and place in a shallow plate or bowl. Pour the marinade over the chicken and

let sit for around 5 mins.

with the egg, add cornflour and mix through thoroughly coating well.

and fry for 2 minutes or until nice and golden. Turn the other side and cook

the same.

7. Now reduce the heat to low, add the wine and cover immediately with a lid.

Cook for 5-6 minutes.

coat all sides turning the chicken a couple of times.

This dish is delicious with all the secret seasoning. Make sure to set the right

heat temperature to get an excellent result. Enjoy the mixture of Japanese

and western taste with beer, cider or nice wine. Written by Kumiko
