DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE GHANAIAN FRIED CHICKEN

Wash and clean chicken and place in a saucepan.

Blend the Ginger, Onion, Garlic, Chilli and Stock together with a little amount of water and salt to taste. Mixture should be thick and loose but not too runny.

Add mixture to chicken and stir to cover meat fully. Marinade the Chicken for a minimum of an hour

Transfer the marinated Chicken and juice into a saucepan and steam on a medium heat for 10 minutes

Add the Grains of Selim and steam for another 10 minutes. Adjust salt when necessary and cook until chicken is tender but not too soft. Remove the Chicken pieces from the stock into a strainer.

Place a Wok or Saucepan on a medium heat and add the oil.

Heat the oil until hot. Then slowly add the cooked Chicken pieces. Fry the Chicken pieces till its browned.

Stir chicken occasionally to evenly cook them and avoid overcrowding the chicken when frying.

Once browned remove the Chicken from the oil into a strainer (to get rid of any excess oil).This gets the skins on the chicken slightly dry which results in the perfect crispy chicken skins.

Serve immediately with your Jollof rice or use it for a tomato stew to enjoy with Plantain, Kenkey, Banku, Yam etc.
