Step 1

Start by cutting the chicken into suitably large pieces. Dice of about 1.5 x 1.5 cm are perfect. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

This sauce is very simple and I mix everything before I start with the dish. The sauce looks a bit cloudy when you make it, but when it starts to boil, the color becomes clear and it thickens.

Step 4

Then I make the tempura batter. You should dip the chicken in this before deep-frying or baking it in plenty of oil. Mix all the ingredients together and stir well. The amount of water can vary slightly, but the most important thing is that the consistency is like a pancake batter.

Step 5

Dip the pieces of chicken in the batter and place directly into the oil. I recommend that the oil has a temperature of about 170 degrees. If you do not have a fryer, you can make this in a saucepan or frying pan with a high edge. Then you just pour good oil in it and fry in the same way. Cook until the chicken has a golden and nice color. I pick up a piece and divide in half to make sure the chicken is cooked through.
