Karaage Japanese Fried Chicken

Prep Time
Cook Time
Karaage is Japanese style fried chicken (two words: kara age). It is a great appetizer for your drinks, kids (and adult) friendly dinner, and also a perfect small dish for your lunch box. Japanese Karaage is usually seasoned with garlic and ginger along with soy sauce, coated lightly with flour, and deep fried. Because of the oil, it may not be the healthiest Japanese food but it’s certainly a very popular one in Japan.

Cooking Recipe


4 chicken thighs
2 Tbsp Sake
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1-2 tsp garlic, grated
1-2 tsp ginger, grated
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup corn starch
salt and pepper
oil for deep frying


Cut a chicken thigh into 3-4 pieces. In a medium size bowl, mix Sake, soy sauce, and salt with chicken. Let it sit for 1/2-1 hour.
Mix flour, corn starch and some salt and pepper in another bowl. Coat marinated chicken pieces with flour mixture.
Heat oil at medium high heat (350F). Deep fry for 5-8 minutes depending on the size of meat
