Crispy Fried Chicken Thighs

Crispy Fried Chicken Thighs

Even though it's this simple, the crispy skin is delicious.
Pack in your bento as a sandwich filling the next day.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken thighs
2 (500 g)
1 teaspoon
Black pepper
to taste


1. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken thighs. For an even slab of meat, cut off the excess.
2. Heat a little vegetable oil in a frying pan (if using a Teflon pan, you don't need any). On low-medium heat, cook the chicken from Step 1 with the skin side down. It's OK if the pan isn't hot yet.
3. Place a plate over the chicken and put a 2 liter kettle (or something similar) on top and cook for 6-7 minutes.
4. Check to see if the chicken has browned, then turn the pieces over. Pat excess oil with paper towels. Saute the chicken on the other side for 2-3 minutes until the meat becomes plump.
5. Once the chicken has finished cooking, cut into bite-sized pieces and serve on a plate.
6. This shows the chicken as a sandwich filling.
