Best chicken

It's a challenge to compile all the top fried chicken recipes that have garnered praise in the group, but here are a couple that have captured the hearts (and taste buds) of many:

Clark Soriano's recipe boasts a flavorful brine consisting of salt, sugar, MSG, garlic, onions, carrots, celery, pepper, thyme and bay leaves. His dry breading is a blend of flour, cornstarch, rice flour, baking powder, garlic powder, paprika, sage powder, fine pepper and vanillin powder. The wet mixture includes water, egg and a portion of the dry breading.

Another netizen, Herson Franz Garin Ugale, which garnered almost 15,000 reactions from his recipe shared brining for 30 minutes with a mix of salt, pepper, garlic powder and lime juice. The dry coating consists of a blend of one cup of all-purpose flour, one tablespoon of starch, a pinch of salt, turmeric, pepper and paprika. For the wet mixture, two ice cubes are added. The cooking method involves frying for 10 minutes, five minutes on each side and double frying at maximum heat for two minutes each time.

For the members, the recipes don't just focus on creating the perfect fried chicken; they also delve into brining techniques, marinating tips, the importance of accurate heat temperatures, the quality of oil needed and many more.

Cebu’s chicken

Cebu, like many places, has a genuine appreciation for deep-fried food, especially chicken. Whether in a big city or a quiet province, you can always find a fried chicken cart ready to serve. Some of the beloved fried chicken joints in Cebu, such as Jerry’s, Carlito’s, Chef Pablo, Kara’s Fried Chicken and many others, offer delicious meals at very affordable prices.

Although the FB group mainly consists of people from Luzon, the recipes are freely shared, providing an opportunity for many Cebuanos to try them out and enhance their home cooking or fried chicken business ventures. This way, Cebuanos can deepen their knowledge or who knows, start another beloved chicken joint in the city.

This endless curiosity for fried chicken among enthusiasts in the group is evident. This “bayanihan” stands in stark contrast to the notion of crab mentality often associated with Filipinos. This time, a Filipino community has forged a different path. The members are coming together to empower each other's grassroots successes and this is what honestly matters most at the end of the day.
