Your Home for Homemade Japanese Food

How to cook "with visual instructions" "using familiar ingredients from your local grocery stores" healthy, traditional and delicious Japanese dishes!!

Chicken Karaage


Chicken Karaage is Japanese style fried chicken. Karaage is made in a very thin batter so it is very juicy, tender and flavorful. The chicken is also marinated in a  tasty sauce that is made of soy sauce, garlic and ginger. I am sure once you have a bite, you will not be able to stop eating because it is so delicious!

There are many kinds of Karaage, such as chicken, chicken gristle, shrimp, calamari, octopus, fish, fish bone and so on.

I used chicken breast to make the dish healthier. You can use chicken thigh instead if you prefer. I will also show you how to make the chicken breast more juicy with baking soda and salt in this recipe.

This is a very simple recipe but has great taste, texture and flavor.

Please enjoy it!
