This chicken is ridiculously tender and juicy thanks to the mayo and potato starch. You don't taste the mayo at all! All you taste is just a moist and juicy chicken.

You can use this tender chicken on salads, rice and sandwiches.

How you mix and match this recipe has endless possibilities.

This meal prep will take you only 5 minutes with items you can easily find in the pantry. Once you freeze the chicken it will last up to 1 month in the freezer. All you need to do is defrost and enjoy this whenever you need it!

<Miwa’s tips>

・You can keep the marinated chicken in the freezer for up to 1 month.

・Try not to slice the chicken too thick. You want to make sure that the chicken is cooked by checking that the internal is temperature 165°F or there is no more pink inside.

・The chicken itself is not overly seasoned. Make sure to adjust the taste with salt and pepper after you sauté them.

・Japanese seven spices go well with this chicken recipe.

<Storage time>

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days after cooking.
