Blackberry Chicken Rice Burger

 

 Experiment: Blackberry Chicken Rice Burger

Introduction:
When I first had a rice burger, it was back in Japan, at Mos Burger.  I fell in love with it right away… I think it was because of novelty.  Anyway, I never thought that we could make the rice burger at home… until I saw this recipe in Yoshoku: Japanese food western style.  It has a recipe of Teriyaki Chicken Riceburger.

Today I wanted to try a chicken recipe that I saw in a Japanese magazine, Lettuce Club (レタスクラブ).  So I combined the two, and made the Blackberry Chicken Rice Burger 

Materials: (2 burgers)
Rice Patty:
2-3 bowls of rice
Sesame oil
Sesame (optional)

Blackberry Chicken:
2 chicken thighs

Sauce:
2 tbs blackberry jam (or any other fruit jam)
1 tbs sake
2 tbs soy sauce
Salt and pepper

Salad greens
Mayonnaise to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Procedure:
Rice Patties:
1) Brush oil onto tin foil that’s in a baking tray. 

2 ) Cook the rice.  When it’s done (and still hot), spread it on the tin foil.  Make sure you press the rice really hard.  Otherwise the rice patty will fall apart.
(If you wanna add sesame seeds, mix the sesame seeds with rice before you put it on the tin foil)

3) Wait for the rice to cool down.  You can put it in the fridge for a while so that the rice will be cold faster. 
 

3) Use a cookie cutter to cut out the rice patty.  Dip the cookie cutter in hot water between stamping so that the rice won’t stick to the cookie cutter.

4) Heat up a frying pan.  Pour in tiny bit of sesame oil.  Put the rice patty in and pan fry until both sides are a little golden. 

Blackberry Chicken:
1) Mix all the ingredients in the sauce together.

2) Wash the chicken thighs and then dry with paper towels. 

3) In a bowl, put the chicken thighs in and then pour 1) onto the thighs.  Marinade for at least 30 minutes.  Overnight if you can.

4) Heat a frying pan.  Put the skin side down first and cook for 5 minutes, then flipe to the other side and cook for another 5 minutes. 

Blackberry Chicken Rice Burger:
1) Put some veggies on a rice patty, then put the chicken on the veggies.  Squeeze some mayo on the chicken, then close the sandwich with another rice patty.

Results:

 

Discussions:
1) It takes about half a bowl of rice to make one rice patty.  So eating one rice burger is like eating a bowl of rice.

2) The orginal chicken recipe asks for orange marmalade… which I don’t have at home.   I used blackberry jam instead… hmmm… wonder what it’ll taste like with orange marmalade.

    I loved Mos Burger, too! The Japanese really have some good fast food chains.

    I’d add a piece of roasted nori. I love the flavour of it!
