How to make puerto rican chicken

Updated on September 25, 2009


Best chicken ever!

 What you need:

  • chicken thighs or legs
  • vegetable oil
  • flour
  • frying pan
  • drainer
  • 2 large bowls

Seasonings you need:

  • Goya Adobo (all purpose)
  • Sazo'n Goya ( comes in an orange and yellow box with little packets in it)

Per 6 to 9 pieces of chicken

OK first your going to mix together about one cup of flower, 1/2 cup of sazon Goya,1/3 cup of Goya adobe into one of your bowls.

Next your going to turn on your stove to med and put about 2/3 cup of vegetable oil in the frying pan. Wait till the oil gets good and hot before you put the chicken in there.

I take each piece of chicken and wash it off with cold water than make a small slice with a knife on the top and the bottom of the chicken then i dip it in the seasoning mix then put it in the hot oil.

Now while your doing this put your drainer inside your large bowl( the clean one). When the chicken is done you can put the pieces in this so the grease will drain off.

I don't have an exact time for the chicken to cook just take a pair of tongs and pinch the area on the chicken where u sliced it and look inside and see if it has any pink meat left. If it don't then that piece is done(make sure to check both sides of the chicken).

This chicken goes great with rice or mac & cheese! Hope you enjoy!

      Much easier than frying and still get a crispy skin here is what I do. For 8 legs and thighs I mix 1 tablespoon Adobo and 1 packet sazon together. I rinse and dry the chicken and rub this mixture all over the chicken. I even loosen the skin and rub some under it. 450 degree oven skin sidedown 20-30 minutes turn and roast another 20-30 minutes. Yum Yum
