Japanese Flags And One Pot Teriyaki Chicken

So we have arrived in Japan on our “Around The World in 12 Dishes” jorney and and what is the first thing you learn about a country- its flag! The Japanese flag is very easy to make :) And we decided to do a handprint one again (as we did for India). So my lil one painted a red circle on her palm and pressed it onto the paper flag.

The Japanese flag is a  white rectangel with a large red disk in the centre. This red circle represents the sun! The Japanese  flag is officially called Nisshōki , which means “sun mark flag”, but is more commonly known as Hinomaru, which means “circle of the sun”.

For the food we made One Pot Teriyaki Chicken which tasted wonderful!

I spent hours  searching for recipes that was pretty easy to prepare and with ingredients I could get. So this One Pot Teriyaji Chicken sounded perfect. I still couldn`t get pok choi, so I substituted it with chinese cabbage. This dish turned out to be everybody`s favourite in our family and we will be definitely making it again!
