Okey, I'm back again with my most favourite...Chicken of course! U knew I've got a soft corner for fried chickens right. Thus, I bookmarked this recipe straightaway after reading it! Another friend, Ika from Bangkok has also tried it.
This recipe belongs to a new found cyberfriend of mine, TUMMY from . Though I discovered their yummylicious blog just recently, glad I did it! Really interesting blog with variety of food with easy-to-follow step by step pictures. U'll surely drool if U are there. Don't ya believe me? Visit them...hihi...
Alright, we'll get into the recipe now. On how to prepare the drumlets, check out the steps images by Tummy. I didn't had an assistant to shoot the making.
- 1/2 kg of chicken drumlets
- 1/3 cup of panko breadcrumbs*
- 1/3 cup of coarse sweet potato flour* ( I used normal potato starch)
- 1 egg ~ beaten
- sweet chili sauce to serve ( I served with chili sauce and mayonnaise)
- mix ingredients marked *
- 1.5 tbsp of oyster sauce
- 1 tbsp of light soy
- 1 tsp of sesame oil
- 1 tsp of grated ginger
- 1 tsp of grated garlic
- dash of Chinese cooking wine ( x add)
- dash of white pepper
- a pinch of five spice powder
- a pinch of salt
- To prepare the chicken - first remove the excess fat, with a sharp knife cut around the thin end of the drumlet til the skin and sinewy bits are separated from the bone.
- Pull the meat down with the help of a knife and you will get a little chicken lollipop. Repeat with the rest of the drumlets.
- Marinate the chicken overnight or for at least 2 hours.
- Dip chicken in beaten egg then coat it with the panko and flour mixture. Repeat the rest.
- Deep fry in batches til golden and crispy.
- Serve immediately with some sweet chili sauce.
My kids enjoyed their boxing chicken. Managed to save 3 pcs for a photo shoot as they can't wait to lay their tiny hands on. I couldn't wait too...hahaha!
The chickens disappeared as soon as they're out from the wok! Seriously, I loved it too. Would give 2 thumbs up for Tummy...good job friend!
I fried them more darker and crispier...ooo la la!
