"This mochiko chicken is my daughter's favorite thing in the whole wide world. If you have never eaten mochiko chicken then you don't know what you been missing.

I have to triple the recipe and there is never leftovers."

- Mix sugar, mochiko, cornstarch, and salt together in a bowl.
- Whisk eggs, green onions, soy sauce, sesame seeds, and garlic together in a bowl. Whisk into the flour mixture to form a smooth batter.
- Stir chicken strips gently into the batter. Marinate in the refrigerator, 4 hours to overnight.
- Fill a deep saucepan with 1 1/2 inch oil; heat over medium heat. Fry chicken strips in batches in the hot oil, turning occasionally, until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, about 7 minutes.
- Cook's Note:

- Editor's Note:
- We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
