Oven Baked Prawn Paste Chicken 烤虾酱鸡(免油炸)

Prawn paste chicken aka Har Cheong Gai was introduced by the hubby in a not so healthy way, he packed the prawn paste fried chicken for my supper. Deep fried with oil, loaded with oil but I really love the flavour! The only way to fulfill my craving but not consuming so much oil from deep fried is.... home cooked!

I have 2 healthier cooking and less oil method - oven baked and air fried. Both methods uses much lesser oil compared to deep fried. I personally preferred the air fried method because the cooking time is shorter and air-fry method helps to extract the oil from the chicken (those fat under the skin). For air fried method, click here for recipe. 

This was my first attempt back in year 2014.
Used chicken thigh, the skin is crispy and the meat is juicy! 


400g Chicken Wings or thighs/ drumstick with skin 鸡翅膀/鸡腿 400克

Seasoning: 腌料

1 tbsp Shrimp paste 虾酱 1汤匙

1 tbsp Oyster Sauce 蚝油 1汤匙

1/2 tbsp Shao Xing Hua Tiao Cooking Wine 绍兴花雕酒 1/2汤匙

Some White Pepper 胡椒粉 适量

1 tsp Sesame Oil 麻油 1小匙

1 heap tsp Corn Flour 玉米粉/粟粉 1小匙满


Some Corn Flour for coating 玉米粉/粟粉 适量

Cooking Spray or cooking oil 油 适量

1. Mix all seasoning in a bowl. 

2. Add chicken and mix well with hand. Do a little massage to the chicken. (I normally wear glove when handling raw meat and seasoning). Cover and let marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight for best flavor! 

3. Remove from fridge. Coat the chicken with corn flour. Place onto a lined baking tray. Let it sit for 30 minutes or until return to room temperature.

4. Spray some cooking spray all over (or brush with a thin layer of oil). Bake in a preheated oven 210'C for about 25 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Serve warm.
