Nori Chicken is apparently the same as Mochiko Chicken added a strip of nori (dried seaweed). They added the strip of nori so that it would look like Kakimochi (or Arare, or Rice crackers), like this one. Don't they look alike??
1 lb chicken, cut up into small bite size pieces
1 tbs mochiko flour
1 tbs sugar
1 tbs cornstarch
1 tsp salt
2 tbs soy sauce
2 cloves garlic
green onions, diced (optional)
For nori wrapped chicken: 1 sheet of nori (dried seaweed), cut into strips
1) Combine all ingredients above and marinate chicken for at least 2 hours, over night is best.
2) (for nori wrapped chicken), wrap chicken with a piece of nori.
3) fry until golden brown.
In Hawaii, people like to eat popcorn with kakimochi, I LOVE IT! I was thinking, maybe one day I will do a movie theme bento, except it would be popcorn chicken with nori chicken, hotdog, then maybe some m&ms on the side? Would that be cool?!
