Chicken and Ume Chazuke

June 28, 2020 / by Junko

Moepero tried her hands at making chicken and ume chazuke with bonito dashi, making the dashi as well.
She also made another dish using leftover chicken breast strips and cucumbers.
The Japanese like to finish off drinking by eating “ochazuke (rice in tea or broth)”.
What do people in your country eat to end the night after drinks?
