I met some of my cooking class guests who don’t usually eat pork but chicken. In Japan, people tend to eat more pork rather than chicken. Of course, there are so many delicious Japanese foods with using chicken. My family and I like chicken a lot! This is a recipe for chicken lovers like us! Today’s dish “Chicken Nanban” is one of the Japanese home meals. “Nanban” is a type of dish which has been influenced by Portugal or ethnic countries in our history.”Nanban” dishes are usually either fried or used onion and peppers in a sauce. I love this secret sauce! In this recipe, I cut the chicken into bite-size pieces since I have a small child. But normally, we open the chicken with using knife to be thinly. So, it’s your choice. In addition to this fried chicken, we add tartar sauce made with boiled egg, mayonnaise and onion. This tartar sauce goes well with this salty and sweet sauce. So tasty and so special! Please try it out!!
