|The skin is crispy and meat is juicy!|
|I marinate the meat overnight. The flavor penetrated deep into the meat. I normally don't eat chicken breast, but this piece is so tasty. A good way to use up the tasteless chicken breast that is less popular here :)|
Shrimp paste aka prawn paste chicken was introduced by hubby in a not so healthy way, he packed the fried prawn paste chicken for my supper. Deep fried with oil, loaded with oil but I really love the flavor! 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.
400g Chicken with skin
(chicken winglets are tastiest but I normally buy whole Kampong chicken. So I just use any parts that is available, cut into chunks)
1 tbsp Shrimp paste
1 tbsp Oyster Sauce
1 tsp Cooking Wine (Shao Xing)
Some White Pepper
1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
Some Corn Flour for coating
(the picture shown in this blog used flour because I ran out of corn flour, previously I used corn flour for this, it's more crispy)
Cooking Spray or cooking oil

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 on a lightly greased baking rack. Leave it to room temperature about 30 minutes.
|I do it this way... I placed a pizza tray on a larger baking tray. A mess-free method! :)|
