Karaage (deep fried chicken bits) Stir fried spinach with garlic and ginger Miso soup with daikon and daikon leaves Rice
I get sore throat very easily so I usually don't eat / cook deep fried food. But this morning, I saw this TV program on "how to make good deep fried chicken at home" and wanted to try it with the chicken breast in the fridge.
According to the show, when you marinade the meat, add 1 teaspoon of honey to speed up the absortion. Also,instead of all purpose flour, use potato starch (katakuriko) to coat the chicken for crispiness.
Ok so I marinaded it and had everything ready...except when I ran out of katakuriko!!!!!!! So I ended up using flour anyway. But turned out alright.
Hubby LOOOOOOOOOOOOVES "karaage" and asked if I was making chicken the moment he stepped into the door. Didn't know he has such sensitive nose.
