Japanese style deep fried chicken
I enjoyed cooking Japanese style fried chicken, Tatsuta-age, a home cooking dish in Japan, in this video. Rub the chicken well by hand to enhance the flavour and deep-fry for its crispiness. It’s great for a packed lunch as it’s tasty, even if it’s cold.
Ingredients (serves 4)
Chicken Thighs (boneless) 500～600g
Potato flour to coat the chicken pieces
(You can also buy potato flour at health shops or Oriental supermarkets.)
Oil for deep-frying
4 Wedges of lemon

Rice wine or White wine 3tbs
Japanese granular bonito stock 1tbs (optional)

1. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and put in a bowl.
2. Add the marinade sauce (A), and then mix well by rubbing the marinade sauce into the chicken with your hand.
3. coated chicken pieces with potato flour , and then deep-fry in oil at 170°c until golden-brown.
