Recipe: Air Fryer Chicken Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken)

 Who loves fried chicken? I DO! Ever since we got an air fryer, I've been trying out lots of fried chicken recipes and this Air Fryer Chicken Karaage is one of my favourites!

Chicken karaage is Japanese-style fried chicken. It's best to use boneless chicken thigh or chicken chop for this recipe cos you get tender, moist chicken as well as crispy fried skin in one bite. The chicken are cut into bite-sized chunks and then marinated with Japanese soy sauce, cooking sake, grated garlic and ginger for at least one hour. Then it's dredged in seasoned potato flour and air fried for 15-20 minutes. It's that simple! During my last attempt, I added some baking powder to the flour dredge and it turned out ultra crispy. We love having chicken karaage with either cold soba or udon. A simple yet satisfying meal, not to mention a healthy way of frying chicken since very little oil is used in the process.
