Piglet Bento

It's Piglet in my boys' bentos today. Have you watched Piglet's Big Movie before? Search for it, it's really nice and heartwarming, the boys and I love watching it. That reminds me there's another one about Pooh's Heffalump that we love. I've to make Heffalump one of these days. :)

I've also packed chicken/seaweed/ebikko roll, breaded prawns, spinach, grapes and strawberries.

For snack, I included sandwiches, grapes and strawberries. Piglet is made using ham again.

Sharing the recipe of the seaweed ebikko chicken roll below. :)

SEAWEED EBIKKO CHICKEN ROLL

Ingredients:
1 skinless and boneless chicken breast, halved
pinch of salt and black pepper
1 slice seaweed, cut into half
4 tbsp ebikko
panko
1 egg
plain flour

Method:
  1. Pound chicken breast to 1/4 inch thickness.
  2. Season with pinch of salt and black pepper.
  3. Lay one piece of seaweed on the chicken breast.
  4. Spread evenly with ebikko
  5. Lay another piece of seaweed over the ebikko.
  6. Roll up chicken breast.
  7. Coat with flour, followed by egg, and lastly panko.
  8. Shallow or deep fry till golden brown.
  9. Slice before serving.
Tips:
  • Chicken can be replaced with pork loin.
  • Ebikko can be replaced with mentaiko or tobikko.
  • Seaweed can be replaced with shiso leaves.
  • Remember to coat the chicken well in flour, egg and panko. This will help to secure the chicken roll and prevent it from opening up when frying.
