  • deep fryer or frying pan


  • 2 kilos chicken your choice cuts

How to Cook Jollibee Chicken Joy:

  • Put the chicken pieces in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Rub and press each chicken with the salt and pepper so all the pieces is evenly coated.
  • Next, to make the breading, in a mixing bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, five spice powder, garlic powder and salt.
  • Stir the dry ingredients using a fork until all the ingredients are evenly mixed.
  • Heat the oil in the deep fryer or deep frying pan for about 175°C.
  • Coat a piece of chicken with the breading inside and out. Coat underneath the skin as well.
  • Do it by pressing each chicken with the breading then shake off excess breading and fry it.
  • Depending on the size of your fryer and the size of your chicken, you can put 4 to 5 pieces per batch.
  • Just don't overcrowd the fryer to avoid the fried chicken to become soggy and loose it's crispiness.
  • Cook it for about 15 to 20 minutes in medium fire.
  • Put the chicken in a paper towel or a rack to drain the excess oil.
  • Serve with your favorite gravy. Enjoy!
