As you know, I have this thing for fried chicken and I do indulge in it every once in a while. I normally do not quite like the thigh or drumstick part of the chicken which is often found at fried chicken stalls so when I stumble across Uncle Bob’s Fried Chicken, I was beyond ecstatic. Uncle Bob is definitely after my greedy tums!
This stall, found at the Farlim night market every Wednesday, sells only chicken breast meat without the skin. Sigh…it is almost too good to be true. Of course, the stall promotes it as healthy fat-free chicken. Don’t be fooled though. It may be skinless and chicken breast meat but it is still deep-fried in oil so it isn’t all that ‘fat free’ as claimed.
Other than that I absolutely love the fried chicken by this stall! The chicken meat is extremely tender despite it being a chicken breast meat and since it is coated in bread crumbs and flour, it is also crunchy. It comes in spicy or normal flavour. Before serving, they even cut it up into small bite sizes and add some sort of seasoning powder. If you choose the spicy one, they add the spicy seasoning powder.
Uncle Bob’s Fried Chicken is actually a franchise thing from Taiwan.
Price:$$ (RM4.80 each)
By the way, you can check out their website: www.unclebob.com.my for their stall locations.

2 egg whites, beaten
1 cup mix of oat bran and ready-made fried chicken flour (available at supermarkets)

3. Dip chicken into egg white.

I use oat bran because it is much healthier than bread crumbs.
