Three Bears .... But Where Is Goldilocks?

Yes, the three bears are looking for Goldilocks! They looked right .....

They looked left ... they looked everywhere!
But there was still no sight of Goldilocks! Where did Goldilocks go?

In the bento ... Three Rice Balls, Broccoli Florets, Pan-Fried Teriyaki Chicken Thighs.

The chicken thighs pieces were marinated in some Shaoxing Wine, and left overnight in the fridge. This morning, I took out the bag of chicken pieces, discarded the liquid in the bag, and pan fried them in a pan coated with a little butter and olive oil. Make sure to cook the chicken pieces thoroughly. Once they browned, remove and leave on a kitchen towel to soak up the excess oil. Remove the excess oil in the frying pan with a kitchen towel. Pour the sweet sauce, comprising of 1 tablespoon of mirin, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Give it a quick stir, put the chicken pieces back in to the pan and coat the chicken pieces with the sauce. Left cool before packing into the lunch box.

I had 2 medium pieces of deboned and de-skined chicken thighs. Adjust the amount for the sweet sauce based on the number of chicken thighs you have.

Now that the three bears have gone to school, it's time for me to look for ... Goldilocks?
