Sounds weird, huh? But I promise you, it tastes really good. This recipe was invented to give fried chicken a Chinese flavor. Prep time includes the time the chicken is having its Chinese bath before frying.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the marinade ingredients with the chicken and set aside for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Dredge the pieces of chicken in the flour.
  4. Place a rack in a shallow baking pan and put the pan near the stove.
  5. Heat a large skillet and add the oil.
  6. When the oil is hot, fry the pieces of chicken on both sides until lightly browned, about 4 or 5 minutes.
  7. Arrange the chicken on the rack so they don't touch and bake for 45 minutes or until done.
  8. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Thanks, Mirj, for a great recipe. Left it in the oven until it was really crispy. The family really enjoyed it. Also, left it in the marinade for about 6 hours.
