Serves: 4

By jogro



  • 2 tsp ginger fresh; grated

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 450g boneless chicken thighs cut into 1.5

  • 1 tbsp sake (rice wine)

  • 1 cornflour

  • 1 bag cornflour (to dip the chicken in)


  1. Mix the ginger, soy sauce, and sake in a bowl.
  2. Add the chicken, give it a stir and leave it to marinade for about 30 minutes.
  3. Dip the chicken pieces in the cornflour to coat them.
  4. Fry in splash of vegetable oil until brown (about 7-10 minutes).

Handy Hint

Keep turning the chicken in the pan and don't have the oil too hot - it needs to fry nicely but obviously you need it to cook through. You don't need too much oil.
