Japan Chicken Recipe

Although we enjoy cooking chicken recipes , we do feel bored making the same old grills and soups. This is a brand-new recipe that chicken lovers would adore. As you come across the name, to your surprise this food is nowhere connected to Japan. This dish is based on fried chicken cooked in a creamy white cashew milk sauce with loads of flavors of garlic and pepper.

It was once a trending recipe in India. So I  decided to give this dish a shot, and I must say that it turned out fantastic. So I wanted to share it with you all .

What is Japan Chicken basically?

As I said before, Japan chicken has nothing to do with Japanese cuisine . This recipe has an interesting birth story. It was a recreational recipe of chicken curry for a Japanese customer who visited Erode, a small city in the Southern part of India . The Japanese client requested chicken with a moderate flavor because they are unable to tolerate spicy food. Later on, this recipe went viral in that place.

Japan chicken is a simple on the go chicken recipe.it is quick to create at home and  simple to follow. The preparation for this dish is really familiar because it has many similar ingredients like malai chicken or mac n cheese chicken. You can enjoy it as a snack or accompany with vegetable sushi to bring out Japanese feel of meal platter !! .
