Crispy Fried Thai Chicken
I had such a mad craving for some fried chicken the other day, so much so I had to make one of my favourites which is this Thai version I created a few years ago for a menu I wrote for a friends restaurant in London. I met my friend Sam, the restaurant owner, for a few beers a few months after he implemented my menu and he told he it was his best selling dish by far. To be honest I wasn’t very surprised because as far as fried chicken goes this is one of the best recipes I have ever created. The flavours are amazing, it’s like eating a spicy and crispy chicken wing only better as it’s all breast meat so you have no bones to deal with.
They make an ideal family meal as you can leave the kids plain if they prefer. They also go great if you have a few friends around for a few beers as they make the perfect finger food to scoff on while you enjoy the banter.
You can make these gluten free by using either gluten free flour or by using gram flour which is made from chickpeas and can be found in most supermarkets though I haven’t seen it in Aldi or Lidl. You can get gluten free soy sauce called Tamari, I have only seen it online and never cooked with it so can’t tell you if it is any good. I really must buy some and check it out someday soon.
As always please feel free to pm me on my Facebook Page if you need my help with one of my recipes or have any cooking related questions.
