Crispy Fried Chicken

Hi my dear friends..I'm back! Well, almost back. Thank you for your good wishes.  My house reno is almost complete except for the kitchen cabinets which will be ready in a couple of weeks time.  Have been busy with all the dusting, wiping, cleaning, mopping and washing almost everyday.  However, with my recent discomfort on my lower back, I left all the cleaning and what not to my hubby...

I still can't cook and bake at the moment but not for long, I tell ya.  Once my kitchen is operational again, I shall be concocting new recipes and if it's good, I shall share it with you!

Ok..anyway, here's a recipe that I want to share with all.  A very easy and my very own batter for a crispy and tasty fried chicken.  I did this before the reno started and since now I've some time to spare, I thought I share this with you especially for my Muslim friends who may be looking for a good fried chicken recipe, please try this.

All you need is...

Chicken pieces (cut into big chunks - I quartered the chicken)
Marinade the chicken with some salt.

Batter: 
Self raising flour (i love to use this flour as it gives certain crispiness to any fried food) seasoned with white pepper, salt, 5-spice powder (lots of it).

1 egg - lightly beaten

Method:
1. Dip the chicken in egg wash, coat it with the seasoned flour.
2. Deep fry the chicken on slow to medium fire until it's cooked and golden in the outside.
3. Take it out and strain the oil and let cool.  Once cooled, chop it into bite sizes and serve.

and the result is...finger lickin good!  As easy as 1, 2, 3...:D


For variations, if you'd like this a little spicy, replace the 5 spice powder with some chili powder or curry powder.  You can even throw in the curry leaves for added oomph!

  7. Con la traduzione non sono riuscita a capire che tipo di farina hai usato! Per il resto deve essere molto gustoso!!
    Non vorrei essere nei tuoi panni né per la ristruturazione (ricordo da incubo!!) né per il mal di schiena (altro ricordo da incubo!!) Ma presto vedrai che tornerà tutto alla normalità! Auguri!

    1. Hi Elly, if you can't find self-raising flour, not to worry. just add a tablespoon or two of baking powder to normal cake flour. :)

  12. I am so horrible when it comes to fried foods. I think it's my fear of splashing oil that prevents me from frying chicken. Yours look so delicious, you're inspiring me to give it a try.
