Sprinkle some salt on evenly, and rub the salt into each drumette by hand. Repeat the process using pepper.
Coat with katakuriko and fry in oil for 8-10 minutes.
Story Behind this Recipe
My husband loves fried chicken! My mother-in-law taught me this recipe.
I have never been good at making deep fried dishes, and used to have trouble cooking the meat through, but it's easy if you pierce it with a fork before you start! It tastes saltier if you sprinkle on the salt and pepper separately, rather than together.
