Hawaiian Mochi Fried Chicken

Yields about 40 pieces


  • 2 pounds boned chicken
  • 1/2 cup mochiko flour (glutinous rice flour - available in Asian markets)
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 stalk of green onions, chopped fine
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced


Bone the chicken and cut into plump finger-size nuggets and set aside.

Combine the remaining ingredients and mix well. Add the chicken. Marinate overnight.

Deep-fry at 350 degrees, keeping the pieces from sticking together. Drain the nuggets of excess oil.

Serve mochi chicken as a main dish with fried rice, potato salad, or macaroni salad, as you would any other fried chicken. It is also great as an appetizer because it is a perfect finger food.

Suggested dipping sauces: pineapple or mustard sauce, hot mustard, or sweet and sour sauce.
