Chicken tender rolls (shiso leaves + umeboshi). Shiso (or shiso leaves or perilla) looks like this. It's a popular Japanese herb used in many Japanese cooking recipes. It's usually garnished on top of food or mixed in the ingredients.
Remove the pits from the umeboshi, and mince with a knife. Cut the chikuwa lengthwise, and make crisscross lattice pattern of cuts inside. Place the browned side of the chikuwa up, place the shiso leaf, and put the minced umeboshi close. You can have Chicken tender rolls (shiso leaves + umeboshi) using 6 ingredients and 7 steps.

The Bento Buster makes some yummy Umeboshi Plum, Shiso, & Chicken Spring Rolls. Translated: "Steamed Ume Shiso Chicken breast roll with a Toaster." I altered it slightly by omitting green onions and I used an oven instead of a toaster oven. If you're not so sure how you feel about umeboshi, try this dish because the chicken tones down the sourness and it goes really well with rice. Shiso comes in green or purple leaves with a slightly prickly texture and pointy, jagged edges, and it has a unique and vibrant taste that I could describe as herbaceous and citrusy.
Chicken tender rolls (shiso leaves + umeboshi) step by step
- Pound chicken tender to make them thinner. (You can use cling wrap or similar product if you like.).

Like most leafy herbs, I find it is best used raw, the leaves whole or chiffonaded. The green variety produces more tender. Place a shiso leaf diagonally in the middle of the rice, with an umeboshi and stick of cucumber on You can then roll the plain side of the nori sheet around it to make a nice ice-cream cone shape. Tip: umeboshi can have a very strong acidic and salty flavour, so you might not need to use any soy. Red-purple perilla is called akajiso (red shiso).
