Filipino-style Fried Chicken

Hubby, daughter and I are having a lazy Sunday today. When we have lazy Sundays, I usually prepare good meals. For breakfast, I made chocolate chip pancakes and banana pancakes using my pancake recipe. Then lunchtime came and I couldn't figure out what to make. Our lime tree is growing some good limes and I have some chicken wings in the fridge. hmmmm...... I haven't made Filipino fried chicken yet, so why not make it.

My dad has been telling me how my daughter loves his Filipino fried chicken. And mine didn't fail today and Hubby really liked it too. Its a really simple dish to make. I used lime on this dish because I had some, but you can definitely use lemon as well. This is definitely going to make rounds more often.

1-2 lb. chicken wings
1/4 cup lime juice (or lemon juice)
1/4 cup soy sauce

1) Place wings in a freezer bag or bowl. In a small bowl, combine lime juice and soy sauce and pour over chicken. Marinate for 1-2 hours.

2) Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry. In a pan, heat 3/4 cup oil on low-medium heat. Fry chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve with rice.
