Marinated Pan-fried Chicken

Posted June 6th, 2009 in Food No Comments »

Just marinate and cook.  Very easy to make, and this chicken can be used for lots of things like sushi, salad and sandwiches.


  • 1 fillet chicken thigh with skin
  • garlic
  • ginger
  • soy sauce
  • sake
  1. Crash garlic, and slice ginger.
  2. In a clean plastic bag, put everything together with sauce.  Close the bag tightly and rub the chicken with sauce over the bag.  Leave in the fridge overnight to marinate.
  3. Remove chicken from the bag.  Using a tip of knife make little cut on chicken.  
  4. Heat up frying pan over medium-high heat, and place chicken -skin side down- and grill until skin is colored and crispy.  Turn the chicken over, and grill over medium-low heat until meat is cooked.  Placing a lid helps chicken get cooked faster and juicier.
  5. Let it stand for 10~ minutes before slicing.
As you can see, this recipe contains soy sauce so it’ll taste like Japanese/Asian.  You can shred the meat when it’s cool and mix with carrot + cucumber jullienne, then arrange on lettuce leaf cups.  Or, slice up chicken and enjoy in Temaki Sushi.  Of course you can enjoy it with just a bowl of steamed rice and some salad 🙂
