Chicken is one of the most popular meats around due to how inexpensive it is (compared to other meats) and also how versatile it is. There are countless different ways to prepare and cook chicken, and you’ll be surprised at how different it can taste depending on how it’s cooked and seasoned. So in this brief post, we’re going to talk about some of the best ways to prepare chicken and why you should give them a try if you haven’t already.
Chicken-based curries come in many different forms, but they often involve lots of different spice blends to create a unique taste. For that reason, a chicken curry from India is entirely different from one from Japan. If you’re looking for a hearty and filling chicken-based curry, try this instant pot butter chicken recipe from Little Sunny Kitchen. It goes perfectly with some rice, it’s easy to make and you’ll be surprised at how authentic it tastes. It’s a fantastic way to eat chicken and since the highlight of the dish is usually the sauce, you can usually use frozen chicken for curries without hindering the taste or flavor.
Fried chicken doesn’t need an introduction. The crispy outside and juicy inside make for the perfect piece of fried chicken. Unfortunately, frying at home can be difficult and it’s typically a very unhealthy way to prepare chicken. That’s why you should consider using an air fryer if you want a healthier alternative, or just look for a reputable local fried chicken restaurant. If you want to make something a little more unique and gourmet, then we’d suggest either a more expensive restaurant or actually learning how to make it yourself.
Sweet and savory chicken dishes
Sweet and savory is a combination that many people despise, but it’s actually a surprisingly tasty way to enjoy certain types of foods. This chicken and rice with peace sauce recipe is a fantastic showcase of how versatile chicken is, but also how effective a sweet and savory combination can be when used in the right quantities. We highly suggest you give it a try if you want to try a unique type of chicken dish that isn’t seen on most menus.
Teriyaki is a mixture of soy sauce, Japanese wine known as sake, ginger and a few other special flavourings. This makes the sauce base for many different Japanese dishes that are usually known as teriyaki. Chicken teriyaki is the poultry version that creates succulent meat that is slightly sweet, savoury and extremely moreish. It’s a Japanese speciality that has made its way to the west. You can actually purchase teriyaki sauces that can be used to marinate the chicken before you grill or fry it.
Jerk chicken is a Caribbean favorite that consists of spicy grilled chicken flavored with scotch bonnet chili peppers and a range of different ingredients like allspice. Every family has their own take on jerk chicken, but it’s often a mixture that is dry-rubbed or wet marinated into a chicken before being grilled. The taste is smoky, sweet and spicy thanks to the pepper, but you also get a slight hint of sourness.
