Delicious and simple! Chicken and shiitake, fragrantly grilled

Chicken becomes very tasty when grilled with dried shiitake mushrooms. It is delicious hot or cold. Three steps that turn cheap chicken into a feast! 1) [Odor removal] Sprinkle salt on chicken for 10 minutes → wash and remove wetness. 2) [Umami boost] Mix the rehydrated dried Shiitake well with the chicken and sit for 10 minutes. 3) [Grill well] Take out Shiitake early to prevent them from burning, and grill the chicken skin thoroughly. The dried Shiitake, not the fresh ones, are full of Guanylate and make the chicken Umami rich. Carefully removing the yellow fat from the chicken will further remove the odor and make it tastier. It's a great accompaniment to a beer!
