    Hello there! This looks great! I intend to try it this weekend. Just wondering. Is there salt in the mirin used in this recipe? And do you use cooking or regular sake? Many thanks!

          Both is fine, try it out and let us know the results, if you want a more flavorful sauce, add more chicken bones when making it.
