  • 1 whole chicken cut into pieces
  • oil for frying
  • 3 tbsp rock salt
  • 5 cups water
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp DRY instant chicken broth
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder

Step 1

Mix water and rock salt to make brine. Soak the chicken in it for about an hour in the fridge.


Step 2

Mix the breading ingredients. Sift to remove any lumps.


Step 3

Remove the chicken from the brine and rinse with water. Pat with some paper towel to remove extra moisture then dredge in coating mix.


Step 4

Deep fry in hot oil over medium high heat for about 15-20 minutes or until chicken is done. In this recipe I used some margarine and mixed it with the oil for richer taste.


Step 5

Take out of the oil when done and set aside.


Step 6

In the same pan, I remove the oil leaving just enough to use in making a rue out of the remaining breading mixture. Add some water or chicken stock and whisk until it boils and become thick. Adjust seasoning if needed.


Step 7

Serve while still hot!

Would you please post What brand of flour, etc… do you use (Picture #1)?  I have found that this makes a difference in the outcome. Thanks.

I like your recipes, nice little twists on the traditional.  Will give this one a go, and the Filipino bbq too.  Btw, that would be roux, not ‘rue’.
