A marinade mixture of calamansi juice, soy sauce and minced garlic gives this fried chicken a touch of “pinoy” flavors and a dusting of corn starch and flour before deep-frying makes them crisp and golden for broad appeal. Delicious to the bone, this Filipino-style fried chicken goes well with steamed rice and yep, banana ketchup. Enjoy!
