Considered as the "kobe beef of chicken", Jidori is a special breed of chicken that's meatier and more sinewy, making them tastier and richer in collagen. They are grown in the only privately owned free range farm in Japan, under constant care and with a closely watched diet. To product the famous broth, they undergo a delicate, 18-hour stewing process until the essence of the bones and meat are completely dissolved into the stock.
The result, A delicately milky chicken broth that makes a delicious and enjoyable dish when combined with the freshest vegetables, seafood, and chicken. To add unique dimensions to the flavor the soup, Bijin Nabe is best paired with a selection of four condiments: the light soy sauce that is Shoyu, the flavourful Leek Oil, the zesty spice of Yuzukosho, and the aromatic chili layu sauce.
