You might be wondering what’s special about this easy pan-fried chicken!
The truth is, it’s not an extraordinary recipe! But, it’s one of the simplest fried chicken recipes that we always make at home. It requires only a handful of ingredients, doesn’t involve a long marination, and can be prepared in less than 20 minutes. It’s our goto recipe when we feel like having some fried chicken but doesn’t want to spend a lot of time waiting for it to be ready.
For most of us, fried chicken is our comfort food of choice. It’s something that we never get bored of! And we love trying out new options! This recipe is one such success story.
This fried chicken is a great balance of flavours. It’s healthy as well! It’s not deep-fried like most of the popular fried chicken options that we have. We use just enough oil to pan-fry the chicken.

I have used chicken thighs for this post, but you could use any cut for this fried chicken preparation. The marinade is easy-peasy! It’s made with chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, vinegar, and salt. We only need these five basic ingredients. It’s the ratio of these ingredients that make all the difference. I use two parts chilli powder, one part coriander, and half turmeric powder with one part vinegar. This is mixed well with a little water and salt to make a marinade. Try to get it to a thick paste-like consistency.
A note of caution about the chilli powder. Unless you have a high tolerance for the chilli heat, go with a mild variant of chilli. I use Kashmiri chilli powder which brings in a fantastic bright red colour without adding too much heat. Paprika is a pretty good substitute that you could use.
