Garlic Fried Chicken Recipe

Garlic Fried Chicken Recipe

Crispy, juicy, savory garlic fried chicken is finger-licking good, AND it's gluten-free.

6 Chicken Thigh (skin on & bone-in)
2.5 tbsp of Soy Sauce
2 tbsp of minced Garlic
1 tbsp of Garlic Powder
1 tsp of Black Pepper
3 tbsp of Chinese Cooking Wine (optional)

½ cup of Corn Starch
1 cup of Rice Flour
2 Eggs
⅓ cup of Soda Water (COLD)
2 tsp of Garlic Powder
1.5 tsp of Paprika
2 tsp of Chili Powder (optional)
1 tbsp of Chicken Powder (optional)
Salt & Pepper
  1. Optional: cut a slit along the bone of the chicken thigh to open up the chicken, this will help the chicken fry more evenly and the chicken to not curl up. 
  2. Marinate the chicken with soy sauce, minced garlic, garlic powder, black pepper, and Chinese cooking wine for at least 20 minutes or overnight. 
  3. To prepare the batter, mix corn starch, rice flour, eggs, garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, chicken powder, season with salt and pepper, and ice-cold soda water.
  4. Add in the chicken and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. 
  5. In a pan, add in oil (I am using grapeseed oil), and bring it to 150 C. Add the chicken legs into the oil and fry for 6-7 minutes. 
  6. Remove the chicken, increase the heat to 180 C and fry for another 2-3 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
