1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil over high heat. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente, approx. 9 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water before draining the pasta.
2. While the pasta cooks, melt the butter into a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the red pepper and onions to the pan, and sauté until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken strips to the pan and continue cooking, stirring often, until the chicken’s browned and cooked through, 3-5 minutes.
3. Add the pâté and the garlic to the pan and stir until the pâté melts. Add the sherry, wine (or lemon juice), OKAZU and the grapes to the pan, then pour in the reserved pasta water, just 2-3 tbsp. at a time, until a sauce forms that coats the chicken pieces and will soon coat the pasta. Season with salt according to taste.
4.Toss the pasta with the pate sauce and chicken pieces, top with extra OKAZU and serve.

I make about 200 dumplings at a time and freeze them. It is a bit of a production to make, but it is so worth it. I'm always excited when I get to eat these, it's not like a sad frozen dinner, and they are so convenient. Try these gyoza with steamed rice and some sauteed bean sprouts, and beer!

We love matcha! These butter cookies aren’t too sweet and they highlight the delicate bitterness of matcha (green tea powder). Fumi has been gobbling these up. Enjoy with a cup of hot tea.
