Since I was a little girl, I always like fried chicken. To be able to make one is another things however. Crispy fried chicken no less.  After I tried so many different recipes and so many different methods I think this one is my by far favourite. I like to share it with you guys my crispy fried chicken recipe.

Fried chicken


Choose the freshest chicken you possibly can.   I use a boneless chicken thighs in this recipe, but you can use a whole chicken if you like.  If I use a whole chicken I like to rub some salt and lemon juice and let it rest for about 5 minutes and then wash it with running water and pat it dry with paper towels.  Some people says don’t wash poultry, but I always wash my whole chicken.

Here is what you need to make delicious crispy fried chicken.

600 gr boneless chicken thighs. Season it with:

1 tablespoon coriander powder.

1 teaspoon of salt.

2 teaspoons black pepper powder.

1 teaspoon chili powder. (Skip it if you don’t like it or add more if you wanting more spicy.

1 tablespoon garlic powder.

1 tablespoon ginger powder.

Set aside in the fridge for two hours or more.  I left mine in the fridge for overnight. Next we will prepare the dipping batter and the dry coating.


Here is what we need for the dipping batter.

1/2  a cup of milk.

1/2 a cup of all purpose flour.

1/2 teaspoon salt.

1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder.

1 teaspoon baking soda.

1 whole egg.

Mix it together in a bowl and let it rest in the fridge while we prepare the dry coating.

Here is what we need for the dry coating.

600 gr all purposes flour.

2 teaspoons salt.

2 teaspoons black pepper powder.

2 teaspoons baking soda.

Sift it together and put it in a baking tray.  Double or triple sift it for better mixing.

Don’t forget the oil for deep frying it.

Now is the method:

I know it sounds a lot of work and seasonings for just fried chiken but the results will definitely will make you wanting more.

Heat up plenty of oil in a deep frying pan or like me just use one of the bigger saucepan in the kitchen.

Coat the chicken thighs in the dry coating flour (one at the time) then dipping it in the dipping batter and back to the dry coating flour again. Set it in one side of the dry coating flour. Repeat the process while waiting the oil to get to the temperature.  I don’t measure it but you can tell when the oil is hot enough.

Depending how big your frying pan is, mine only big enough for two pieces. Do not put in too many because the baking soda will work it is magic and your flour coated chicken will grew bigger. Fry the chicken untill golden brown for about 7 minutes in a medium flame. You will get crispy golden chicken but still soft and juicy inside.

If you not sure about for how long you need to cook them you can just fry it for couple of minutes to get the crisps then bake it in the oven for 15 minutes at 160C.
