Yogurt Fried Chicken

Year after years, I am celebrating the Chinese New Year as simple as possible. This year I didn't even decorate my house or baking much. Saving me quite a bit though! I only did the cleaning job, rearranged everything and checked if there's any unused items to be giving away such as clothing and electrical equipment. The least stuffs I'm keeping the easier for me to do my job. haha.... Well, we don't expect our kids to do all this things for us every year. One day, they'll still have to leave..... aftering their dreams. Whateverso, they will never forget mom's cooking is the BEST ! :o)

And here's a little treat for them.

Ingredients :
3 whole chicken leg, cut into bite size
1/2 cup    yogurt
1/2 cup   milk
1/2 tbsp    sugar
1 tspn     paprika powder
1/2 cup     cornmeal
1/2 cup     all purpose flour
salt & pepper to taste
1 tspn  crushed black pepper

Method :
(1) marinade chicken with yogurt, milk, sugar, paprika, salt & pepper for 10 minutes.
(2) add in flour and cornmeal and mix well, then keep refrigerated for another 20mins.
(3) once it's ready, fry the marinated chicken meat till cooked & nicely brown.

The crust will easily turn brown when cooking with yogurt, so always be caution with that. And the use of cornmeal in deep frying simply delish. It gives you better crunch. Still it's best to use chicken wings or drumstick for this recipe. Hope you guys will love it too.

  7. Kristy you set the bar pretty high. I can just imagine how good that crunch will be when I bite into a piece!! Your boy's wife will have a lot to do keeping up with your cooking! Does your daughter cook a lot now? Or is mom's cooking just the best!! :)

  22. Hi Wen, thank you very much for visiting. You can replace cornmeal with semolina flour where you can easily get them from the Indian grocery store. Hope you will like it.
    Hope you're going to have a wonderful weekend & Chop Goh May!
    Blessings,
    Kristy
