Airfry Karaage Japanese Fried Chicken

Spread the love

As I have mention  in my previous recipe Tebasaki. I am crazy in love with fried chicken. Precisely because it’s a healthier source of protein compared to its other counterparts such as beef or pork. As a fitness enthusiast,  protein diet is an essential part of my daily food intake. It aids in muscle building which is my goal since I started working out.

One of my most favorite fried chicken dishes is chicken “karaage.” It’s the Japanese version of the classic fried chicken. Karaage is a cooking technique in which meat or vegetable is coated in flour or potato starch, and fried in hot oil until crispy.

This is a perfect go-to dish if you are trying to get into a high protein diet. It’s simple to make and is also very delicious. It’s crispy on the outside and juicy on the side.

Since we will be using the air fryer to cook this amazing dish, you can forget about the greasiness that comes from cooking in oil. This recipe is also a little bit healthier than its regular counterpart. So get yourself ready, and will start cooking. Here’s how you do it.
