Sprinkle some salt and pepper (not listed) over the chicken wings and rub it in.
Mix together the ★ ingredients in a bowl.
Combine steps 1 and 2 into a strong plastic bag (I use Ziploc) and massage for about 30 minutes.
Let step 3 rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Put the ◇ dry ingredients into a bowl and mix in a circular motion with a whisk (instead of sifting).
Remove the chicken from step 4 from the refrigerator and add the dry ingredients from step 5.
Close the bag tightly and shake well to cover all pieces with the flour.
Fry in 165-170℃ oil. Once golden brown they're complete.
Story Behind this Recipe
My husband put in a request for garlic flavored karaage. I just used whatever I had on hand at home. And my husband and the kids found it to be really delicious! I made a well-received karaage.
When frying in step 8 please avoid quickly touching the meat with chopsticks, etc. For turning the meat over, etc, wait until a minute after you start to fry them. The meat won't clump together in the pot, so it's okay.
