"I prefer to cook my chicken without skin, for health reasons. Avoid over soaking the salted veg. You still want that slight sour salty taste. It’s important not to over cook the curry after adding the thick coconut cream. The very moment the curry starts to simmer, remove from heat. Always salt any meat dish at the end to avoid tough meat" - Michael
Minimal time spent in the kitchen when hosting a dinner party is always a win. So I often fall back on recipes that requires more prep time then cooking time. You'll need an oven for this one! I love making this recipe because you usually only use one tray (minimal cleaning) and it does taste amazing!
The trick to make your fried chicken crispy is to ensure you clean and pat dry your chicken before you start the marinating process. This along with the combination of starch (in this case I am using corn flour), the dry spices (or dry rub which I am using some Indian curry powder and turmeric) and the wet marinate (ground onion, garlic and lemongrass). You are almost guaranteed a crispy, aromatic and beautifully golden brown crust/skin. The trick to make your chicken juicy on the inside is to make sure your oil is hot (at least 185c) and to place your chicken at a high heat for the first 3 - 5 minutes. Then, bring it down to about 165c (for the remaining of 5 - 6 minutes) so it cooks the inside without burning the chicken.
