This chicken katsudon I made isn’t exactly traditional but it was really good!

Instead of frying I baked the chicken.

Chicken

1 pack of chicken tenderloins
Panko
Flour
Egg
Salt
Pepper
Powder ginger
Olive oil

Heat oven to 350F. Lightly grease pan with olive oil. Set out in separate bowls/plates beaten egg, flour, and Panko mixed with desired amount of salt, pepper, and powdered ginger. Lightly coat chicken in flour, then egg and cover with panko. Place an pan and drizzle olive oil on top of chicken. Bake till lightly brown and cooked through.

Sauce

1 2/3 cups dashi (I didn’t have dashi so I did half chicken stock and half water)
1 2/3 oz mirin
1 Tbsp sugar
4 Tbsp soy sauce

Place mirin in pan, bring to a boil, add dashi(or chicken stock/water), sugar, and soy sauce, and bring back to a boil.

Vegetables and putting it together

1 pack cut exotic mushrooms
2 or 3 green onions
1 cup soy beans (I used gmo free soy beans)
1 large carrot or 4 small sweet carrots
3 or 4 eggs
Chicken katsu cut into slices
Sauce

Wash mushrooms. Wash and cut green onion into thin slices. Wash and cut carrot into thin matchsticks. Have sauce still on pan and add mushrooms and cook half way, add carrots and continue to cook till liquid is half the starting amount. Add green onions, soy beans, and sliced chicken katsu. When chicken is reheated add pre-beaten eggs and stir till half cooked. Serve over individual bowls of rice(I used jasmine rice). Enjoy!

So the new Sailor moon will be airing on Niconico’s website this July subbed in 10 languages. Here is the first image revealed of the new Sailor Moon. Looks more like the manga, don’t you think?

本 Japanese book sale

20140304-103449.jpg

Last month my Japanese language school that I take classes at had a used book sale (though some were new from kinokuniya in NYC). All the books were a $1 and the few new ones were $2. There were also some free ones that had some extra wear. Most of the ones I got were children’s books since they are suited to my Japanese reading level. Thought I did get a fashion magazine and an exercise book that has some really good things in it. The exercise book is named Real Simple. Also I got a Hello Kitty little kids activity book that I love so much. It’s super simple but has fun games while learning a little bit of Japanese, plus it has stickers!

A real good one for practicing kanji and general reading is the となりのトトロbook. Since I’m familiar with the story it’s an easy read and great practice. Another one that is short and cute is くまのスリーピー. It’s about a bear who is sleepy and tries finding different beds of other animals but none work out except his own. It’s cute. I also picked up the manga Death Note which is good since all the kanji has furigana. I got many others but these are my favorites.
