Sour plum chicken



This crispy sour plum chicken dish is another family favourite and in this instance I've used boneless chicken leg.  Easy to prepare ~ just marinate the chicken with some seasoning, dip it in some cornflour to coat, deepfry, ladle on the sauce and is ready to be enjoyed.







This chicky dish is flavourful and is yummy served with a bowl of piping hot rice and some green salad.....very convenient to eat because there are no bones to pick!

    Yes, me too. Very rarely deepfry my food, too oily.

    Ann
    Majority of kids love anything deepfried.

    Once in a while ok. I hate to deepfry as I find it messy and afraid of it splattering. Surprisingly this didn't, maybe because I didn't use egg, therefore not so watery.

    Janine
    I too was surprised that it was so easy and most important not greasy.

    You can give it a try and use lemon juice as an alternative.

  9. Sounds really delicious and appetizing! Does the sour plum sauce comes in a jar? We have plum sauce but I am not sure if it is the same as sour plum sauce.

    The one I used is in a bottle. I'm sure you can use the plum sauce available in your area, it's just a matter of fine tuning the taste. Shouldn't be a hurdle for you!
