Garlic Fried Chicken Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram Chicken
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce (patis)
  • 5 pieces calamansi juiced
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 10 to 12 cloves Garlic
  • 2 cups cooking oil


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
