Just about every country has it own method of frying chicken. We recently cooked up this Japanese-style chicken (called “kara-age”) in the Flavorful World kitchen.  Flavored with soy sauce, garlic, and ginger, these boneless, skinless sections taste great on their own, or served with a dipping sauce of sweet chili.  Most Asian grocers carry pre-packaged kara-age seasoning batter mix, but if you ask me, no powder-filled paper envelope will ever compete with spice blends hand-mixed in one’s own kitchen.  That’s why this plate barely lasted long enough for this photo to be taken before every crumb was eaten.
