GARLIC FRIED CHICKEN RECIPE
1 kilogram chicken legs
2 tablespoons fish sauce (patis)
5 pieces calamansi, juiced
1 teaspoon pepper
salt, to taste
10 to 12 cloves garlic
2 cups cooking oil
1 Marinate chicken legs in fish sauce, pepper and calamansi juice for a few hours. Prick the chicken legs with a fork so the chicken will absorb the marinade.
2 Heat the oil in a frying pan and place the chicken with the skin side down and fry for about 5 minutes. Add the cloves of garlic and fry until golden brown.
3 Turn the chicken on the other side after 5 minutes and fry until chicken is cooked through. Remove the garlic from the pan once color turns golden brown and set aside.
4 Once cooked, remove chicken from the pan and place them on paper towels to absorb excess oil. To serve, transfer to a serving plate and top with the pan-fried garlic.
