Fried Chicken also referred to as the Southern fried chicken is a dish that is made out of seasoned chicken that has been floured or battered then deep fried or pressure fried. The beginning of this dish is attributed to fritters due to its similarity in preparation and cooking. That method had existed in Europe since the Middle Ages.


  • 1 kg Chicken nibbles, Legs or Thighs
  • 1/3 cup fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • oil


  1. In a bowl mix thoroughly eggs and fish sauce.
  2. Add chicken in the egg mixture and pierce chicken pieces with fork. Cover the bowl and marinate it for at least 6 hrs.
  3. In a bowl with cover, mix flour, cornstarch, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and salt.
  4. Add the chicken 1 piece at a time and cover the bowl, then shake. This will cover the chicken with the flour mixture.
  5. Heat up oil in a pressure cooker or any heavy pot with a good heavy lid.
  6. Once the oil is hot bring down the heat to medium and add chicken pieces one at a time. Cover the pot and let it deep fry for 8-12 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken meat.
  7. Serve hot with chicken gravy or tomato ketchup.


Don’t attempt to try this at home if you are using a pressure cooker and haven’t read the manual and understand what your pressure cooker can do, it can be dangerous pressure frying it in a non commercial pressure fryer.
