Japanese Fried Chicken
Sarah Mastracco shares an easy recipe for fried chicken with Asian spices.
Heat oil in a deep heavy-bottomed pot until it reaches 350 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer.
In a medium bowl, whisk together coating mix with water until a medium-thick batter forms. Working in batches, dredge chicken in batter to completely coat and add to hot oil. Cook, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Meanwhile, dredge chiles in batter and add to hot oil; cook until crisp, about 1 minute.
Transfer chicken and chiles to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Serve with slaw and steamed buns. Garnish with lime and cilantro, as desired.
