Chicken Karaage

Posted November 5th, 2010 in Food No Comments »

I’m eating fried food too often these days….

Sometimes I feel like eating “meat”, and last night was the day!  I had some Japanese mayonnaise left in the fridge, so I made karaage with buffalo wings.  Meat with bone and skin on is much tastier and I often find cheaper.

You can put all ingredients in a plastig bag and marinate, which leaves your hands and chopping board clean.  Toss the ingredients around inside the bag so that all the flavour goes to the meat evenly.

I served it with steamed rice, Japanese mayonnaise, and lots n lots of lettuce (or shredded cabbage)!

<Chicken Karaage (buffalo wings)>

  • 500g buffalo wings
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tbs sake
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • 2 tbs corn flour to coat
  1. Place wings in a plastic bag, and add the sauces, garlic and ginger.  Marinate for 5 minutes.
  2. Add corn flour to the plastic bag, and coat the meat evenly.  The flour becomes paste-like.
  3. Heat oil in a deep pan to 160~170℃.  Fry the wings until golden.

* You can, of course, use chicken meat without skin/bones.  Also try octopus, squid, fish and seafood!
