Cooking Basics

Chicken thigh meat - removing sinew

Thigh meat sinew is tough and should be removed beforehand. Make a shallow 1 to 2 cm (0.4 to 0.8 in.) wide cut at a right angle into the sinew. Remove the sinew first when preparing bite-sized pieces.

Chicken thigh meat - poking holes with a fork

Skin shrinks when cooked. Use a fork to poke holes in the skin to prevent shrinkage and to further permeate the flavors of seasonings.

Japanese long onion - finely chopped

Remove the roots of the Japanese long onion, and insert vertical cuts. Then chop up finely at right angles from end to end.
