Momofuku Fried Chicken

As you might have guessed by now, my children loves chicken drumettes and it's true especially for my son. Whenever I make Teba Shio (Japanese Salted Wings) or other Asian styled chicken drumettes for dinner, he always ignores his rice and eats mostly just the drumettes for the meal. This Momofuku drumettes are very simple to prepare and it's extremely tasty. They can be served both as an appetizer or the main course.

Chicken Karaage 鶏の唐揚げ

Chicken Karaage 鶏の唐揚げ

Among the classic Japanese dish, tempura, broiled fish, etc, one of my favorite is chicken karaage - aka Japanese fried chicken. Japanese fried chicken is quite different from American fried chicken since we typically uses boneless piece of chicken. The chicken itself is well marinated and dipped in corn starch for a crispy flaky crust. If you haven't guessed by now, this is another one of my children's favorite.

Japanese call Chicken Cacciatore "Chicken Tomato Ni (チキンのトマト煮)" and it is actually a pretty common home cooked meal in Japan. My kids love this dish and it's one of our favorite comfort food.
