Marinate in Koji (Shio-Koji) is one of the best way to receive benefit from Koji. ( I believe )

When I eat this marinated in koji chicken karaage (Tatsuta age) first time,
I was so surprised how soft and yummy it was.

What you need to do is just marinate chicken in Shio-koji over night.
This one step makes so much difference of your Karaage or Tatsuta age!!
