Chicken In Tokyo / Japan

I love chicken (white meat only - preferably skinless/boneless).

Is it easy or possible to find in Japan, other than KFC?

Will I find it easier in Indian eateries?
I like Indian, however, I want to find Japanese chicken dishes, if possible.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated.

Chicken is everywhere, though thigh meat is most popular.

Yakitori is seldom breast, often skin, thigh, liver, heart...but it is chicken.

I used to love chicken yakitori from the street vendors.
Did not see any on my last trip so hopefully they are still around?

They're in the neighborhood's "main" little road where you find the tofu man, the fishmonger - little mom & pop stand sometimes doubling as you local butcher. Just follow your nose !!!!!! Ask for "MUNE". You can also find them in the prepared section of the supermarkets.

I would add "oyako-don" to the list of my favorite chicken dishes. Oyako-don is chicken and egg with a special sauce over rice. It's a type of comfort food and it's extremely tasty.

I think chicken thigh is used in this dish.

I believe fried chicken cutlet (chikin-katsu) is usually boneless breast meat, just like schnitzels.
You can also try tsukune, a kind of chicken meatballs.
White meat is "sasami" (not to be confused with sashimi).
I spotted different kinds of bento lunch-box for take away at department stores (they usually have food halls on the basements), some with what seemed like teriyaki chicken.
