Marinated Fried Chicken
Tatsuta age is a delicious variation of karaage (Japanese-style fried chicken) made with succulent chicken thigh soaked in a soy-based marinade, coated in a layer of potato starch, and fried until golden like autumn leaves!
what you'll need:
» boneless skin-on chicken thigh
» soy sauce
» black pepper
» grated garlic
» grated ginger
» potato starch
» cooking oil (for shallow frying)
Cut the chicken into bitesize pieces. Try to cut them to similar sizes to ensure even cooking.
Place the chicken in a container and add soy sauce, sake, black pepper, grated garlic and grated ginger. Mix well and marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge.
Preheat the oil to 160°C (320°F) and coat each piece of chicken generously with potato starch.
Place the chicken in the oil and fry for 3 minutes on each side.
Increase the heat to 190°C (374°F) and fry for 1 minute on each side at the higher temperature.
Transfer the tatsuta-age to a wire rack to allow the excess oil to drain off.
Serve with a few wedges of lemon and enjoy!
