Chef Rika's Chicken Rice Burger

3m 16s

In this episode, we'll be making a lunch platter featuring a Japanese twist on the quintessential fast food, the hamburger. For the buns, we'll be using grilled onigiri, a beloved Japanese comfort food, with chicken teriyaki as the filling. Teriyaki sauce is easy to prepare, making this a great dish for Japanese cooking beginners. Instead of French fries, we'll be deep-frying thin slices of burdock root and carrot to make simple chips as a side dish, full of the great natural flavor of these vegetables. Finally, we'll be serving the meal with sake mixed with soda water, for a clean, refreshing flavor to go along with this uniquely Japanese meal! [From "Dining with the Chef"]
