Crispy Fried Chicken Recipe


Crispy fried chicken is a standard dish in the Cantonese cuisine of southern China and Hong Kong.[1] The chicken is fried in such a way that the skin is extremely crunchy, but the white meat is relatively soft.

 I grew up eating fried chicken, this is one of my favorite food! It always makes me excited maybe because I don't ate it as often when I was little kid. I missed those days!!! I missed the chicken served at Jollibee-- popular fast food chain in the Philippines and some places here in the US. So, when cravings strike I decided to make my own version. How hard could it be to fry chicken? It's not that hard at all especially if your using deep fryer it makes the whole cooking process 10x faster, No deep fryer? worry no more a big pot and oil still as god as deep fryer. So, I was watching this cooking show (Food-network) and I found out that cornstarch is the key ingredients to make the fried chicken extra crispy.. Yay! you heard it right, I did tried it and it always work... This is like so perfect if your also missing the cripsy chicken served at Jollibee.. My kiddies loved them..!This is also perfect for like birthday party, family gathering and potluck party. C'mon try it at home. Below is the recipe:)
Hang out on my kitchen...:)

 Ingredients:


Chicken- I used (4) bone-in chicken breast
1 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup cornstarch
1 egg
1 Lemon
Salt and Pepper- to taste
Seasoning of your choice- optional
Chicken Gravy for sauce- optional
Oil - for frying

Directions:
1.) Marinate the chicken with salt, pepper and lemon. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
2.) In large pan, heat 2 cups of oil or enough to cover the chicken when your frying. In this recipe I used deep fryer:)
4.) Meanwhile, In large bowl combine the flour, cornstarch and salt and pepper. In medium size bowl beat the egg and set aside;
5.)Take the marinated chicken one at a time, soak in egg mixture then in the flour mixture, make sure that you covered the whole part of the chicken the shake the chicken for some excess flour. Do it again until everything is done and ready for frying.
6.) Fry the chicken until golden brown 8-10 minutes for white meat and 13-15 minutes for dark meat.
7.) Serve hot with chicken gravy and rice. Enjoy!

Notes:
- You can used combination of dark meat and white meat for this recipe.
-  The bigger the meat; the longer the cooking process, make sure that the chicken is cook properly before eating.
- Taste according to your preference and used your favorite seasoning.

  7. Oh would love to try this! I noticed you used chicken breasts. How did you keep the meat moist and soft. Sometimes kasi it gets dry di ba?

    1. Over night marinate, and try not to over cook the chicken. I would say 8-10 minutes on the fryer is enough to get that moist and soft meat. Thank you, Marie:)

  16. I am extremely impressed with the results I got using the Oil-less air fryer from Bizarkdeal! I was not sure what to expect to be honest as I was skeptical of how this would actually work. To my surprise, it works amazingly!! It fried my chicken to be crispy and moist as if I fried it in a pan of oil except without the use of ANY oil! Never knew this was possible and glad that I found this and decided to try it out. Excited to try many different types of food with it!
