Crispy Chicken with Colonial Curry Sauce – RedMart Recipes

Crispy Chicken 1

This crispy chicken with colonial curry sauce recipe is a family favourite. I learnt the recipe over 20 years ago in Sydney from an old Hainanese uncle.  We usually cook this as a curry, but today I will cook the chicken first to give it a crispy skin and then serve it with the sauce!  If you are in a hurry, you can simply sauté the onions and chicken first and cook the chicken in the sauce.  It goes really well with white rice!

Now onto my Crispy Chicken with Colonial Curry Sauce recipe!


Boneless Chicken Thigh or  Kee Song Organic Lacto boneless chicken leg (Fresh) 300g
Waugh’s Curry Powder 1 Tbsp
Bonduelle Organic green peas 1 cup
Milk 1/2 cup
RedMart UK brown onion 1 small
RedMart Raw Sugar 2 tsp
Knorr SavorRich concentrated chicken Seasoning 1 Tbsp
Lime juice 1 tsp
Grated Lime zest 1/2 tsp


1.  Using a sharp knife, make incisions on the skin of the chicken
2.  Cover with cling wrap and flatten the chicken with a meat tenderizer.  Season with salt on both sides and leave in the fridge with the the skin side up for 1 hour or overnight
3.  Add oil to a cold pan and place skin side of chicken onto the pan.  Place another pot or pan over the chicken and start the fire. Pan fry for 8 mins.
4.  After 8 mins, inspect the skin.  If needed, fry for another 3mins till gold brown and crispy.  Then flip over and lightly fry the meat side for a min.  Set aside
5.  To prepare curry sauce, saute sliced onions, add 1/2 cup water, curry powder and chciken seasoning and simmer for 2 mins.
