Crispy Chicken Karaage is super easy to make and the perfect dish when you have a get-together at home! The secret to getting this dish golden brown and super crispy is in the double frying technique. Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Mmmm~
Pair this dish with cherry tomatoes and shredded Japanese cabbage to cleanse the palate.
Definitely something you do not want to miss!
