Recipe #12 - Gluten-free fried chicken

When I was in primary school, every year on the sports festival, my mother made this big lunch box for me and my family to share. I remember being so excited for the festival just because I could have my mum's obento :) Among all the delicious dishes in the box, one of the staples and my absolute favourite was this karaage (Japanese fried chicken). Though hers was somewhat more crispy & spicy, I made this memorable dish with gluten-free flour so that David and I both can enjoy :)
n.b. I often make a lot and freeze it :) As my karaage is always smaller, I just chuck it in the obento box frozen in the morning, and let it thaw while waiting for the lunch time to come  - or heat up right before eating :)




2 chicken thighs, deboned, diced

For marinating the chicken
1 small clove of garlic, finely grated
1/3 teaspoon of ginger, finely grated
1 teaspoon of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of Mirin

For coating
3 tablespoon of gluten-free flour, or corn flour
Some black pepper

1 + 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil



1. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes
2. Get rid of the excess liquid from the chicken
3. Coat the chicken
4. Fry them in the pan until nicely brown & crispy
5. Try to get rid of excess oil with kitchen towels before serving :)
And I made a little karaage-don (fried chicken bowl with rice)! :)
Enjoy with a splash of lemon juice :)
and/or mayonnaise :)
 Sweet chilli sauce or teriyaki sauce would be lovely too!
