About the Recipe

If you want some deep fried chicken ("tori no karaage") but you don't want to deep fry, this is the recipe for you. I make this a lot - less oil, more health - you can't argue with that.


400g boneless chicken thigh

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp mirin

2.5 tbsp veg oil

a pinch of salt & pepper

1 tsp ginger paste

2 tsp garlic paste

70g potato flour

6 asparagus

1/2 lemon

a sheet of aluminium foil


cut the chicken into bite size pieces and marinade with the pinch of salt & pepper, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, mirin, 1.5 tbsp of the veg oil in a bowl. set aside for at least 30 mins

cut off the bottom ends of the asparagus and halve

cover a baking try with aluminium foil and brush on 1/2 tbsp of oil

coat the chicken with the potato flour and put it on the tray 

leave to stand for 15 mins until the flour is absorbed

heat the oven to 220 C / 430 F.  place the asparagus next to the chicken and sprinkle 1/2 tbsp of oil over it

put the tray in the oven for 20mins

remove from the oven and serve immediately with slices of lemon as a garnish
