Japanese-Style Crispy Fried Chicken Tidbits

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This has a delicious thin crispy batter! Rice flour and potato starch can be easily found in the Asian section of you grocery store, potato starch is also known as kakakuriko, do not substitute these for all-purpose white flour, they are what makes the batter extra crispy! Serve this with your favorite sweet and sour sauce see Pineapple Sweet and Sour Sauce. You may double the recipe but make two separate recipes in two separate bowls, do not double and combine into one bowl.

When I finally got my hands on a packet of potato starch, I knew that this was the recipe I wanted to try out, and to my delight, everyone at home loved it. Chicken was so crispy yet moist. No tweaking necessary. Thank you for sharing.
