This karaage recipe is the simplest, easiest and cleanest you can make! Just make umami seasoning ahead of time and marinade with it! So simple, yet so delish!
Put all the umami soy sauce ingredients in an empty jar and leave it at least 6 hours before use. Use it up within 10 days.
Cut the chicken into bite size pieces.
In a bowl, add the chicken pieces and umami soy sauce, marinade about 10 to 15 minutes.
Using a plastic bag, add potato starch and chicken pieces (not the chicken juice from the bowl!) massage until chicken is well coated.
Pour frying oil in a pot, heat to around 180 Celsius.
Fry the chicken until it lightens in weight and frying/splashing sounds are less prominent.
Serve with slices of lemon.
