One of my favorite Japanese dishes is Karaage Chicken! This recipe by my dad was good and was served with lotus root & fried basil.


Cut chicken thighs into 3 bite size pieces.  Marinade in marinade for 15 minutes.  Drain chicken after 15 minutes and dust with potato starch.

Don’t  deep fry chicken, part of the chicken should be sitting above the oil.  Fry for 3 minutes, turn over and fry for 2 more minutes.  Drain on paper towel.

Cut lotus root into 1 inch slices.  Fry in same oil you used to fry the chicken.  Fry for 1 minute, tuning over once.  Do the same with thai basil leaves. Sprinkle salt on lotus root and Thai basil. 

Squeeze lemon on chicken and enjoy!
