Low-cal Teriyaki Chicken Breast

Low-cal Teriyaki Chicken Breast

Chicken breast is healthy, but has a reputation for being dry. But this way of preparing it makes it nice and plump!

Ingredients: 1 serving

Chicken breast
1/2 a chicken breast
Katakuriko
as needed
Salt and pepper
to taste
Cooking sake
as needed
Sauce
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
Mirin
1 tablespoon
Cooking sake
1 tablespoon
Soft brown sugar (or granulated sugar)
1 teaspoon
For garnish
Lettuce, etc.
as needed

Steps

1. Pierce small holes in the chicken breast with a fork, then pound with the back of a knife to soften.
2. Next, thinly slice the chicken diagonally, and put the slices into a Ziploc bag. Add enough cooking sake to immerse the chicken and let sit for about 15 minutes.
3. Next, coat the chicken all over with salt, pepper, and katakuriko.
4. Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan, then cook the meat from Step 3. Once lightly cooked, add the sauce.
5. Cook over medium heat until most of the sauce has evaporated and it's done! Arrange on top of some lettuce.
