Deep-fried chicken with sweet chili sauce


karaage to sweet chili sauce(からあげとスイートチリソース)

What kind of dish is fried chicken to sweet chili sauce?

Deep fried chicken is called karaage in Japan. This is very popular in Japan.

Normally karaage is seasoned with garlic or soy sauce, but this recipe uses sweet chili sauce. This makes it a Southeast Asian style dish.

Until now, I used sweet chili sauce only for fresh spring rolls, but this recipe was more delicious than I expected. The key to its deliciousness is the addition of mayonnaise to reduce the sweetness.

“Sweet Chili Sauce” has an exquisite balance of sourness, spiciness and sweetness.
Sweet chili sauce is one of the essential sauces for Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. The ingredients are red pepper, sugar, vinegar, garlic and salt.
Please note that sweet chili sauce and the chili sauce used for seasoning Mexican food are completely different things.

The garnish is purple cabbage, carrots, paprika, and cucumber. This sauce goes well with vegetables too. If you have leftover sauce, we recommend dipping it with vegetables such as broccoli and potatoes.
