Crispy Fried Chicken

Posted on 11.11.2015

There’s nothing more satisfying than watching your children savour their much-loved dishes. One of the most popular dishes with children is fried chicken but it has bad reputation for being unhealthy. Is it possible to enjoy fried chicken in a healthier way? Definitely!

Here are some tips on how to prepare a healthier version of fried chicken.

1.     Remove the skin.

You can remove the skin and not compromise on the taste. Just coat your chicken with flour and spices to make it crispier, tastier and healthier.

2.     Prepare a great marinate.

Marinate your chicken in ingredients like soy sauce, garlic or chilli powder for just 30 minutes or for a couple of hours (according to the recipe) to give it more flavour.

3.     Check the temperature.

Make sure the temperature of the oil is right; otherwise, the chicken is likely to soak up excess oil and turn out very greasy after it’s fried. A digital thermometer is a great investment for the kitchen.

4.     Use good oil.

The higher the smoke point of the oil, the better it is for frying chicken. Neutral-tasting oil such as canola, vegetable or peanut oil are the best choices.
