Japanese-style Braised Chicken Thighs with Tomato (Gluten-free)


Today I introduce you to “Japanese-style braised chicken thighs with tomato”. 

In the recipe, I use cooking sake, bay leaf, sugar, salt and pepper as seasonings and it is marvelous! The reason to add cooking sake is that it makes chicken soft and juicy and it rids the meat of its smell.


In Japan, people sometimes season tomato sauce dishes with soy sauce too. This adds great Asian flavor to the dish. 

The dish is very hearty but the recipe is not complicated. You can cook with just one pan.

Cook chicken in a pan and set aside. With the pan, make tomato sauce. Put chicken back in the sauce and simmer.
