This batter works on onion rings, fish, and more. For the chicken bites, try adding a pinch of powdered ginger to the batter. It tastes so good!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Chicken tempura is a classic take-out dish but is easy to make at home. The thick tempura crust is crunchy and holds in tender and juicy chicken. We served these chicken bites with sweet and sour sauce and fried rice for a delicious take-out at-home meal. When prepping, the chicken pieces should be on the smaller side to cook uniformly in the oil.

How To Make chicken bites tempura style

  • Dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
    Take a large mixing bowl and add all dry ingredients.
  • Water added until a thick batter forms.
    Then add the water. Mix until thick enough to coat the mixing utensil.

    I use a deep fryer or a frying pan with 1 to 2 inches of canola oil. Heat oil to 350 degrees.
  • Dipping bite-sized pieces of chicken in tempura batter.
    Cut chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Coat cubes of chicken in tempura batter.
  • Frying the pieces of chicken.
    Then take a fork, pick up chunks, and place 1 at a time into the fryer. Place in fryer until all have a nice golden brown appearance and are cooked through.
