whole chicken, cut into pieces
This recipe is also good prepared with boneless chicken breasts, marinated overnight and then broiled.
I wasn't impressed, but my husband loved it.
This is one of the most delicious chicken recipes I've tasted! I used curry powder instead of curry paste, and added some rice and a little more salt to make it a main course meal. Very nice!
Delicious and easy. I followed recipe to the letter and it turned out great - only one word of advice - cook this on a day that you can keep windows open - I cooked it the day of NYC's blizzard this year - my house smelled of curry for five days since it was too cold to open the windows to air the house out! This recipe is a keeper though.
the weirdest thing is that i tasted none of the oyester sauce nor the curry powder...but the chicken itself is just great..so delicious!
I was looking for a chicken recipe that didn't have very many ingredients. This fit the bill! I marinated chicken thighs and drumsticks cut into quarters and halves respectively. I was concerned that the chicken might be bland and I marinated for 24 hours. It was wonderful! I fried as stated in the directions. I don't think this would be as moist and good with breast meat. I am rating it a 4 because I felt the marinate was missing some heat and a fresh zing. I will try again by adding some lemon juice, some finely chopped jalepeno, and maybe a little cilantro to the marinade.
Absolutely stunning! I was worried that it would turn out to be a dry dish, but the chicken was extremely succulent. I will be recommending this recipe to all my friends. Served with rice, it makes an excellent main course. This has become my new favourite recipe, and it is so, so simple to make!
We loved this tasty and unique fried chicken. The ingredients alone were unusual enough to tempt me to try to it. I and my family are happy I did.
