Fried Chicken is one of the dishes introduced in the very first Cooking Mama.


Chicken fried golden-brown and served with fries and/or sauce.  It has become a soul food of Southern American cuisine, particularly within African-American culture.

However, the recipes made in the Cooking Mama series do not portray American fried chicken, but rather karaage, a Japanese cooking technique that marinades food in sauce, lightly coated in flour or potato starch, and then deep fried in oil. Chicken is usually used in making karaage, and in some veins, the techniques for making karaage are similar to tempura.
