Thai inspired fried chicken

unnamed (3)

I am not a big fan of meat, and specially chicken. But I would never say no fry chicken. This recipe is elevating the fry chicken with some Thai flavors and it was an absolute winner at home. It`s crunchy and juicy, but also packed with herbs and aromas. I like to serve it with fresh salad and sweet chili sauce.

Recipe inspired by Marion`s kitchen.


  • 1.5 kg drumsticks and chicken breasts
  • 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • handful coriander roots ( well washed)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 cup rice flour (it does give extra crunch but if you don`t have it use regular white flour instead)
  • 1 cup white flour
  • oil for frying


  1. Using a blender make the marinate for the chicken by combining garlic, coriander roots, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, salt and pepper and cumin. You should get nice aromatic paste
  2. Score the chicken meat slightly (helps the marinate to get in and also cook faster).
  3. Mix the chicken and marinate and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  4. In a small pan, preheat the oil (be generous)
  5. Dust each chicken bit in the flour mix and fry until golden (around 20 minutes)
