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
B. Sugar
2 tablespoons
B. Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
B. Vinegar
2 tablespoons
B. Sesame oil
2 teaspoons
as needed


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.
