Mum’s Home-style Thai Fried Chicken

There are so many reasons we love this recipe. One, it’s fried chicken, natch. Second, it uses all pantry ingredients, making it so easy. And third, it includes… sweetened condensed milk! Yep, you read that right! It’s Mama Noi’s secret ingredient in her home-style fried chicken to give it a slightly sweet, beautifully caramelised flavour. Like we said, love, love, love!
