Salted Crispy Chicken 咸酥鸡

Recently feel so drain by my son's tantrum, people said terrible two, I say is terrible three!

A fast and simple dish from Mum's Favourite Dishes cookbook (妈妈暧心菜)I didn't snap photo for the dipping sauce I made, for the main dish only 3 ingredients needed, chicken, salt and lettuce. I like this dish, is a sure keeper for all busy mothers!

Recipe adapted from Mum's Favourite Dishes cookbook

1/2 chicken
1 stalk lettuce
1/2 tbsp salt

1. Chop chicken into chunks. Marinate with 1/2 tbsp of salt for 15 mins.
2. Arrange lettuce in a plate.
3. Heat up 2 cups of oil, deep fry chicken over high heat till golden brown.
4. Remove and drain the chicken oil. Serve warm.


  1. My girl is the same, ever since she hit 2 she has become the monkey, bull and cat in the house.
    I hope it goes off soon, she'll be 3 this year end and I hope it goes off like how it suddenly came.
    Not easy, just bear with it and it will pass. Give him more encouragement but it sure does have limits.. I am with you, my dear.
