BBQ Sauce Fried Chicken


I opened the freezer the other day and realized that I have three containers of my homemade BBQ sauce. Not only were these taking up space, they were also depriving me of containers.

Then I remembered my ex-primary school classmate, K. Nor of Secubit Garam, posted a recipe using BBQ sauce. K. Nor's blog is a rich source of reference but my friend has since retired from blogging. I miss her pot pet (banter) but I can always visit her on FB.


There is a recipe for a special BBQ sauce in K. Nor's post (which she adapted from another blog) but since I already have my own, I will keep that BBQ sauce recipe for another time.

The chicken pieces are simply marinated with light soya sauce, Maggi seasoning, black pepper, egg yolks (I used one whole egg) and some cornflour. 

Then you fry the marinated chicken. I did not deep fry the chicken, instead I shallow fried it.

Ler ni minyak mahal, so kaedah deep frying tak main.

I actually dreaded the thought of frying the chicken but hey, this time it seemed like a breeze. Maybe I was in a good mood. The chicken was very crispy. This marinade is pretty good.

Kalau ikut perasaan, nak ratah gitu jer.

Then the next step is to saute some garlic, onions and then throw in the chicken and pour in the BBQ sauce. Then toss the whole lot to coat. 


The result? Spectacular. If your BBQ sauce is good, you are sure to score on this dish. 


I could not stop eating the chicken and had to stop myself before I devoured half of the platter hee..hee..

  2. That looks good. Corn flour is fine, my girl does not have a problem with that. The Chinese places here, most will use wheat flour to deep fry everything so we are staying away from those these days.

    1. Most of the time I prefer to use cornflour because it seems "lighter".

  3. Hi, your BBQ fried chicken looks really tempting and good. These days, I love adding black pepper to meat dishes, extra fragrance and nice aroma. I'm waiting for your home-made BBQ sauce.

  5. When I looked at the dish, I thought it looked rather similar to sweet & sour chicken. Haha, is there actually a difference between deep frying and shallow frying? The latter (to me) means you have to turn the chicken just once (to fry the other side) as opposed to submerging the whole piece in oil. I prefer this way as I can use less oil...I even shallow fry my wantans...kekeke! ;)

    1. Yes, it does look like sweet and sour chicken. Well, deep or shallow, the difference is we save oil hah..hah... some people say shallow is better because the exposed part cools down and when you turn it into the oil again, you get the double frying effect.

  6. This is interesting to know that we could make our own barbeque sauce!! It sounds easy too. The ones sold outside are not cheap.
    I love your photo complete with Bunga Raya!!

  15. Looks good but I don't think you can eat the whole plate in one seating. Does it keep well? Did you finish the whole plate in one day or keep some in the fridge for another day?
