3 Pinoy-Style Fried Chicken Recipe
Unlike most fried chicken recipes, the Pinoy-style version doesn’t use any kind of breading or batter. Yet, this doesn’t take away the fact that this pritong manok is as crispy and as flavorful as its breaded counterparts. The secret probably lies in the condiments. This recipe, for example, uses Datu Puti Fish Sauce (Patis) and calamansi juice in the marinade, which the chicken soaks up when marinated overnight.
For the dip, nothing beats the sweet-savory-spicy combo of Jufran Banana Catsup, Worcestershire sauce, and Jufran Hot Sauce.
