4. Tori Karaage (Japan)
Sushi may be Japan’s best-seller but its succulent tori karaage doesn’t lag too far behind. Japanese fried chicken utilizes bold Asian flavors such as ginger, scallions, sake, and soy sauce. Probably because the Japanese love their bento boxes, tori karaage comes in bite-sized, boneless pieces and with a tangy honey mustard dip.
5. Korean Fried Chicken
Korean fried chicken was one of the recent food fads that took the US by storm. The crispy paper-thin skin, sweet and sticky glaze, and flavorful meat easily captivated American foodies. The glaze is a delectable marriage of sweet and spicy – a mix of garlic, ginger and gochujang. The distinctive texture of the skin is achieved by double frying in hot oil.
