Servings 1 person


  • 2-3 sheets nori dried seaweed
  • 1 chicken breast small
  • 1 egg
  • 2-3 cups mixed greens
  • 6-8 shiso leaves
  • ½ carrot small
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 umeboshi pickled plum
  • takuan pickled daikon radish


Nori Seaweed Prep

  • Cut full sheets of nori into quarters with a sharp knife and cutting board or kitchen scissors.
  • Seal the squares of nori in a ziplock bag with air removed or the original package, sealed to keep them crisp.

Boiled Chicken

  • Bring water to a boil in a pan.
  • Once water becomes to a boil, add the chicken.
  • Turn down the heat to a light boil. Boil chicken for 4-5 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from the pan with a fork. Let it cool on a cutting board or bowl.
  • Once the chicken has cooled, peel apart into small pieces with your fingers and set aside.


  • Melt butter in a tamagoyaki pan on low heat.
  • See my tamagoyaki post/video for more detailed instructions.

Fillings Prep

  • Cut takuan (pickled radish), cucumber, and carrots into thin julienne slices.
  • Cut umeboshi into small pieces.

Final Prep

  • Arrange all fillings, including chicken and tamagoyaki, neatly on a large platter.
  • Mixed green and sesame seeds can be put out in appropriate sized bowls.
  • When ready to eat, take out 3-4 squares per person. Keep the rest of the seaweed squares sealed up until needed.


If you don't access to takuan or umboshi, you can replace with your favorite pickled vegetable or make your wraps without. 
Shiso can be replaced by other leafy greens as well.
