M and I were craving for some grilled goodies. Unfortunately, purchasing an electric (or even charcoal) grill wasn't in our priority list since we moved to our own home. I knew I had to make something close to a home-grilled experience without using up too much electricity (via the oven).
My solution was to mimic the taste of a barbequed chicken only that it will be fried. The Korean BBQd Chicken I made before is far different from this one but surprisingly, M told me, "Parang Jollibee Chicken BBQ lang!" (This tastes like Jollibee's Chicken BBQ.) haha! I enjoyed eating my portion knowing M and our son W enjoyed the meal more. =)

Fried Chicken BBQ
1/2kg chicken wings, cut into two disposing the wing tip (but you can use any part)4 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
How I did it:
I washed and dried the chicken wings, cut each into two parts and disposed of the wing tip. I rubbed the wing parts with the salt and cayenne pepper mixture.
In a bowl, I mixed together the ingredients for the marinade - the water, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce.
I marinated the chicken pieces overnight (but marinating for at least 30minutes will do - only that overnight marinating will render better taste).
I heated oil enough to cover the chicken pieces in a frying pan and deep-fried the wings. I skimmed off the excess marinade from the oil to avoid very dark/or black spots on the chicken.
Best when served and consumed right away.

I found a similar recipe online only that the chicken is baked instead of fried and there were also additional ingredients. Just the same, this chicken recipe produced results even better than Jollibee's --- or so M says. hahaha! =)
Prepare your fingers to get dirty and sticky! Happy eating! =)
