Actress Akiko Yada, 32, and actor Shigeki Hosokawa, 39, attend the "Cooking Karaage" (fried chicken) PR campaign launch event in Tokyo on Wednesday. The campaign, by Nihon Shokken, is being held to promote a new chicken product, Karaagetsukuri, which can be fried in just 30 seconds.

Japan has everything. Is it really too much to ask to have Mila Kunis, Halle Berry, and Derek Jeter advertize instant ramen?

Hosokawa looks funny!

His suit looks like it could shed water.

And the chicken is cooked in a vinyl bag. Yuck.

What makes you think it is cooked in that bag? Just a method to coat/marinate the chicken without getting your fingers dirty, very common here.

Either that or it could make a good ironing pad.

Nice dressing gown!!

Cooked in 30 seconds? But with a 30 min setup?

Somewhat besides the point perhaps but I do wonder what it's like to have ヤダ as your sirname...

I suspect 'fowl' play...

I always cook chicken in a suit.

Zenni:

It is the 30 seconds cooking time. So probably in the microwave. Maybe even in the vinyl "as is" into the microwave. And this tells me, I should avoid to eat it.

On the other hand, if it is just for marinating, then I am also wondering. I thought using a dish or a bowl for that purpose is normal. And if it is marinating, then how does this reduce frying time to 30 seconds?

Anyhow, the picture is nice and the white dress of Mrs. Yada does not yet show stains from cooking.

Flash-frying can take as little as 30 seconds(used worldwide).

Bowls for marinating, etc is messy look at any of the locally sold packages for crumbing, etc they all recommend the bag method(wastes most of the stuff, hence I don't use it).

They even use it on TV, insert stuff, meat and knead while in bag(for a time) than fry.

Myself will have to try once locally available.

The Chickenist?

I'll bet it's not as tasty as KFC.

Better get used to eating chicken. So far it's the only meat that's safe to eat.

Karaagetsukuri (から揚げ作り)is a package containing a marinade and powder to prep the chicken for frying in 30 seconds. No way you can cook the chicken in 30 seconds! Poor copy writing here.

That must have been a great course. Cooking in 30 secs??? I need to go there now. I hope they have tons of menus.

presto345: That is exactly what I said yet "someone" voted bad 4 times... hmmmm whats with that?

Japanese Tori is no longer a chicken by the time it is slaughtered for it's meat . In fact it's an old hen that no longer lays eggs. Most supermarkets that sell whole "Chicken" are stamped Halal and are imported . These imports are pumped with water so they all weigh the same 3kg or 4Kg. No such thing as a free range chicken can be bought so you are never going to get a succulent chicken supreme dinner here. So the only way, is to dress up the taste with Tara or buy a KFC .

Ko-ki Ko-ka or Cock a doodle do , to you

Gogogo, they are probably distracted by your avatar photo and miss the "good" button.

I love the variety of Japanese products when it comes to cooking. There are one million ways to eat from pretty much anything. And even if you are too bored to cook, there is always a bento waiting for you 5 minutes away in the conbini.

I'd hate to think what nutritional value those bentos have.

@keika1628 Well, I don't know where you live, but here in Tokushima, they have plenty of free-range chickens. One of the famous products of Tokushima is 阿波尾鶏 or Awa Odori. And there are other parts of Japan, too, like Fukuoka, who also raise similar chickens. So don't go generalizing there, OK?

Kawachi, it's illegal everywhere in Japan to have free-range chickens. Since the outbreaks of bird flu (5 years ago ?), they must farm them inside. Not sure it's a great idea to get meat from those that cheat.

His hair looks like he has the same barber as Kim Jong Il...

Both promoting Japanese brand is a good collaboration and PR effectiveness. Convenience and less-time-consuming cooking preparation for working adults - men and women.

Only thread I've ever seen on JT where ALL comments (30 at this moment) are in negative ratings...some up to -6! Admittedly, “Cooking Karaage” is an extremely controversial topic (apparently), and all the posters here have made woeful points! Pick your game up people! LOL!

@kawachi I'm in Saitama and not a juicy chicken to be found in the supermarkets here. Great you can find a free range chick where you are , Enjoy and a thumbs up . BTW I tried a couple of thumbs up and down on the usual suspects just for fun and they sometimes give a double or a treble , anyway here's another thumbs up for talking to me .

False advertising, cooking involved preparation.
