Ingredients

  • 1 large chicken cut into 8 pieces (with or without skin)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste
  • 2 tbsp garlic paste
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 3 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme optional
  • 1 tsp dried parsley optional
  • 1 cup self raising flour you can also use all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • salt to taste
  • oil for frying

Instructions

  • Prick the chicken pieces with fork.
  • Mix together olive oil, ginger paste, garlic paste, lemon juice, cinnamon powder, 2 tsp red chili flakes, black pepper powder, dried thyme, dried parsley and salt.
  • Marinate the chicken with the above spices for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl and set aside.
  • Mix the self raising flour, 1 tsp red chili flakes and salt in a large zip lock bag and mix well.
  • Dip one chicken piece at a time in the beaten egg. Transfer this chicken piece to the zip lock bag and seal it. Shake well till the chicken is well coated with the flour. (You can repeat the process for extra crispiness). Set the coated chicken pieces on a plate.
  • Fry it in hot oil till done. I time the frying part for the perfect cooking. I generally cook on high heat for 5 minutes and then medium heat for approximately 10 minutes. It gets cooked perfectly for me.
  • Your delicious Al Baik Chicken recipe is ready to serve with garlic or hot sauce.

Notes

Do not add all the chicken pieces together in the zip lock bag. Coat the chicken pieces one at a time.
Do not over crowd the frying oil, fry them in well spaced oil.
