okara chicken fingers

okara chicken fingers, leftover kinpira & hawaii-ish potato salad❤︎  #okara #chickenfingers #kinpira #potatosalad #osaka #japan #おから #きんぴら #ポテサラ #チキンストリップ #大阪 Was craving mochiko chicken, but wanted to use the dry okara that I have, so I marinated some chicken breast in the wet ingredients for mochiko chicken, then just before frying, I coated each piece with some dry okara.

I didn't deep fry, just pan fried, so am wondering if this may be the reason the outside didn't turn out crisp.

Still, it was a nice way to cut some carbs and soothe my mochiko chicken craving.

saw okara at the market while on Kauai...wish I could've brought some home!

wonder if you might be able to find dried okara online, Rowena, you can use it in place of flour or panko :)

Take care.

Interesting new addition Kat. I'm going to look around for some the next time I go shopping at Mitsuwa or Nijiya.
