Now don’t we all love quick preparation of meals specially budget friendly using few ingredients.  So this recipe is a quick, easy method for a tasty chicken.  I first ate this dish at my friend Louella Braganza’s house.  Yes spent quite a few of my youth days with them and as close family friends relished each other’s company😋.  I was lucky to get the recipe and as luck would have it after getting friendly, with my husband we had gone out to eat.  So when we ordered this dish from the menu.  We enjoyed it and I immediately told hubby that I would prepare it for him the next time he came home.  

Sharing the same with you.


  • 1 kg chicken cut as required (skin on). I made 12-14 pieces. 
  • Salt 1 tsp
  • Pepper 1 tsp
  • Oil/Butter 2 tbs
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime


Wash the chicken nicely and prick all over with a fork.  Apply salt, pepper and lime juice and marinate the chicken overnight.

Next day in a pan heat oil and add the marinated chicken and fry well.  The salt and lime juice will help caramelize the chicken.  Turn and repeat the process on the other side.  When it starts to turn brown your chicken is ready.  Enjoy as a side dish with any Chinese main dish.
