Chicken Sukiyaki. If You Say So.

I don’t think this is Sukiyaki at all.

It’s really delicious. But, it’s not Sukiyaki. That is more of a hot pot.

Well, the cookbook called it Chicken Sukiyaki and I liked the ingredient list. So that is how this came about.

You’re lucky I am not posting my grandfather’s Sukiyaki.

I used to go to my grandparents’ home for lunch when I went to elementary and junior high school. My grandmother was usually in charge of the meal. But, sometimes she was out and Grandpa took to the kitchen.

Sukiyaki was his favorite. Every available can in the cupboard heated together and served up as a wildly disgusting dish. I remember the tuna fish, tomato sauce, Veg-All, chicken soup and baked beans as one particularly bad one. Whew!
