Don’t really know what got into me, but suddenly the thought of deep fried garlic and salted chicken nibblets floating in my head sounds too good to resist. It started out from a harmless intention to make some deep fried chicken wings which I refrained, as it seemed too tedious to make from scratch on a Friday evening.
So, with an end goal of some simple nibbles in mind, I scoured the net for some deep fried garlic chicken recipe that don’t require too much effort or time. I found a few interesting ones, but decided to improvise on the recipe there and then. You gotta trust me that these are really so, so good for when you have the munchies:
Combine all the spices (except rice flour at this point) into a bowl and mix well
Add in the chicken pieces into the mixed spices and set aside for about half an hour to marinate
Heat up some oil when ready to fry.
Separately prepare the rice flour and dip in the marinated chicken (rice flour makes it crispy)
Make sure that the pan is super hot and fry the chicken pieces till golden brown and drain excess oil.
Sprinkle more salt if you wish

These nibblets are certainly good enough to be eaten on its own. However, being the typical Asian who just cannot live without chillies, these savouries definitely taste better when dipped in some chili sauce.
Just a word of warning though: These chicken nibblets are quite addictive! Proceed with caution.
