Am here with another of my favorite recipe the golden fried chicken, which serves as a good starter. Obviously my readers would know that I love chicken, so I try making different versions to treat my taste buds. Since my hubby doesn't like chicken much I taste 75% of what I make, lucky me. At the same time I love my versions too, I take much care to make sure that the recipes taste good, because I don't like wasting food, this may be one of the reasons and another main reason would be we (house-wives) put our souls and hard work into making recipes (be it simple or complicated) and I don't want such hard work to end getting discarded in a dustbin. Coming to the recipe, starters with chicken are really easy, obviously tasty and comforting too. Did you know, Chicken is packed with loads of nutrients, high quality protein and strengthens immune system, yes its true. The recipe is so good, crispy, simple to make and worth trying. Just marinate the chicken, dip it in batter and fry it to get golden fried chicken. So simple right? Then lets see the required ingredients and preparation method.

Its so cloudy here and I could not shoot best pics of this recipe with proper lighting, It was so difficult to wait for the clouds to pass by and shoot clear pics. hope you'll adjust.

(For marinating chicken pieces)
1. Lemon - 1/2 (squeezed juice)
2. Garlic pods - 1 ( Finely chopped or crushed)
3. Pepper powder - 1/4 spoon
4. Salt - As per taste
- Dip the marinated chicken pieces in the batter and deep fry on low flame, until it turns golden brown and crispy.
TIP 1: Serve immediately or else the crispiness will go away. I you want to save it for serving later, then deep fry it once again just before serving to make it crispy.
TIP 2: Instead of chopped garlic you can add garlic paste also. Make your own versions by adding some extra spices if you wish.
TIP 3: Always fry the chicken pieces only after the oil heats up to avoid over absorption of oil.
Crispy golden fried chicken is now ready!! Serve as a starter or snack with sauce!! This will be a treat for chicken lovers!!
