Chicken Fry : 5 Minutes of Work

I promised my wife I will cook some chicken before she left with my son. Then I felt very lazy and kept watching TV. Luckily the chicken was already on the counter and fully thawed. This recipe takes no more than 5 mins of actual work.

Don’t mind the awkwardly cut up pieces. I buy whole chickens and portion them at home. This is the back and wings. Cut to make cleaning easy and not aesthetically pleasing.

Chicken with skin is salted and kept in the freezer till I need it.

You need:

  • Chicken with skin
  • One onion
  • Three green chillies
  • Cumin
  • Turmeric
  • Butter
  • Vinegar

I will describe this recipe in the same sequence as I cooked it.

Heat a pan and place chicken, skin side down. Do not do anything to it for the next seven minutes.

Blend together an onion, green chillies, cumin and turmeric.

Turn the chicken over. The skin will be crispy and drop in the butter. About a tablespoon should do. Use it to deglaze the pan. Add the onion paste. Mix. Cover the pan. Lowest heat setting.

Go have a shower, iron your clothes, polish your shoes, save the world. Whatever. You have fifteen minutes.

By now the chicken is fully cooked, the onion has caramelized into an amazing sweetness. The butter would have made it a little rich. Cut that using any acid. I used balsamic vinegar, which explains the crazy color I got on the skin.

Enjoy your fast food.
