  • 500g boneless chicken thighs, cut into small bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp grated garlic
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Cooked rice for serving
  • Optional toppings: sliced green onions, sesame seeds


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken pieces, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cornstarch, and egg. Mix well, making sure the chicken is evenly coated. Let it marinate for at least 10 minutes.
  2. In a separate shallow dish, spread out the panko breadcrumbs. Take each marinated chicken piece and coat it in the breadcrumbs, pressing lightly to adhere.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Carefully place the breaded chicken pieces in the hot oil and fry until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side.
  4. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the oil and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  5. Serve the crispy chicken over cooked rice, and top with sliced green onions and sesame seeds if desired. Enjoy your delicious and healthy Karaage Don!
