Karaage is boneless Japanese chicken, marinated and then coated with potato starch and fried. Karaage is very popular in Japan and can be found almost everywhere, but has only been around for about 100 years. Having spent quite a bit of time in Japan, I have grown quite fond of karaage and decided that instead of buying store bought, why not make my own? And so I came up with this recipe that I have tweaked over time.
At my home we enjoy karaage as a snack or as a main course. It keeps well so my daughter brings it to school for lunch sometimes. It can be refrigerated and reheated later. And like many staple foods, there are nearly as many variations on this wonderful dish as there are kitchens that make it!
