Who doesn’t love fried chicken? This garlicky and gingery Japanese version is tasty as it is, but also great served with grated daikon radish, Japanese-style potato salad and ponzu dipping sauce.
Mix the soy sauce, sake, sesame oil, egg white, garlic and ginger together. Pour the mixture over the chicken in a bowl and mix well. Place in the fridge to marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat the sunflower oil in a deep saucepan over medium–high heat until it reaches 180°C (350°F).
