Microwave "Fried" Chicken

Microwave Fried Chicken

Can you believe this is non-fried and non-grilled? I love fried chicken but always felt guilty after eating it. This is healthier version, got to admit that it is not as tasty as the real fried chicken but tastes good! No more greasy stove and flying oil... hurray!

10 chicken drumlets (best with middle wings)
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
½ tsp five-spices powder
½ tsp ground white pepper
½ tsp garlic powder
Pinch of salt

Enough tapioca flour
Bamboo skewers (soak in the water for 30 mins)


  1. Clean chicken wings, pat dry with paper towel and marinate for at least 30 minutes. You may use any marinade of your choice.
  2. Coat chicken wings with tapioca flour and put them on skewers as shown below.
  3. Arrange chicken wings on a microwaveable plate or bowl, cook uncovered on high for 5-7 minutes depending on the amount of drumlet and the size.

Update (24 Nov 07):

Used the same method for fish (yellow tail) today, turned out great... just like the deep-fried fish I craved for.

dwiana: it is really simple. Found the micro cooking method online and just try with my favourite fried chicken marinade. You can make this with your favourite marinade.

zaliana: boleh makan sebanyak you nak, lepas masak minyak semua keluar. Rendam buluh dulu so ia tak terbakar nanti... hehehe.. i takut dia terbakar lah.

I like microwaving chicken and spaghetti and cereal. Put the microwave on high. And then take some noodles in a bowl and add water. Then take some jimmy dean sausages and microwave em' .Then add salt and pepper. Mix it up !!!! Yum..... (: My kids love it.
