DIRECTIONS

  • Place chicken in a large pot and cover with water.
  • Add onion, garlic, coriander, tumeric, salt and pepper and stir.
  • Allow to simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  • This process allows the chicken to absorb the spices.
  • In a frying pan or deep fryer, bring vegetable oil to 350ºF degrees.
  • Strain chicken from water and roll in flour.
  • When oil is hot, fry chicken pieces until golden brown and done.
  • Legs and thighs generally take about 15-20 minutes.
  • Breasts take 7-10 minutes for strips.
  • Cutlets, larger, thicker breast may take up to 15 minutes.
  • Serve with a salad, rice, and olives.
