Crunchy Yogurt Chicken Recipe

My favourite food since young was Kentucky Fried Chicken, perhaps that is most of the children favourite food too. Given a choice, I would pick KFC over Mc Donald =P.

I was baking Warrior cake the other day and I still have some yogurt left over in the fridge. I personally don’t fancy or liking it, so I was thinking what can I make use of it. Out of curiosity, I decided to assemble my own yogurt panko chicken at home.

I went to Aeon and got some skinless drumstick home, skinless just because I wanna cut down the fats content. Feel free to use the skin-on drums for the recipe.

Adding in the Lingham Sriracha Chili Sauce for an extra kick for the yogurt marination. The mildly acidic in the yogurt is helpful in tenderising the meat and retain the moisture of it.

Coat the drumsticks with the marination for at least 4 hours in the fridge

I did double coating for the chickens. Coat with the marination, roll it in the panko mixture, coat with marination again, and then panko mixture again.

Deep drying the drums in a pot of hot oil for at least 15 minutes to 20 minutes.
