How to Make Filipino-Style Fried Chicken
- In a bowl, combine calamansi juice, soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper. Add chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Drain chicken from marinade and let rest in room temperature for one hour.
- In a shallow dish, combine corn starch and flour. Dredge chicken in flour mixture to fully coat.
- In a wide, thick-bottomed pan over medium heat, heat about 2-inch deep of oil. Add chicken in batches and cook, turning on sides, until golden brown, crisp and cooked through. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.
