Chicharrones De Pollo (chicken Dominican-republic Style)

"Fast and easy fried chicken strips with a little twist! Marinate chicken in a tasty lime and soy sauce-based marinade with plenty of garlic, then flour up and fry! Be traditional and serve with brown beans and rice, or dish up a fine fried potato product. Prep time includes marinating."

4hrs 40mins




  • Combine marinade ingredients in a plastic zipper bag.
  • Add chicken strips and marinate in refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  • Combine flour, paprika, pepper and salt in another zipper bag.
  • Transfer chicken strips to flour mixture, coating evenly.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat and fry chicken in batches of 4 strips (don't overcrowd; oil will cool down too much during cooking), taking about 4 minutes per side to brown outside and thoroughly cook insides.
  • When done, transfer chicken strips to a plate lined with paper towels, and lightly sprinkle with salt.
  • Cook remaining batches of strips, keeping others warm in a low-temp oven.

  1. Thanks! I have a report on the Dominican Republic,so this recipe was helpful.
  2. I didn't love the flavor of these, but they were better with some Mojito. On the plus side my 2yo loved them and it's always good to have a recipe around that he will eat during his more picky times.
  3. I am dominican and I can tell you that here in the DR we do it not only with chicken breasts in strips but with the whole chicken in small pieces. You that the thighs and wings have more taste.... Also, fry them until VEERYYY crispy! Enjoy it!
  4. This got mixed reviews at our house. Half thought it lacked flavor, the other half enjoyed. I think next time I make this I will try it with smoked paprika to see if it will please the parties looking for more flavor. The marinade smelled fantastic and I let the chicken strips sit in it over night before flouring and frying. It went together fast and would be an excellent weeknight supper. We served it with pilaf, steamed broccoli and cole slaw.
  5. Great recipe Angie! As you already know my dd made this with her foods class.The teacher was impressed,and took the recipe home with her.I even got to sample them when she brought the left overs to me at work.I will definately be having this recipe at home! Thanks again...PJ
