“Delicious nuggets of sweet, sesame garlicky goodness.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl mix together mochiko, corn starch, sugar, eggs, shoyu, salt, sesame oil, garlic and ¼ cup of green onions.
  2. Cut chicken into bite size pieces for quick and even cooking.
  3. Fold chicken into batter and let marinate in the refrigerator for 24 to a maximum of 48 hours.
  4. Stir mochiko chicken batter every once in a while so that the flavor is evenly distributed.
  5. For large batches (for parties) I marinate it for at least 24hrs in a large bowl or pot, then I double Ziploc bag it, in batches and store them in a cooler on ice until I'm ready to cook it.
  6. When ready, Deepfry chicken for about 5 - 7 minutes or until dark golden brown and place in a pan lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil.
  7. Garnish with chopped green onion and sesame seeds.
  8. If using chicken breasts, cook for 3 to 4 minutes and serve hot, the chicken will be nice and tender.
