My version of the crispy fried chicken
January 14, 2012 27 Comments
To complement the chicken tinola, fried chicken is always a good choice. Expect the hubby and the in-laws to over-eat as simply this combination of dishes is just perfect especially on a chilly and rainy day.
This fried chicken is crispy and so full of flavor. The use of the citroen juice ensures that the flavors penetrate the chicken and not just on the outside as with most fried chicken.
My version of the fried chicken is easy and simple, the ingredients are few and very basic so that the flavors remain distinct.
1 kilo chicken thighs, cut in pieces
6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
6-8 tbsps. fish sauce
Black pepper, finely grounded
Juice from 1 citroen
1. Marinate the chicken for an hour or two in the following: fish sauce, lemon juice, finely chopped/pressed garlic, ground pepper.
2. Fry the chicken over medium heat until brown and crispy.
