Chicken Chop Bento

Today I made chicken chop and scrambled egg with cheese. First I floured and sauteed slices of chicken thigh. Then added some onion slices, tomato juice, tonkatsu sauce, Worcester sauce and shiokoji, and cooked it for a few minutes.



Today's quick okazu! I chopped pulp of an umeboshi into paste. Then tossed boiled-asparagus with the umeboshi paste and a bit of shoyu. Umeboshi paste can be a nice dressing for salad. By tossing with a little umeboshi paste and shoyu, boiled vegetable will turn out a good okazu that goes with rice. Broccoli or cauliflower also works. Also you can simply add umeboshi paste to French dressing. If you have some umeboshi left alone in the fridge why not try it out?



  1. I love umeboshi!  Whenever I see it, it makes me so hungry!  Your chicken sounds amazing!  I love the sauce you made!

  2. Me too! Ume always makes me drool! :D  Thanks, give it a try if you have a chance :)
