Chicken Karaage + Green Onion Sauce

Chicken Karaage + Green Onion Sauce

The green onion sauce is so good and forms part of our regular menu at my house.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Chicken (breast or thigh)
600 g
A. Sake
1 tablespoon
A. Soy sauce
2 teaspoons
A. Grated ginger
1/2 tablespoon
Japanese leek
1/2
B. Sugar
2 tablespoons
B. Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
B. Vinegar
2 tablespoons
B. Sesame oil
2 teaspoons
Katakuriko
as needed

Steps

1. Cut the chicken into slightly large pieces. Rub the A. ingredients into the chicken and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
2. Combine the B seasonings well. Add the minced green onion to finish making the sauce.
3. Drain off the marinade from Step 1 well and coat the chicken completely with katakuriko. Deep fry in 170°C oil until golden and crispy, then drain well.
4. Arrange the piping hot chicken karaage onto a plate and cover with the green onion sauce.
5. Update: I changed the amount of ingredients for the green onion sauce.
6. I use a ratio of 1:1:1 for the sugar:soy sauce:vinegar. I never change this ratio. But I do change the amounts.
