This is one chicken recipe that is worth the wait. The flour mixture coating gives it a very interesting texture. And you definitely can’t go wrong with fried marinated chicken. This time, it’s chicken-fried chicken with cream gravy. Yum!


  • 4 pcs boneless chicken
  • 2 tsp ginger powder
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 cups full cream milk
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pc eggs
  • 5 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 pcs garlic
  • 1 pc onions
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tsp chilli powder


  • Firstly prepare the buttermilk by mixing 1 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon vinegar and allow to stand until the milk and cream separate.
  • While the buttermilk is left to stand, chop the onions and mince the fresh garlic. Ensure the chicken is boneless and skinless and each weighs about 230 g.
  • In a large bowl, combine the garlic powder, 2 tablespoons of black pepper, ginger, paprika and ½ tablespoon of chilli, mix then set aside. Sandwich each of the chicken between two plastic wraps and pound with a meat pounder.
  • In another large bowl, mix the egg, buttermilk, 1 tablespoon of the spice mixture together. Add the chicken and mix to coat. Transfer the chicken mixture to a gallon-sized zipper-lock freezer bag and refrigerate for about 4 hours or overnight turning occasionally to ensure the content coats evenly.
  • To make the gravy, heat 2 tablespoons of butter in thick bottom non-stick frying pan over medium heat until foamy. Add the chopped onions and cook for about 4 minutes. Lower the heat and add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of flour and stir constantly for about a minute. Add 1 cup of milk and whisk constantly, add ¾ cup of whipping cream and continue to whisk for about 3 minutes until thickened. Season with salt and black pepper as desired. Keep warm.
  • Combine 2 cups of flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons of salt and the remaining spice mixture in a large bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of the marinade in the zipper-lock bag and mix thoroughly with fingertips. Remove the entire chicken from the bag and toss in the flour mixture. Ensure it is well coated then place on a large plate.
  • Heat about 4 cups of butter over medium heat in a non-stick frying pan, add the chicken and fry, flipping it over continuously. Continue this process until the chicken turns golden brown.
  • Transfer the chicken to a towel-lined plate to drain for about 30 seconds.

Serve with the cream gravy. Yum!
