About this recipe: This is a recipe for Japanese-inspired crispy fried chicken. If you like Japanese flavours, you will love this dish. Very crispy, and my friends like it too. The rice flour and potato starch help to make the chicken extra crispy.
Potato starch and rice flour are available in Chinese / oriental and health shops.
This is an excellent recipe and it really does taste like chicken that you would find in an Asian restaurant. I couldn't find regular potato starch but I did find potato pancake mix and it worked beautifully. This is the only way I'll make fried chicken from now on. Thanks Amy! - 26 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This chicken is absolutely excellent! A thin, crispy, tasty batter covering tender morsels of chicken. I served this chicken with basmati rice and steamed carrots. I check the local supermarked for rice flour and potato starch and found they had rice flour but no potato starch. Then I came across a gluten free all-purpose mix in the same store. The mix listed rice flour, tapioco starch and potato starch as the first three ingredients and thus I decided to give it a try. It worked perfectly. Definitely give this recipe a try. You won't regret it. - 20 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent! Japanese chicken just like in the restaurants. I made mine with wings and my 3-year-old son loved it so much he ate 7 pieces. - 13 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
