Express Chicken Fry

Express Chicken Fry

I call this recipe Express Chicken Fry because it uses very few readily available ingredients. The preparation can be done in advance and it can be fried just before serving. You could serve it as a side dish with rice. You can also debone the cooked meat and make a sandwich with buttered slices of bread.

Serves: A Family of Four

Prep. Time: 10 Mins. + 1 hour (marination)

Cooking Time: 22 to 25 Mins.


  • Chicken (on the bone – medium pieces) – 500 gms.
  • Oil – 2 tbsp.
  • Marinade:
    • Limes – 2 medium
    • Ginger-Garlic Paste – 2 tsp.
    • Kashmiri Red Chilly Powder – 2 tsp. or to taste
    • Corriander Powder – ½ tsp.
    • Cumin Seed Powder – ¼ tsp.
    • Garam Masala Powder – a pinch
    • Turmeric Powder – a pinch
    • Stock Cube – ¼ of a small cube
    • Salt – 1 tsp.

Step 1:     Wash the chicken pieces and drain well. Pat dry with paper towels. Apply all the ingredients for the marinade and mix well. Allow to marinate for 1 hour to overnight (works best) in the refrigerator.

Step 4:     Open the pan. The chicken will have released its juices. Increase the heat to high and continue frying for 10 minutes. Stir in between. When the juices have dried up and the oil releases your chicken is ready to be served.
