Have you ever been served a piece of fried chicken that was bigger than your face? You probably know this infamous piece of chicken to be a chicken chop.
What are chicken chops?
Chicken chops are a Taiwanese dish that saw a piece of chicken, usually, the breast, pounded until thin and then seasoned and fried like fried chicken. It's very similar to the European schnitzel but with a flavorful twist that is very Asian.
It's a crunchy and crispy chicken dish that was made even more delicious with an addictive spice seasoning that it gets right before it's served. The spice seasoning is aromatic as well as super tasty and this delivers a fried chicken experience that many loved at the time it was first introduced to the local market. The Pinoy's love for fried chicken is legendary and it's no wonder that this version of a fried chicken was well received. However, to get this amazing dish right, you needed to prepare it properly and then cook it right, too.
We have an easy recipe for you to try:
To make this chicken chop a guaranteed success, here are tips to keep in mind when making it:
- • Evenly pound the chicken. The more even the thickness the chicken is overall, the easier (and the faster) it will be to cook it.
- • Marinate it for the full four hours it states in the recipe. The longer it marinates, the more flavor it will absorb and the more flavorful it will be when cooked.
- • Give your cooked chicken chop an extra boost in flavor with one last sprinkle of five-spice powder and salt before serving.
