Super Crispy Fried Chicken

 

 

If there's any type of dish that the whole world is soooo familiar with, it's fried chicken! There are plenty versions allover the internet for that yumilicious fried chicken recipe. Your mom, your lola (grandmother), your sister, or your entire neighborhood probably has the claimed best recipe for it. However, for my version, this is a crispylicious fried chicken recipe with its chicken meat marinated to get that full flavor with every crispy bite. So I wouldn't say it's the best fried chicken recipe out there, but giving this version of recipe a try is a must if you want to up your fried-chicken-game. :)

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 kilo cut chicken
1 liter of cooking oil

1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 flour
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt

3. On a separate container, mix the cornstarch, flour, black pepper, and salt.
4. Whisk the egg in a bowl, then coat the marinated chicken meat to it.
5. Then transfer the egg coated chicken meat to the breading mixture. Make sure to thoroughly coat the chicken with the breading, and dust off any excess coating.

7. Fry again for another 10 minutes or until the chicken turns golden brown.
