Belacan Fried Chicken

Happy Hari Raya Aidilfitri to our Muslim friends!
We have a treat for you should you be a fan of Belacan and it’s a really easy recipe. By marinating the chicken with belacan, it infuses so much flavor to the chicken that makes it so sedap and shiok when eaten. We also used a double fry technique to ensure more crispiness in the chicken.
For homes with air fryers, you can do this too, so give it a go and try it out for your party guests today!
