JFC Japanese Fried Chicken (Karaage)


Japanese Fried Chicken, humorously known as ‘JFC’ is called karaage in Japan. Inspired by Chinese fried chicken recipes this is a delicious izakaya or bento box favourite, comprised of crunchy, deep fried pieces of marinated chicken with a liberal squeeze of lemon juice over the top.

Karaage should never be greasy, and by using katakuriko starch flour it is also a great gluten free recipe too. Perfect eaten hot or cold this simple recipe is quick to make and produces fantastic results.
