Japanese Fried Chicken bento – Karage


500gm chicken

1x packet of karage flour

4 Tbsp water

Oil for frying


Cut chicken into small pieces about 2cm long and put into a bowl with one packet of karage flour.

Add 4Tbsp water and mix well 

In a pan/pot, add oil to about nearly half way full and heat it on medium high heat. When you put a chopstick in the oil and bubbles start to appear around the tip, the oil temperature is now around 170C  and ready for deep frying.

Place chicken in the pan maximum 5 pieces at one time. Cook for 3min

then turn over and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Drain on paper towel for 3 minutes before serving !

I always put some aside for my kids bento box for the next day.

Serve with Japanese mayonnaise.Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 8.45.47 pm
