Salted Seaweed Chicken Breast Piccata

Salted Seaweed Chicken Breast Piccata

My favorite flavor of potato chips inspired me to prepare this healthy chicken breast dish.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Chicken breasts
1 (250 g)
1 tablespoon
☆Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon
All-purpose flour
1 tablespoon~
★Large egg
1/2 teaspoon
3 teaspoons
★ Umami seasoning
a small amount
★Ichimi spice
a small amount


1. Remove the excess fat from the chicken breasts. Cut into 1-cm thick pieces. Season with the ☆ ingredients and gently massage into the meat.
2. Put the flour into a plastic bag. Pat the chicken pieces dry and add to the bag. Shake it up. When the chicken is coated with the flour, remove from the bag.
3. Add the ★ ingredients to the previously used plastic bag. Rub it well until the egg is mixed into the seasoning sauce.
4. Return the meat to the bag. Leave a little air in the bag and tie up the opening. Gently tilt the bag around so that the egg has coated the chicken.
5. Heat a good amount of olive oil in the frying pan and add the contents of the bag in one go!
6. Shake the pan and use a spatula to spread out the chicken. Fry on medium heat. When the side has nicely browned, flip the chicken over and brown the other side until crispy.
7. Fry for about a total of 10 minutes. If you cook the chicken for too long, it will dry out, so be careful!
8. When the chicken has finished frying, sprinkle each piece with a pinch of salt, and then it's finished.

Story Behind this Recipe

I got tired of my standard cheese grilled chicken, so I came up with this dish when I saw some fried seaweed chikuwa and my favorite potato chips.
