Butterfly the chicken breast and slice diagonally into bite-sized pieces.
Put the ○ ingredients into a plastic bag with the chicken and rub the seasonings into the meat. Press the air out of the bag, and allow to marinate for a while.
Coat in katakuriko then deep fry in oil over medium heat. You could also shallow-fry with a small amount of oil.
Story Behind this Recipe
I came up with this recipe to add some flavor variation to fried chicken. Also, I wanted to come up with a way to tenderize the breast meat, which usually becomes tough when deep fried. This fried chicken has an appealing orange tint to it, and is delicious.
Use a generous amount of salt and pepper. You can substitute cake flour for the katakuriko, or you could use a blend of both. It should also taste great with some grated garlic. Try serving it with ketchup or curry-flavored salt.
