Chicken Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken)

One of my favourite Japanese classic dish is chicken karaage (唐揚げ), or Japanese-style deep fried chicken. It is both easy and cheap to make this at home. It makes a great finger food as well as a side dish to accompany almost any meal, whether Japanese or otherwise (such as plain aglio olio).

I love to accompany it with the no-fuss zaru soba and miso soup for a truly quick and satisfying Japanese home-cooked meal. The ingredients are cheap and you can make more for less buck at home. Serve it with a wedge of lemon and squeeze the juice over the chicken just before serving.

      can try oven or air-fryer, but I think deep frying will be nicer ;)

    It is indeed simple and satisfying! I don’t usually deep fry food at home so I’d just leave it for when I eat out :D

    Do i fry together with the mince garlic bits or remove the garlic bits?


    • wiffy replied: — May 29th, 2014 @ 2:25 pm

      They are minced and mixed with the chicken marinade. No need to remove :)
