Scott®, one of Malaysia’s most trusted household brands, is proud to introduce the brand-new Scott® Calorie Light, a first-of-its-kind kitchen towel designed for superior oil absorbency and proven to reduce calorie intake! Thanks to Brian, for giving me this opportunity to join in this challenge to prepare my own Fried Chicken Recipe. This brand is trusted and even my parents in law use it all the time. I taken my mum in law advise on how to prepare a " Nam Yu ( red beancurd) Fried Chicken. Firstly, i bought a whole chicken with additional chicken wings and small chicken drumstick. This portion can share among 7-8 persons. After washing all the chicken, we need to marinate it one day before and keep in the freezer. 

Here are the ingredients needed:

Chicken wing and chicken drumsticks
2 garlic
8 pieces of small onions
1 pieces of ginger
4 pieces of nam yu
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tbsp of flour
2 tbsp of chinese wine
Sesame Oil

  1. Cutting all the onions, garlic and ginger ( peel of the skin and wash). Make it smaller pieces and  using the traditional Lesung Batu (mortar and pestle). Old fashion way, but this is still my best choice for a greater result compare to the blender. I will mashed slowly combination of the onions, ginger and garlic. Then i will squeeze the juice into the chicken. 
  2. At the same time, i will put in nam yu, sugar, sesame oil , flour , pepper and mixed mashed all the ingredients with the chicken by using my both hands . This will make the flavour absorb better and on going chopping the remaining onions and ginger and squeeze it all around. 
  3. After that, i will put all the chopped mixture and again ensure the chicken pieces is well coated with the paste. Marinate for at least 24 hours and keep in the freezer.

Squeeze it all around

The remaining of the ingredients can now mixed together

Put in a container and keep in freezer.

So we are ready for the fried chicken. Firstly need to take 3 pieces of Scott Tissue to cover up my serving tray to absorb the oil.

Preparation is ready and now we can heat up the oil. Put in the flour and coated well for all the chicken pieces.

  1. Heat the oil in a wok for about 5 minutes. To test whether the oil is hot enough, put a chopstick into the oil. If the oil bubbles, it is ready. You can then put chicken into the oil to fry until it turns golden brown. That should take about 5 – 10 minutes. The fire need to ensure is hot before putting in the chicken. After the wok is hot, we can lower down the fire and when putting in the chicken already, can level up the fire a little bit.
  2. Drain chicken on Scott towels before transferring on a service plate.

Keep an eye on the chicken texture. Turning around to ensure all parts are well cooked

Fresh Fried Chicken is ready..Aromatic and filled up with strong Nam Yu flavour
