Instructions Checklist

  • Add a few drops of red food coloring and mix so that chicken becomes tinted with red.

  • Heat 2 inches oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Lower chicken pieces carefully into the hot oil, working in batches, and fry, stirring frequently, until browned and no longer pink in the centers, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

This turned out well, very tasty. It wasn't spicy to us though. I would double the chili powder and add cayenne pepper next time. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
