Kara-Áge (KAH-rah AH-geh) is a classic Japanese cooking method that involves marinating chicken in soy sauce with ginger and seasonings, and then dusting it with a starch or flour before deep-frying. The result is a flavorful yet delicate coating—lighter than fried chicken or tempura—that forms a protective barrier, sealing in the juices of the chicken to keep it from becoming greasy.
