Earl Grey Chicken


Have been experimenting with chicken marinades. Some of my own, some from the internet. Here’s one that I would like to try soon!


2 chicken breasts, skin removed
2 teabags,(Earl Grey or anykind will do)
150ml soy sauce
75ml cooking sake
75ml mirin
40ml salad vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame seeds 
iceberg lettuce and 1 cucumber to serve

1. Boil a pan of water with the teabags, add the whole chicken breasts and simmer until cooked through (5-10 mins).
2. Meanwhile, mix the soy sauce, sake, mirin and vinegar in a bowl. 
3. Submerge the cooked chiken in the soy sauce marinade, refrigerate and leave for a few hours.
4. Slice the chiken into 0.5cm slices and serve on a bed on chopped lettuce and cucumber. Spoon a little of the marinade over and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
