Fried Chicken Sweet N' Sour Sauce with Tartar

I made a fancy fried chicken dish.
On top of the fluffy fried chicken with lots of egg is the spicy sweet n' sour sauce.
Feel free to top it with lots of tartar sauce.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Chicken thigh meat
Seasoning (sake, soy sauce)
1 tablespoon each
Breading (egg, katakuriko
1 egg, katakuriko as needed
○Sweet vinegar 「Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
Sesame oil (or rayu)
a small amount
garlic, ginger」
Grated, 1 tablespoon combined
○Tartar Sauce
as needed


1. Preparation 1: Make the tartar sauce. 2. Mix the sweet n' sour sauce together.
2. Preparation 3: Cut notches into the chicken, and remove the tendons. Pierce the skin with a fork. This tenderizes the meat.
3. Season with sake and soy sauce, and let sit for a while if you have the time. Rub the chicken thoroughly until no more juices come out.
4. Lightly coat the chicken from Step 2 in katakuriko, dip in lots of whisked egg, and fry thoroughly in 180℃ oil. If you fry them in a frying pan filled 70-80% full, then you can cut down on the oil.
5. Marinate the fried chicken in the sweet n' sour sauce, serve on plates, top with lots of tartar sauce, and it is done.
