I love brightly flavored foods. This chicken is moist, succulent, tangy w/ citrus, and crunchy. The recipe’s origin is Dominican but I added the ginger and whole wheat flour, which really improve the original version.


  1. 1Cube chicken (or, if using whole pieces, poke all over with a skewer or boning knife)
  2. 2Mix lemon juice through ginger, stir to dissolve salt, and pour over chicken.
  3. 3Cover and refrigerate 1-3 days, turning once a day.
  4. 4Remove from refrigerator; drain in collander.
  5. 5Combine flour through pepper in plastic container w/ lid.
  6. 6Shake well to mix.
  7. 7To the flour mixture add 1/4 of the chicken cubes or 1 whole piece of chicken.
  8. 8Shake well to coat, and set aside.
  9. 9In 370 degree oil, fry chicken cubes and dried sliced ginger a few minutes ’til firm to touch.
  10. 10For whole pieces, fry with ginger for about 10 minutes, turning a few times, then transfer to 350 degree oven til cooked through and juices run clear when a skewer or small knife tip is inserted into the middle of the piece.
  11. 11Drain chicken on newspaper or paper towels.
  12. 12Repeat with remaining chicken.
