    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut chicken meat into a bite sized pieces.
    2. 2
      Sprinkle a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon of Japanese Sake on the meats, knead them, and leave it about 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Sop up the Sake with paper towels and put the meats, all spices, and flour into a plastic bag.
    4. 4
      Knead the plastic bag until all spices and flour cover all meats.
    5. 5
      Fill a pan with vegetable oil for deep frying and heat it up with middle flame. When the pan is heated up enough, put the meats into the pan.
    6. 6
      If your pan is big enough(about 30 cm diameter), you can put them all at once (Don't put only a few pieces; it will make only the surface of meat char).
    7. 7
      Notes: If you see bubbles as soon as you put a wooden chop stick into the oil, this is too hot. If you see them after 2 seconds, it's just the right temperature. After deep-frying the meat about 7~8 minutes, make the flame stronger.
    8. 8
      When the chicken fried beautifully brown, take them out of the pan onto paper towels.
    9. 9
      In addition If you sprinkle lemon juice on the chicken, it tastes better.

      This is a fantastic chicken recipe and would have rated 5 or better stars but I had to make a couple of adjustments to the recipe. I found that 1 tbsp of sake was simply not enough to massage300 grams of chicken thigh and used 5 tbsp. I put the chicken into a ziplock bag poured in the sake and massaged it into the chicken through the bag. let it rest for 30 minutes and found there was none left to drain off. I mixed the dry spices (used 1 1/2 tsp paprika - amt not given in the recipe) in another zip lock bag added the chicken and tossed until all the pieces were evenly coated. Instead of deep frying I pan fried the chicken in 3 tbsp oil - fantastic, crunchy on the outside and moist inside. The flavor is very mildly curry but unless you knew it was in there you would be guessing. It is a lovely combination of flavors and will not bite you. This recipe is one that I can't wait to make again Thanks Recipezaar or whom ever the original chef was that posted this recipe
