Chicken Karaage Yuzu Pepper Flavored

Chicken Karaage Yuzu Pepper Flavored

Instead of the usual soy sauce, this chicken karaage is simply flavored with salt and a subtle yuzu pepper fragrance. It's not too spicy, so it's great for kids too!

Ingredients: 3 to 4 servings

Chicken thighs (boneless)
●Chicken soup stock (or bonito dashi stock)
50 ml
●Yuzu pepper paste
2 teaspoons
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
to taste
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Throw all the ● ingredients in a bowl, and mix well. That completes the marinade.
2. Chop the chicken up into pieces of the size you want. You can take off excess skin, but it'll taste better if you leave some on.
3. Throw the bite sized chicken pieces into the marinade from step 1. Mix it up a bit, and rest it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
4. Pat the chicken pieces dry, put into a bowl and toss in the katakuriko. Mix to coat, until all the chicken pieces are coated with katakuriko.
5. Double-fry in a good amount of oil. First fry over medium heat until the chicken is lightly colored, take it out and leave for 5 minutes. Then fry over high heat until golden brown.
6. Good, it's done. Salt-flavored karaage. The subtle yuzu pepper fragrance is so good! Dive into them without putting on any sauce and stuff.
