Deep Fried Chicken Breast and Firm Tofu

Deep Fried Chicken Breast and Firm Tofu

Even though it's healthy, it's still tender and juicy. It tastes just like chicken thigh! It's one of my husband's favorites.

Ingredients

Chicken breast
200 g
Firm tofu
1 block
Soy sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons
Ginger from a tube
1 tablespoon
Katakuriko
2 tablespoons
Shiso, if desired
10 leaves
Frying oil
As needed

Steps

1. Cut the chicken into 1 cm cubes and put into a bowl.
2. Remove the excess moisture from the firm tofu and add to the bowl. Add the katakuriko, ginger and soy sauce and mix well with your hands. Thinly slice the shiso leaves and mix if desired.
3. Heat enough frying oil in a frying pan over medium heat and drop the mixture from the bowl into the frying pan using a spoon. Fry for about 5 minutes and then remove from the oil. Done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried making my own version of a deep fried tofu recipe that was featured on a magazine. If you add shiso, you'll have an easy appetizer to pair with drinks. Fresh, tender and seriously delicious. You can make a lot thanks to the tofu!
