Karaage is a traditional Japanese recipe of chicken thighs. The chicken pieces, whether breast, thighs or wings, are cut into bite-sized pieces and placed in a spicy marinade. Kara-Age is not breaded, but covered with a thin layer of flour. Kara-Age becomes very juicy by deep frying and the tender meat literally spills in your mouth. 

The unique marinade

The ideal spicy marinade consists of fresh ginger, good-smelling garlic, high-quality soy sauce, original Japanese sake and sugar. These ingredients are available in nearly every German supermarket and are not expensive. Soy sauce and sake can also be used for many other Japanese dishes and should not be missed in your Japanese cooking cabinet. 

Kara-Age is perfect for your bento box

Karaage is also ideal as a component of your Bentobox. By frying, the chicken pieces can remain juicy and crispy and they taste almost as good as freshly prepared. Ideally you can also add rice, thin sliced ​​cabbage and Japanese mayonnaise. These ingredients take the dish to the next level. A slight Misu Shiro completes the court then.

  1. Cut up the ginger, the garlic and the chicken into bite-sized pieces.

  2. Then put the following ingredients in a freezer bag (ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sake / white wine, sugar and a little bit of oil about 1 tbsp).

  3. When everything is well mixed, add the chicken and knead well, with your bare hands that the marinade is well distributed.

  4. To allow the marinade to work optimally, we recommend you to put the bag in the fridge for about 5-20 minutes.
