Chicken Teriyaki Bento

Chicken teriyaki is one of the popular Japanese dishes!
Usually it's made with chicken thigh, but I made it with chicken breast for bento.
Marinated with grated onion, chicken breast gets soft and juicy:)

I made a chicken and a chick with rice and egg for fun, thinking about oyako don! (oyako means parents and kids )

Chicken Breast Teriyaki

1~2 Chicken breast
1/2 Small Onion
1 Garlic clove
2tbs Soy sauce
1tbs Mirin (or sugar)
1tbs Sake
1tbs Honey
pinch Salt & Pepper
Potato flour, enough to coat chicken

1. Grate onion and garlic. Mix the onion, garlic, soy sauce, mirin, sake, honey, salt and pepper in a bowl.
2. Add chicken and marinate for about 1 hour.
3. Take the chicken out and wipe with paper towel. Coat with potato flour.
4. Heat oil in  a pan and brown chicken.
5. Pour in marinade mixture. Reduce liquid and done!

I used heart shaped pick to make chicken cockscomb, but you can make it by cutting red pepper instead!
