For Bento Karaage-Kun style Chicken

My son loves the Fried Chicken they have in the Lawson convenience stores here in Japan.

I made this for my family with cheap chicken breast.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken breast
2 teaspoons
*Soup stock granules (Consomme bouillon powder)
1 teaspoon (half if using cubes)
*Seasoning salt and pepper
a small amount
*Chili pepper powder
10 shakes (about 1 teaspoon)
1.5 tablespoons
1 teaspoon
*Whisked egg (optional)
About 2 tablespoons
1-2 level tablespoons
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Mix the Weipa and consommé with the sake, and microwave for 20 seconds. Cut the chicken into 1 cm cubes, and lightly tenderize with a knife.
2. Place the microwave seasonings, * ingredients, and chicken from step 1 into a plastic bag, and rub together. Let it sit for about 10-20 minute to let the flavor soak in if you can.
3. Add the katakuriko, and rub some more to blend together. Tilt the meat to one side of the bag, and cut where there red line is shown in the picture with a pair of scissors.
4. Scoop up the meat with a tablespoon, press down from the top with cooking chopsticks to shape, slide the chicken into 180℃ oil, fry until crispy, and it is done.
5. Fry slowly in a small amount of oil. It burns easily and the oil will fly about, so be careful.
6. A user, named Fuu, made curry-flavored nuggets. They look delicious, so I hurried up and made them, and they were so rich and tasty. Try them out if you like curry.
7. You can make do without the whisked egg, but it makes the nuggets soft and fluffy.
