As you might have guessed by now, my children loves chicken drumettes and it's true especially for my son.

This Momofuku drumettes are very simple to prepare and it's extremely tasty. They can be served both as an appetizer or the main course.

Among the classic Japanese dish, tempura, broiled fish, etc, one of my favorite is chicken karaage - aka Japanese fried chicken. Japanese fried chicken is quite different from American fried chicken since we typically uses boneless piece of chicken. The chicken itself is well marinated and dipped in corn starch for a crispy flaky crust. If you haven't guessed by now, this is another one of my children's favorite.
