Golden Fried Chicken

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. I love my versions so 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. For my other successful starter recipes click here and here.

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.

1. Corn flour - 3 spoons
2. Rice flour - 4 spoons
3. Egg - 1 (Beaten)

(For marinating chicken pieces)

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.
