Nori Wrapped Mochiko Garlic Chicken
Added on Jan 20, 2021
5 chicken thighs, deboned and cut into 2-3 bite-size pieces (This depends on size of chicken thighs)
4 eggs
10 tbsp. soy sauce
6 tbsp. sugar
8 tbsp. mochiko flour
8 tbsp. corn starch
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground ginger
Oil for frying
5-6 nori sheets, cut into strips

Mix first eight ingredients together, now take your deboned chicken and lay them in a baking pan and pour your garlic mochiko mixture over all your chicken pieces evenly and marinate for 5-7 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

When you’re chicken is done marinating you’re going to wrap a piece of nori around a piece of chicken and continue this process until all you’re chicken has been wrapped with the nori. Now heat oil in a large wok and fry all your garlic mochiko nori wrapped chicken until golden brown, put chicken in a bowl with a paper towel when done to drain out excess oil. Enjoy

*Tip* you can leave the chicken skin on for this recipe but I took mine off.
