Sa Kusina ni Aling Kuracha - Chili Chicken

Since I needed food to think, I dashed right away in my little nook and tried to prepare my own version of Chili Chicken. I so wanted to eat in BonChon to taste their famous Korean style chicken wings but the place is inaccessible. So I just decided to experiment and make use of whatever ingredients I have in my fridge.

If you wanna try the home made version of chili chicken, you can check below:

Warning: I don't use measuring cups or tablespoons because I am a master of my own "tantyahan" method! hehehe!


1 whole chicken, chopped in desirable size
cornstarch or all purpose flour
barbecue powder (I used the one I bought from SM Hypermarket)
cooking oil
chili powder
salt to taste
soy sauce
catsup (hot flavor)

1) Chop the chicken into desired sizes, wash then let them dry for a few minutes.
2) Heat the cooking oil in the pan. While waiting for the oil to get hot, prepare the chicken coating. Mix together the all purpose flour/cornstarch, barbecue powder, chili powder, and salt.
3) Coat each of the chicken pieces and deep fry.
4) Set aside the fried chicken and heat another pan. Saute the chopped garlic until brown. Add water, catsup, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and put into boil.
5) Get the coating leftover and dissolve in cold water. Add to the boiling mixture and stir until the sauce becomes thick.
6) Put the fried chicken into the sauce. Make sure that every piece is covered with the sauce.

Voila! You'll have a very simple dish yet a very delectable one. Hindi ka lang mapapafinger-licking good kundi mapapa-sarap to the bones pa! :)
