In Hawaii, if there’s one thing we love its pot lucks. Pot lucks are when a group of people get together and everyone brings a dish to share. One of my all-time favorite contributions is Mochiko Chicken. It is sort of like a Japanese sweet fried chicken. It’s easy to make and always the hit of any party.
Serves 4 to 6
2 lb boneless, skinless chicken, cut into small pieces
4 tablespoons Mochiko flour
4 tablespoons cornstarch
4 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons soy sauce (recommended: Aloha Shoyu)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
¼ teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
Oil for frying
Combine all ingredients except chicken and oil. Add chicken and marinate overnight or for at least 5 hours. Fry in oil until golden brown.
