  • 1/4 cup mochiko flour (Japanese sweet rice flour)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions, reserve some for garnish
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Oil, for frying
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, optional


Step 1

Create the marinade by combining mochiko, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, eggs and green onions in a medium bowl. Make sure everything is blended. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces like nuggets, getting them as close to uniform in size as possible so they'll cook evenly when deep-frying.

Step 2

Add chicken to the marinade and use your hands to massage the chicken pieces and make sure they're all coated by the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or up to overnight.

Step 3

Bring oil to 350 degrees F in a deep-fryer or Dutch oven.

Step 4

Fry chicken in batches until crispy, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top, if using, and serve.
