Ingredients: 4 servings

Chicken thighs
Salt and pepper, coarsely ground
to taste
Black pepper, coarsely ground
to taste
Plain flour
to dredge the chicken
White sesame seeds
to taste
3 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
4 tablespoons
Dashi stock granules
1/2 teaspoon


1. Combine all the ingredients for the the sauce and bring to a boil.
2. Sprinkle coarsely ground salt and pepper lightly on both sides of the chicken, and sprinkle extra black pepper.
3. Cut the chicken into about 8 bite size pieces.
4. Coat the chicken with flour and shake off the excess.
5. Heat the oil for deep-frying. To check the right temperature for frying, put the chopsticks in the oil to see when the bubbles form around the chopsticks.
6. Place the chicken pieces in one by one and deep-fry over a medium heat. Move the chicken pieces in the oil periodically.
7. When the chicken pieces start to come up to the surface, increase the heat to high. Fry the chicken until crispy.
8. Take the chicken out and drain off the oil well.
9. Coat the fried chicken with the prepared sauce in Step 1.
10. Transfer the chicken to a plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
11. Place into a serving dish, drizzle the leftover sauce over the chicken and serve.
