Yakitori-style Chicken in a Frying Pan

Yakitori-style Chicken in a Frying Pan

It's healthy because you eat lots of vegetables and it's good as a drinking appetizer.

Ingredients: about 3 servings

Chicken thighs
2
White part of a Japanese leek
1
Lettuce
6 leaves (amount you like)
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Katakuriko
about 1 tablespoon
● Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
●Mirin
2 tablespoons
●Sake
1 tablespoon
●Sugar
2 tablespoons
●Grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon

Steps

1. Wash the lettuce, drain, and chill in the refrigerator. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces, season with salt and pepper, and lightly coat with katakuriko.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan. Spread the chicken in a pan and first cook for a minute over high heat. When the pan has warmed, turned down to medium and cook until crispy.
3. Flip over the chicken and cover to let steam until it cooks through. Remove the lid and cook until the surface crisps. When cooked, blot excess oil with a paper towel.
4. Add diagonally sliced white part of Japanese leek and mix in the ● ingredients. Once it has thickened from the katakuriko on the chicken, it's done.
5. Wrap the chicken in lettuce with a little sauce, and enjoy.
