Crispy garlic with savoury and slightly sweet chicken pieces served over steamed rice, this recipe is going on my ‘to make again and again’ list. Making it was such a breeze too! Done in under 30 minutes, and we probably took 5 minutes to wipe the plate clean.
Don’t throw away the oil after frying the garlic. It’s great for stir-fries, and it’s already infused with the aromatic garlic! Good stuff I tell you! I used the remaining oil to cook another 3 dishes for that night.
I would have gladly added some chopped chilli padi to chicken if I didn’t have my 2 cheeky little girls to feed. But even without the chilli padi, it was an awesome dish!
