“Although this recipe says chicharron it taste more like southern fried chicken. But it is out of this world”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut chicken into chunks, if you purchase from a butcher have them cut it into chunks to save time and effort. You should get 10-16 pieces.
  2. Combine soy sauce, lemon juice, rum, minced garlic, ginger, and bay leaf in bowl or zipper bag, add chicken pieces, and let marinate at least 4 hours in refrigerator (overnight is best).
  3. Combine flour, oregano, sazon, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and pepper, and put on a plate or waxed paper for dredging.
  4. In an electric fryer, or on the stove in a deep skillet or pot, heat vegetable oil (to 375 degrees if you have a thermometer).
  5. Right before frying, dredge chicken 4-5 pieces at a time, and fry until crisp and golden brown. The time will depend on the size of the chicken.
  6. As you complete each batch, remove cooked pieces to a rack or paper towel lined plate to drain. Dredge and fry next batch.
