Fried chicken is definitely a universal dish favoured upon by anyone of any age. Seriously, who could resist such a tempting, finger-licking and crunchy treats? Helming at the top would be none other than Kentucky Fried Chicken with its extensive chain, proliferating across the globe. Even so, there are still many variants of how fried chicken is prepared and greatly loved by us. Here, we feature our top picks of delicious fried chicken recipes created by the locals.
1. Lim Fried Chicken
10 years after the first KFC outlet landed in Malaysia, Lim Fried Chicken was born. Having their first premise in Subang Jaya, they have grew into chain outlets. Their fried chicken is not only tasty but humongous, giving great value for money. Its always served fresh with its layer of golden skin that is thin and crispy. The meat is tender and juicy since only chicken thighs are used.
On top of that, it is served with either curry rice or chee cheong fun. Having a good piece of fried chicken that is fried to a juicy perfection coupled with rice doused in a generous curry gravy is a combination that is absurdly satisfying and heavenly. The full set comes with a side of vegetables as well, starting from RM9.80 per set. It’s a complete meal that is truly satisfying and affordable.

2. Gombak Fried Chicken Rice at Jalan Prima Setapak
A fried chicken stall that has been around for over 2 decades and still commands a big crowd of loyal customers.There is always a long queue at the family owned Gombak Fried Chicken Rice. The fried chicken served here is guaranteed fresh, evidently from seeing the owner preparing everything on the spot, from the batter mixing to the whole process of how the fried chicken is done. The secret to the crispy exterior of their fried chicken lies in the batter, from which it is mixed with their own unique blend of recipe that is well guarded and passed down through many generations. Each piece of chicken is thoroughly coated in batter before lowering them meticulously into a hot frying wok. Only fresh oil is used for every batch of fried chicken.
Only a limited amount of fried chicken is prepared each day, making it more precious as the owner has set high standards to maintain its freshness and exceptional quality. It is usually served with rice at a startling price of only RM6 for a complete meal. The audible crackling sound made when the fried chicken is chopped, is an attestment to a great meal coming up!

3. Wong Soon Kee
This is where the original Lim Fried Chicken was founded before they moved into another premise. The same spot is currently occupied by a mixed rice seller and yes, you guess it right, their fried chicken is making waves. The alluring sight of their fried chicken is what made their rice stall famous and a must-order for every patrons. What makes their fried chicken stands out is the spiced marinade and curry leaves used, giving it not only an interesting flavour, but a delicious scent and appealing outlook. Not to be deceived by the crunchy exterior, the meat inside is locked and packed with juicy tender texture.
You can opt for just the fried chicken or with rice and a huge selection of other dishes to go with it. The whole leg cost RM7 which is very reasonable given its large size that is also baffling for its uniformity, with every piece having almost the same exact size and consistency of getting cooked just right.
