it at the final step.
After cooking, you can change the toothpicks for something cuter.
Story Behind this Recipe
I had leftover bits of meat in the freezer, and I was bored hot pot. So I used the meat to make this simple snack.
Be careful not to burn or over-cook. Stop the heat soon after adding the soy sauce. If you cook covered, it becomes soft and tender. When using in a bento lunch box, season well with salt and pepper.
