What is Karami Chicken?
Karami chicken (辛味チキン) is one of the most loved dishes at Japanese-Italian family restaurants "Saizeriya (サイゼリヤ)" In fact, karami chicken is nothing to do with Italian cuisine though, it's more like Buffalo wings. Whenever I go to Saizeriya, I order this side dish without a fail, I bet most Japanese people would do the same. It's one of their signature dishes.

Karami but not that spicy
Even though the dish is called "karami" (辛味), which literally means spicy flavour in Japanese, it's not that spicy. It has a sweet-mildly spicy kind of taste and I would say it's pretty addictive, I could eat them all day!
You don't need to visit Saizeriya to enjoy these addictive Karami Chicken Wings! They're pretty straight forward to make at home and can be enjoyed by the whole family!
