Crispy Fried Chicken Chunks Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger juice
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon sake
    • 500g (1 lb) chicken breast, cut into bite-sized chunks
    • 90 g (2/cup) cornstarch
    • Oil for deep-frying
    • Lemon wedges for garnish

Method :

    1. Combine the ginger juice, garlic, soy sauce and sake in a mixing bowl. Marinate chicken pieces with mixture in the mixing bowl and let stand for 20 minutes.
    2. Drain chicken and toss lightly in cornstarch, shaking off any excess.
    3. Meanwhile, heat oil to 160˚C (325°F). Fry the chicken, about 4 to 5 pieces at a time, until golden and cooked through, about 4 minutes.
    4. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper toweling. When oil returns to 160˚C (325°F), add more chicken pieces and repeat until all the chunks are cooked. Keep chicken pieces warm until serving. Arrange on individual plates and garnish with lemon wedges.
