Since most people don’t know what chicken fry is, I’ll try to explain it. Essentially, chicken fry is fried chicken, which is a well-known dish in the Philippines. The usual method of preparation is to make the chicken pieces “dry”, which means that they’re boiled in water. They’re then “wet”, which basically means that they’re marinated in a sauce, and then “dry”, which means that they’re fried. Dry chicken is usually eaten with vinegar rice.

Chicken is a versatile meat that can be prepared in a variety of dishes, from soups to stews to curries, and it’s available year-round at many grocery stores. One of these dishes is the Spanish chicken fry, which is simply a fried chicken breast that is topped with a mixture of spices, herbs, and vegetables and cooked in a sealed saucepan until the meat is succulent and flavorful. The technique is simple but time-consuming, which is why many restaurants in Spain make these dishes on-site with frozen or grilled chicken breasts rather than using a whole chicken.

The chicken fry is one of the most loved and most popular dish in the Philippines. This dish is made of fried chicken or eggs served with rice and gravy.

My mother’s chicken fry is delicious as a side dish for biryani, with plain rice and dal, or as a beginning on its own. The chicken is cooked in a deep fryer. The chicken is then topped with onion, green chilies, mint, and coriander leaves, which are cooked in the same oil as the chicken (which I refer to as a flavoured or spiced oil) and provide a nice fragrance and flavor to the chicken fry.

  • 3 green chillies
  • 20 mint leaves
  • a few coriander leaves
  • a pinch of salt


    • Set aside all the veggies and herbs after rinsing them in water.
    • Chop the onions and green chilies and set them aside. Coriander leaves should be roughly chopped. Mint leaves should not be chopped.


    • Combine the yoghurt/curd, ginger and garlic paste, chili powder, turmeric powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly.
    • I used chicken chunks that were medium in size (leg and thigh pieces).
    • Refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight after adding the chicken pieces and mixing thoroughly.


    • 30 to 40 minutes before cooking, remove the chicken from the refrigerator.
    • Fill the kadai halfway with oil for deep frying. When the oil is heated, reduce the heat to medium and begin putting the chicken pieces in the oil one by one. In the kadai, do not overcrowd the chicken pieces.
    • To keep the chicken’s marinade from rubbing off, don’t flip it right away. Allow the chicken to simmer for 7–8 minutes, or until it becomes a light reddish color.
    • Cook for another 7 minutes after turning the chicken pieces.
    • Cook the chicken until it is well done. The chicken will develop a nice reddish or brownish color as it cooks.
    • Batch-fry the chicken pieces. Do not put everything in at once. Depending on the size of your vessel, add 2 to 3 chicken pieces at a time.
    • Place the chicken on a dish after it has finished cooking.

adornment (optional)

  • Add chopped onions to the same oil and sauté until soft and translucent. Green chilies, mint, and coriander leaves should be added at this point. It will sputter, but keep cooking for another 1 to 2 minutes before turning off the heat.
  • Place it on a dish and season with a touch of salt.
  • Add fried onions, green chilies, mint, and coriander leaves to the chicken before serving.
  • Serve with pulao, biryani, or plain rice as a side dish.
  • Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice as a beginning.


  • Chicken fry may be made using boneless chunks, but I like to use bone-in chicken.
  • After removing the chicken pieces from the fridge, do not combine or massage them again.
  • Lemon juice or vinegar, plain flour (2 tsp), and food coloring may all be added (biryani colour).
  • After frying, the oil in the kadai may be drained and utilized for pulao and other chicken recipes, as well as frying. If you don’t use it within 2 or 3 days, toss it out.
  • Cook the chicken over a medium heat. The components should not be moved often during cooking.


Chicken is a popular choice for a quick and easy meal, but few people give it enough thought when they’re preparing it—which is why it’s important to use a deep pan or a heavy skillet. This not only helps your chicken cook quickly, but also ensures that the entire piece of chicken is evenly cooked, so that it’s not dry and overcooked in one area while under cooked in another..
