Crispy Chicken Bites with Wasabi Mayonnaise

I am so excited to share with you something new and refreshing: my Asian-inspired Crispy Chicken Bites with Wasabi Mayonnaise. Ta-dah! Serve these irresistible hors d'oeuvres up at your next get-together, and they'll be begging for more.

Notes

*Note: You can also bake the chicken, if you prefer. Place the breaded chicken on a lightly oiled baking dish. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees until the chicken is golden brown and the liquid from the chicken runs clear, about 50-55 minutes. Slice them into bite-sized pieces.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoons five spice powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 tablespoons wasabi paste, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cucumbers, sliced into ¼-inch-thick discs

Directions

In a bowl, mix together the flour, cornstarch, and five spice powder. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Fill a large, cast-iron skillet about ½ full with cooking oil.

Place over medium heat until very hot; a pinch of flour dropped into the skillet should sizzle. Roll the chicken pieces into the breading and shake off excess flour. 

Drop the pieces into the hot oil; do not crowd. Deep-fry until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Drain the fried chicken and let rest until cool enough to handle. Cut into bite-sized pieces.* 

In a bowl, mix the wasabi paste with the mayonnaise. (Add more wasabi paste if you want a bolder kick.) Arrange the chicken slices on the cucumber and add a dollop of wasabi paste onto each piece.
