Malaysian Lemongrass fried chicken

IMG_5919 1


I was not too sure what is the best name shall i given to this fried chicken recipe. At last, I decided to call it as Malaysian Lemongrass fried chicken since I use all local herbs especially lemongrass and fresh turmeric are very common in Malaysia. This is my best deep fried chicken recipe, I like to serve this fried chicken in a party (in my son Lucas's 10th Birthday party), and my kids very often requested me to make this fried chicken for them.












This fried chicken is crispy and succulent, there is a secret tip that taught by my mom, add some water when coat with rice flour.

OMG, these fried chicken wings look so so so yummy! I prefer this type of fried chicken than those floured crispy skin type.

Coincidently I am craving for fried chicken today (was looking for fried chicken during lunch time).

BTW, I think yours look like Ikea's famous fried chicken wings.

Tried this lemongrass fried chicken, I think I made a mistake the Seasonings should be added to the chicken instead of the lemongrass. End up I sprinkle salt on the coated flour chicken.
Fragrant chicken and i will try again.
Tks

I am cooking this for dinner. Hopefully my fried chicken will turn up as well as yours. I am not good at deep frying food. Looking forward to my dinner tonite. Thanks for the recipe. :o)

Hi, must say the pictures of the fried wings looked really tempting and have actually bookmarked it for ref some time back. Saw your CNY potluck pics and decided to marinate 2 chicken thighs but choose to grill it for a healthier choice. Somehow, mine turned out lacking the lemongrass fragrant, but was tasty.. Something gone wrong? I hv some leftover marinates, any suggestions of what I can use it for?

I agree that the lemongrass flavor did not come through for me too. And I found the batter lacking in flavor and was a little too sweet. =(
