Kara-Age Chicken


Kara-Áge is a popular Japanese dish of  bite size fried chicken, which can be enjoyed as an appetizer or as a meal.  The nuggets of chicken are lightly coated in a starch and flour mixture that is seasoned with soy and ginger.  It’s moist, tender, flavorful and crunchy.  Kikkoman has made it is easy to recreate this dish at home with the Kara-Áge Coating Mix.  The coating mix is versatile and works well with fish and shrimp too.  Kara-Áge can be served with a squeeze of lemon, ponzu sauce and rice.  It’s a quick and easy meal that you can enjoy on the weeknights.

It's super easy to make: Put coating mix and chicken in a plastic bag, shake to coat and then fry in a skillet.

    This sounds really easy and delicious! Once I am done with my January “detox” (I will NOT call it a diet!) I’ll have to try this recipe.
    One of my goals this year is to get a bit more comfortable with making various Asian recipes. I went to Market World yesterday (here in Torrance) and it was an overwhelming experience (again:) But, It’s so close to our home and I intend to be a busy little bee and learn as much as I can to plan my outings.
    It was great seeing you on Saturday!

    Geez Louise: I would eat fried anything! 🙂

    Priscilla – She’s Cookin’: It was great catching up today! Kikkoman makes a lot of things easier! 🙂

    Lana: Thank you! I can’t wait to see what you create in your kitchen with access to such a fun market!

    sippitysup: I’m sure you didn’t need any help from Kikkoman! 🙂 I drove home for lunch, whipped this up, took pictures and then my husband and I ate every single piece of chicken! I was super pressed for time – had to throw lunch together and head back to the office! I’m insane sometimes!
