3 Chicken Dishes with Different Textures in Under 20 Minutes!


Do you have chicken in the fridge but need help deciding? Here are three cooking styles to add excitement to your daily meals!

Easy-to-memorize chicken recipes

On busy days, you want to cook something familiar. But do you get tired of the same old dishes? Here are simple chicken recipes that can be made in under  20 minutes. With these three methods—sauteing, grilling, and frying— you’ll be able to enjoy the different flavors and textures.

Method ① Frying: Marinated Fried Chicken


Fried chicken in just 20 minutes!? The secret to easy cooking is marinating in a flavorful base and keeping the batter simple with potato starch. The marinade is straightforward, too, combining Kikkoman Soy Sauce, mirin, ginger, and garlic. Marinating ensures the chicken is well-flavored, so there's no need for a complicated batter!

Method ② Sauteing: Mushroom and Chicken Saute with Butter Soy Sauce


The secret to simplicity lies in how you cut the chicken. Start by halving the chicken breasts lengthwise, then slice them diagonally (this method is called “sogigiri” in Japanese). This technique ensures even cooking and eliminates any risk of undercooked spots. You create a simple and satisfying dish by adding butter to the savory umami of mushrooms and Kikkoman Soy Sauce.

Method ③ Grilling: Grilled Chicken


This menu combines the techniques used in Marinated Fried Chicken and Chicken Saute! First, slice the chicken and marinate the pieces in sesame oil and Kikkoman Soy Sauce. After grilling one side, flip it over, sprinkle with chopped scallions and cheese, and cook the other. The recipe uses long green onions; if unavailable, use whatever you have.
