Deep Fried Kampong Chicken – 甘榜炸鸡

Perfectly fried, golden brown with refreshing ginger chips. In this recipe, we used Kampong Chicken, which is less fatty and tougher. Marinated with Premium Oyster Sauce, this chicken dish is super juicy and moist in the middle while having the crispy texture on the outside! This is how we did it, DOUBLE FRY~ Frying at low heat to cook the meat through and refrying it at high heat to create the crispy exterior 🙂 This is definitely a perfect dish for sharing with friends & family, something you do not want to miss trying!

Until then, Stay Cookin~!
