Have some fried chicken and give it a bit of Asian flair! With this Japanese Mochiko Chicken recipe, you can make this common Hawaiian “bento” and potluck item in the comfort of your own home, wherever you may be. I do enjoy exploring different ways of cooking chicken, particularly Asian-style options, and this is a good Japanese way of doing it, using mochiko (sweet rice flour). The crust is softer than most recipes for American fried chicken but still very flavorful.
Though this recipe is for wings, and that is how you will most often see this recipe used, you can make use of other chicken pieces as well, including most skinless and boneless options. Oh, and if you are having difficulty finding the mochiko, you can use something else with sweet rice flour in it, such as Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour. You may want to increase the amount of soy sauce, egg, and oyster sauce that you use in the batter, if you make that substitution, to keep the batter from being too thick and pasty.
