Addictive Spicy Karaage with Doubanjiang

Here's a fried chicken seasoned in soy sauce with a spicy kick. For kids or those who don't like spicy foods, you can leave out the doubanjiang -- it'll still be delicious.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Chicken
300-350 g
●Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
●Sake
2 tablespoons
●Doubanjiang
1-1.5 teaspoons
●Grated ginger
1 teaspoon
●Grated garlic
1 teaspoon
Katakuriko
as needed
Frying oil
as needed

Steps

1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and put in a plastic bag. Open the thick parts of the chicken so that it will cook through quickly .
2. Mix together the ● ingredients and add to the plastic bag. Massage in, then let sit for at least 10 minutes (or for an hour).
3. Add a generous amount of katakuriko to the bag. Close the bag with some air, and shake to coat the chicken with the katakuriko.
4. Fry in 170-180 ℃ oil. When they're crispy and golden brown, they're done.
5. Enjoy while they're hot. They're delicious without adding anything else.
