Fried chicken Karage


  • Whisk the mirin and soy with the ginger, garlic, sugar, sesame oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken, toss well and refrigerate for 15-20 mins.
  • When ready, heat the vegetable oil to 180°-190°C for frying.
  • Combine the flours in another large bowl.
  • Then remove the chicken from the marinade, dust with flour and fry, being careful not to overcrowd. Drain well on kitchen paper towels.
  • Serve the chicken with lemon wedges on the side.
