This has been a long time favorite of mine.

Back in 98.. when I was living on my own for the first time.. and was teaching myself how to cook.. I discovered this website. Even though they havent updated it in years, it is still by far one of my favorite places to go for unusual but simple recipes.

To me.. this is the ultimate chicken nugget.
For the original recipe, step by step photos, and a charming story... click here.

  • 2 tablespoons soy-sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger-juice
  • 2 tablespoons Sake
  • 0.5-1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2-2.5 tablespoons Katakuriko (potato starch)
  • 1 piece of minced garlic


  • Combine all ingredients and marinate... for one hour to overnight.

    Sometimes I will roll the chicken in flour before frying... sometimes not... it all depends on my mood. But I think I prefer it without the flour.

    Preheat oil on medium heat (160 C). Deep-fry chicken until golden brown about 3-5 minutes.

    *raises hand* can anything fried that beautifully be anything but incredible?

    Oh, with that marinade, and then deep-frying...it sounds really delicious!
