This one includes a delicious batter with moist chicken inside which is served with equally yummy and lemon flavored fried rice. You can either use chicken legs or breasts for this recipe. Addition of seasonal vegetables in the fried rice can enhance the overall texture. One can also squeeze some lime juice on top of fried chicken before serving it. The spicy version of the same recipe can be made by adding some red chili flakes in the batter. If you do not prefer rice with this chicken, serve it with creamy mint dip or reduction. So be ready to cook this crispy, tangy and mouth watering chicken recipe for your family.
