Our host from hospitalityclub.org, Yuji, made an outstanding gourmet dinner and told us his secret chicken recipe. The berries in this dish make it a tad sweet. Here is the recipe in his words:
-Peel 2 pieces of garlic and cut finely.
-Leave the garlic for 20 minutes in the air, under room temperature.
-Fry the garlic for 7 minutes on low heat.. The garlic has to be still white.
-Cut the 4 chicken thighs, but don’t remove the skin
-Mix blueberry jam, soy sauce, and sake (6 Tablespoons each). Add 1 tablespoon of honey. Add all the cut garlic. Set aside as the sauce.
-Fry the chicken surface in a pan with oil, skin side first.
-When the surface is done, turn off flame and let set for 2 minutes, still not thoroughly cooked.
(For the “skin-hater,” remove the skin before chicken cools.)
-Add the prepared sauce and cook on low heat, put on the lid and boil until the sauce get thick.
-Pull the chicken out and wipe a bit with kitchen paper to remove the oil, and serve.
-Pour sauce onto the chicken and serve alone or with rice.
