Japanese-Style Hot Pot (Gluten-Free)


Today I introduce you to Japanese-style chicken tenderloin hot pot. It is great for dinner on cold nights,  and also great for dinner on busy nights because the recipe is very easy. You can just set the ingredients in a skillet and simmer with soup. The soup ingredients are Dashi stock, soy sauce and cooking Sake. You can use any kind of Dashi stock.

Here is my “Kelp Dashi Stock” recipe post:  Homemade Kelp Dashi stock / Salted Kelp (Vegan/Vegetarian/Gluten-Free)
Here is my “Anchovy Dashi Stock” recipe post: Homemade Anchovy Dashi Stock (Gluten-Free)

Also you can use instant Dashi stock powder to save time. Here are my recommended Dashi powders on Amazon.

Kelp Dashi Powder

The dish is very nutritious because the soup contains a lot of Umami and great vitamins and minerals from all ingredients. And it uses no oil and is gluten-free! Also, chicken tenderloin is high in protein and low in calories. In fact, some Japanese who want to lose weight eat this for dinner everyday. Once they reach their ideal weight, they will go back to their normal diet.

The recipe is very easy. You can cook using one skillet.

Set vegetables in a skillet and add Dashi stock and seasoning.
Once the vegetables get tender, add green onion and chicken tenderloin.

  3. Perfect winer bowlful– delicious and healthy. We’ve just had Chinese hot pot (our daughter in law is from Hunan and son-in-law from Hong Kong) with our kids a bunch of times– but it’s different. There is a pot of broth simmering on a burner and we add ingredients at the table.– We’ll have to try your easier (and tasty) version! thanks.
