Chicken tatsuta (チキン タツタ) is a Japanese-style fried chicken. Tatsuta indicates a way of cooking, which is a type of deep frying. After marinating meat/fish, sprinkle the meat with Japanese katakuri-ko (potato starch) before frying. Corn starch can be used if katakuriko is unavailable. Tatsuta dishes are cooked with pork or mackerel as well. They can also be served for lunch with bread as a kind of sandwich or bun.
