Hawaiian Garlic Chicken
Cuisine: Hawaiian
  • Garlic Sauce
  • 1 cup Aloha shoyu, or light soy sauce
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup garlic, chopped
  • ¼ cup green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon chili flakes or sriracha
  • Chicken & Coating
  • 1½ pounds boneless chicken thighs, cut into pieces
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper
  1. In a medium pot, combine sauce ingredients and bring to a boil, then simmer until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and set aside. Taste garlic sauce and adjust ingredients to you liking.
  2. Mix together flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper.
  3. Marinade a little garlic sauce with chicken. Then coat in flour mixture.
  4. Deep fry chicken until cooked through.
  5. Shake off excess oil and immediately dip chicken in sauce and place on serving platter.
I like to soak cooked chicken in garlic sauce for a minute, just a personal preference or you can coat it quickly. Enjoy!
