I like the Japanese Karaage Chicken. The taste is salty and yummy. But usually the ones sold outside are those with skin, deep fried and yummy!
So for a healthier version, I used chicken breast and air fried it, with little oil of course. The taste is quite like the karaage.
1 to 2 pieces of chicken breast cut into bite size pieces
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp plain flour
1 tbsp corn flour
Half a beaten egg
1. Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients. Leave for at least an hour.
2. Put baking paper on the basket. Spread some oil.
3. Air fry chicken at 200 degrees for 15 minutes. (Flip them halfway)
Usually karaage is marinated with soya sauce, sake, ginger juice first before being dipped into egg n flour mixture for deep fry. But I prefer to do it all at once for the convenience. I guess the key to prevent chicken breast from getting too dry or hard is not to fry it for too long. The healthier version of using less oil and skinless, suits us fine. 🙂
