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.

    I would so eat that! I have to try more Asian food this year…

  4. Fried chicken Asian-style – one of my faves! And, Kikkoman’s mix does make it really easy to make. It was great seeing you today :)

    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!

    I made this myself recently! Only nobody told me there was a mix. That’s good to know. GREG

    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!

  8. This is a dish that is often ordered when dining out. Of course, it’s just as good when made at home!

  9. Have never heard of this before, but it looks like beautiful fried chicken. Didn’t know that was possible! ;) Will have to give it a try, especially since there’s even a mix for it! Thanks, Quyen!

    The Duo Dishes: I agree!

    Nikki @ Pennies on a Platter: Aww – thank you Nikki! The mix totally makes it a cinch to throw together!
