Where To Buy Frozen Chicken Karaage

images (1).jpeg
I am looking for a place where to buy those lovely frozen Chicken Karaage that they have on other parts of the world. Something like the frozen Ajinomoto brand in the US or similar. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Don't know about frozen karaage but I've been meaning to hit up Poppa G's in Richmond Hill and pick up some boneless chicken wings.

Perhaps take these wings and rif it. Toss hot wings in some oil, Asian seasoning, raw minced garlic and ginger.

It's really easy to make:
- marinate chicken in soy sauce, ginger, and garlic
- coat with corn starch
- fry in a hot wok.

And it'll taste way, way better!
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

Easy yes. But

It's the deep frying that many ppl including me don't do much of. So they look for a shortcut of sorts.

This as well. Something I can put on an air fryer or deep fry easily when the cravings hit or a good game is on.

I went to this place yesterday around 5pm and it was closed even though hours are to 6pm. That's not a nice thing for a business to do IMO. If you set retail hours, adhere to them. Perhaps ppl need to call to check if they're open if they're going a bit out of the way.

The same thing happened to me about a month ago. It was a Friday and they were supposed to be open until 6pm. But nope, they were fully closed.

I would highly recommend calling them before going, to verify they are open.

Are they literally boneless wings? De-boned wings?

This is what is says

Authentic Boneless Wings
Our boneless wing is a REAL boneless wing! We carefully remove the bones from our drumettes and flats and give them a light coating of batter and deep fry them. Making for scrumptious morsels of delicious goodness in just 10 to 12 minutes in your oven at 425F/220C. Or for extra crispiness deep fry from frozen for 2-3 minutes in your fryer at 390F/200C. Product Info: Boneless Wings are fully cooked, vacuum sealed and frozen in 1 lb packages. Minimum order 3 packages

It'd be impressive if they could de-bone the tips!

Don't bother. I was driving by, thought why not, and picked up a lb of chicken tenders and a lb of boneless wings. The tenders are thin, to the point that it looks like a thin sheet of chicken in 2 layers of breading. They came out so dry that it felt like eating chicken jerky. Tried baking them instead, same results.

The boneless wings tasted like gelatinous thigh meat, in the same insipid breading as the chicken tenders.

They all went to the circular filing cabinet.

Haven't gone myself. Thanks for taking one for the team!

How did you cook them first time? Fried?

Guess l will stick with the only frozen wings I've ever bought which is the M&M Louisiana Hot wings.

Yes, deep fried as per instructions and then tried the oven. These are pre-cooked already. Don't want to turn this into a PoppaG bashing thread, but, they were bad.
