Servings 4 a
- 6 boneless chicken thighs (with skin) 750g/26oz
- 2 tbsp grated ginger
- 5 cloves garlic
- 2 tbsp coconut aminos
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp dashi powder (fish granule) or chicken granule (OPTIONAL)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup egg white protein powder 60g/2.11oz
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- oil for frying I used lard
Add the lard to a pot and heat to 130-140C/266-284F.
Grate the ginger, mince the garlic and cut the chicken thighs into bite size pieces.
In a large bowl, add the chicken, ginger, garlic, coconut animos, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of pepper, dashi, and eggs. Mix well together until all of the seasoning has coated all of the chicken thoroughly. Let marinade for 30 minutes or 1 day in the fridge.
Mix the 1/2 tsp of salt and pepper with the egg white protein.
Dip each piece of chicken, one by one, in the egg white protein powder. Make sure all sides of the chicken is coated and then add it to the hot oil. Fry in batches for 3-5 minutes or until the inner temperature inserted inside the chicken thigh registers at 65C/149F or higher.
Remove the chicken from the hot oil and onto a tray or paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
Japanese Tartar Sauce
Carefully remove the egg yolks from the egg whites. Take the egg whites and chop them finely with a knife. Mince the pickle. Mince the onion thinly and put in a little bowl of water for 2 minutes. Drain the water out.
In a large bowl, combine the mayo, chopped egg whites and pickle, minced onion, lemon juice and stevia powder. With your hands, crumble the egg yolks and add it to the bowl. Mix everything together.
Spoon the tartar sauce over the fried chicken and ENJOY!
*Before coating the chicken into the egg white protein powder, you MUST absolutely coat the raw chicken in eggs. The powder will NOT stick without the eggs.
*You can flavour the chicken in any seasonings you want! Even plain salt and pepper is delicious.
