Chicken Karaage

Chicken Karaage

Ingredients

Chicken:

300 g boneless chicken thighs
1/2 cup potato starch (substitute with cornstarch)

Marinade:

1 piece fresh ginger
3 Tbs soy sauce
1 Tbs sake

Frying:

Peanut oil or vegetable oil, for frying

Method

Cut up the chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces.

Peel and finely grate ginger.

Put the chicken pieces in a bowl. Add the grated ginger, soy sauce and sake, and mix well. Let marinate for a minimum of 10 minutes.

Heat the oil and test with a single piece of chicken or a small piece of chicken skin. Toss enough potato or cornstarch into the marinated chicken so that each piece is completely coated.

Fry the chicken pieces a few at a time until a deep golden brown.

Drain well - a wire rack is best for this, but paper towels work too.

Place into a bowl to serve and share.
