Japanese Fried Chicken with Egg Drop Dashi

Today I introduce you to “Japanese Fried Chicken with Egg Drop Dashi”.

This is a very delicious dish and is a popular dish in Japan. It is fried chicken breast in an egg-drop Dashi soup. Japanese fried food has very thin batter and a crunchy texture. We add the soup to the chicken right before we eat it so that we can enjoy the flavorful soup and crunchy fried chicken together. Mostly the dish is put on steamed rice so it is called Donburi. It provides carbohydrate and protein in one bowl so we usually have this during the busy lunch time.

The recipe is

(Fried Chicken)

Season a chicken breast with salt and pepper and batter with flour, beaten egg and bread crumbs. (See the picture, I sometimes use a supermarket flyers or newspaper to batter with flour and bread crumbs. This makes easy to cleanup!)

Fry about 5 minutes on each side. Slice and place on a plate.

(Egg-Drop Sauce)

Heat Dashi stock, sugar, cooking Sake, soy sauce and Mirin in a pan and pour beaten egg in the boiled soup.

Pour the egg-drop dashi soup on the fried chicken and sprinkle with green onion (to taste) right before serving.

I used bonito dashi stock but you can use any kind of stock. This is a Japanese style dish so It would be better to use bonito, shiitake mushroom, kelp, or anchovy dashi stock if it’s possible.

If you frequently want to add chopped green onion with a minimum of fuss to your dishes, here is a tip to store the chopped green onion. When you have time, chop some washed green onion, dry with paper towels, put in a plastic zipper bag and keep it in the freezer. Use within a month. You can add some to your dishes without defrosting.

Cheesy Chicken Roll

Everybody will like this dish! Fried chicken and cheese. To make this dish healthy I use spinach and chicken tenderloin. You can use any kind of cheese you want. Japanese sometimes cook this recipe with chicken breast or sliced pork. I choose chicken tenderloin because it’s healthy and cooks quickly.

Also, you can put anything into this recipe as long as the chicken is prepared properly. For example, basil leaf, potato, carrot, green beans and so on. When you prefer not to eat fried food, see the post “Simple Chicken Roll” recipe.

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!
