Karaage is a Japanese cooking technique similar to deep frying . I used it to create a delicious fried chicken sandwich. I also added some miso mayonnaise and an Asian-style slaw into the equation.

  • While chicken marinates, combine mayonnaise, miso, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and honey for the miso mayonnaise in a bowl.

  • Combine cabbage, carrots, cilantro, vinegar, green onions, sesame oil, sesame seeds, salt, and pepper for the slaw in another bowl.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove chicken from marinade and dredge in cornstarch, knocking off any excess.

  • Fry chicken in the hot oil until no longer pink in the centers and golden brown on the outsides, 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

  • Coat toasted buns with miso mayonnaise. Add fried chicken, top with slaw, and sprinkle each with togarashi. Serve.

Cook's Note:

I also like to top the sandwich with Sriracha (or whatever hot sauce you like), but that's optional.

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.
