Put it in a fridge for at least 1 hour. Then, mix with all-purpose flour and deep fry it in hot oil until getting some golden yellow color. set aside to let the excess oil drain. However, these days the restaurants are turning to a ready-to-cook Karaage in order to reduce the amount of time. Also, it lasts longer without losing its taste.
Japanese Style Crispy Fried Chicken is made with the best selection of chicken meat, well marinated with fine seasonings and mixed in special flour. It tastes just like the original.

Then, increase the heat and continue deep-frying for around 30 minutes. Set aside to let the excess oil drain.
