Deep Fry Whole Chicken

For sure we've love to eat fried chicken more than anything else especially if it is juicy and tasty. Most of the chicken I tasted is simply coated with a breading or bread crumbs to make it delicious or tasty. But how about a simple fried chicken without this crumbs? Well I think some of us know how to do it. Here is my Simpleng Luto way of cooking.

What We Need/Ingredients:
1 whole or a half dressed chicken
1 large onion 
2 chicken cubes
black pepper
leeks chopped (optional)
salt to taste

Before deep frying the whole chicken boil chicken with the seasonings.

Place chicken in a large pot together with the onion, leeks, black pepper, chicken cubes, and salt depend on your taste; add water to cover. Cover pot and bring to a boil; reduce heat to a gentle boil and cook for about 90 minutes, or until chicken meat is soften.

Remove chicken and drain.

Now, deep fry chicken until golden.
Serve and enjoy!
