Taiwanese Deep-Fried Chicken

Despite the fact that most Taiwanese are probably not familiar with the term “finger-licking good” doesn’t mean they don’t know what honest-to-goodness deep-fried chicken is.

In fact, they’ve perfected the art of producing tender white chicken chunks dipped in a special batter and sprinkled with the most delicious herbs and spices to be found.

Taiwanese Deep-Fried Chicken is one of the most popular snacks in Taiwan, and it’s not unusual to see kids snacking on chicken fillets or  chicken chunks at school. You can even find pre-packaged deep fried fillets at the local 7-11.

The Taiwanese recipe is highly addictive. Vendors offer a number of seasonings, such as white pepper, chili, Taiwanese basil, curry, dried laver, plum, and garlic to give it an exotic flavor. Ingredients seem to differ from food cart to food cart.

It’s bad for me, I know, but there’s no denying that the Taiwanese have a thing or two to teach the Colonel about secret blends of herbs and spices.  This spicy treat never fails to make my mouth water every time I pass through a night market.

I'm a chronically ill Canadian who has been living in Taiwan since 2006. I'm a bit of a jack of all trades! I love art, gardening, flower arranging, reading (that's an understatement if you've seen my GoodReads profile), and snuggling with my cats. Animal videos make me cry. I hate cooking. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my garden bloom! Learning about new cultures and exploring the world has been my thing since I started traveling at age 19. A self-professed autodidact, I can speak comfortably on many different subjects and hold a special place in my heart for science, technology, law, health and medicine, and history. You can find me nerding out at home most of the time due to being chronically ill and housebound. If I'm not engaged in one of the activities listed above, I'm probably building websites.
