Malaysian fried chicken

    40 min

    This is my mother's special, yet simple, recipe. Chicken marinated in garlic, oyster sauce and curry powder, then pan fried.

    60 people made this

    Serves: 4 

    • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 4 tablespoons oyster sauce
    • 2 tablespoons curry powder
    • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
    • 100ml (4 fl oz) vegetable oil

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. To marinate: In a non-porous glass dish or bowl, combine the garlic, oyster sauce and curry powder. Mix together. Add chicken pieces and turn to coat. Cover dish or bowl and refrigerate to marinate for at least 1/2 an hour.
    2. In a large frying pan or wok, heat oil over medium high heat. Add marinated chicken (disposing of leftover marinade) and fry for 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is crispy and brown and juices run clear.
