Restaurant Style Fried Chicken

We had yummy Sunday lunch today courtesy of the husband. What did we have? Crispy home-cooked fried chicken.

I remember when I was a child, my mom prepared fried chicken too but the breading was never crispy. Often it would be soggy by the time it reaches the table, still yummy but somehow she just couldn’t duplicate the way restaurants prepare their fried chicken.

Thankfully, there are a lot of commercial products available now with this purpose in mind. Hubby was able to find a Restaurant Style Fried Chicken Mix by Del Monte. It's one chicken recipe that's very easy to follow. One pack is good for ½ kilos of chicken. It contains four packages inside:

• A marinade mix
• A batter mix
• A breading mix
• Gravy mix

The crispy fried chicken was done in 4 steps:

1. Dissolve marinade in 1/3 cup water. Marinate chicken for an hour, turning occasionally.

2. Dissolve batter mix in ¼ cup water.

3. Dip marinated chicken in batter then coat with breading. Deep fry in hot oil for 12-14 minutes then drain excess oil.

4. Dissolve gravy mix in1 cup water until free from lumps. Bring to a boil then simmer for another 3 minutes, constantly stirring. Serve with fried chicken.

We all loved our home-cooked feast as seen here: notice the little girl's wide smile. We also had pork and mushroom soup and some baked potatoes to go with our crispy fried chicken.

I think we are both making each other hungry with our blogs! That looks really good. I can try the recipe out on my hubby when he's here. :) If there's one thing I miss it's Filipino food!

I love Del Monte Restaurant Style Fried Chicken. Since I discovered it years ago, it's always been part of our groceries for the times I just want to eat really really great tasting fried chicken that beats the Chicken Joy every time :)
