Chef Saito's Chicken Nanban

3m 18s

Our theme for this episode is marinating. After trying chicken Nanban in its home region of Miyazaki Prefecture, Chef Saito fell in love with this dish. Chicken is coated and deep-fried, then placed in sweet-and-sour Nanban sauce for the coating to soak up, and served with a rich tartar sauce, for a delicious combination of flavors and textures. For our side dish, we'll be making boiled eggplant, served with ginger and soy sauce. Chef Saito will teach techniques for how to cut eggplant and how to keep the color of its skin beautiful, for a simple side dish with an elegant feel. [From "Dining with the Chef"]
