We continue to have a need for long arm quilters, so if you haven't offered to quilt a top but would like to, we can still use quilters. Please contact the shop at 989-732-1252 if you are able to help.

Recipe of the Month
Chicken Kijiyaki - 1 serving
Kijiaki refers to a traditional way of cooking bland foods such as chicken or tofu so that they supposedly mimic the taste of blue pheasant. The cooking method is basically
the same as for teriyaki.
4 oz boneless chicken thigh with skin
1 Tbsp mirin
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
shichimi pepper to taste
Pierce the chicken all over on the skin side with a fork. This helps the meat to lay flat in the pan and cook evenly.
Place a dry nonstick frying pan over high heat and put in the chicken, skin side down. Fry until the skin is brown and crispy, pressing down on the chicken occasionally with a spatula. Turn the chicken over an cook until done - it's done when you poke the middle with the tip of a knife and the juice run clear. Remove the chicken from the pan and wipe the pan clean with a paper towel.
Put the mirin, soy sauce, and sugar in the pan over medium-high heat, and stir until the sugar is melted. When the sauce is bubbling, return the chicken to the pan, and coat it with the sauce on both sides. Remove from the pan to a plate.
This chicken tastes esp. good cut up and mixed with sauteed sweet bell peppers, sauteed onions and rice.
The chicken preparation portion of the recipe is from The Just Bento Cookbook)
