Craving for some Chickenjoy now but you can’t get yours delivered or you couldn’t go to the grocery to get their frozen marinated chicken? Make some at home with the recipe by Marvin Roy Delminguez Vivo.
For the chicken:
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 3 tbsp. salted egg powder
For the gravy:
- 4 tbsp. butter
- 3/4 cup beef broth
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup water
- 3 tbsp of the breading mixture you’ll make for your chicken
For the chicken:
Before you begin to heat your oil, make sure you’ve thawed your chicken well. Once you’re sure it’s thawed, you may prepare your breading.
In a casserole pan or a large plate, combine flour, cornstarch, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and salted egg powder. In another bowl, prepare an egg and water mixture.
When you’re done preparing these two, take your chicken and first dip it in the egg mixture then the breading before frying.
Fry all of the chicken until the skin is golden brown.
For the gravy:
Drain the oil from the pan where you fried your chicken but leave the breading at the bottom of the pan.
In the same pan, on low heat, add the butter, the breading mixture you set aside, the beef broth, the water, and a pinch of pepper. Cook until it’s mixed well.
Burger Steak Supreme
A level up from the Jollibee’s burger steak, the burger steak supreme may have a lot of components but it’s one of the easiest to make and assemble. Don’t believe us? Try out this recipe by Fry Dino:
- Beef Patties
- Instant mushroom gravy
- French fries
- Sunny-Side Up Egg
- Fried garlic (optional)
In a deep-fryer or large saucepan, fry your french fries.
Meanwhile, in another pan, cook your meat patties until they’re cooked exactly the way you like it.
Once you’re done with the fries and the burger patties, you may cook your mushroom gravy, adding mushrooms for that extra mushroom flavor and for additional texture.
Finally, before assembly, fry a sunny side up egg in a pan.
To assemble, place a cup of rice on your plate. Then, surround your rice with french fries. Afterwards, top the french fries with the patties and mushroom gravy with mushrooms. As a final touch, you may now place your sunny side on top of the rice. If you want some crunch, you may fry garlic and garnish your beef patties with a sprinkle of the garlic.
