Jump to Recipe

Ji Pai is a popular dish in Taiwan, also known as Taiwanese Fried Chicken. It is made by marinating chicken pieces, typically bone-in chicken thighs or wings, in a mixture of soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and other spices. The chicken is then coated in a batter made of flour, cornstarch, and various seasonings, such as five-spice powder or paprika, before being deep-fried until golden brown and crispy.

The result is a savory, juicy, and flavorful fried chicken that is often served as a snack or street food in Taiwan. Ji Pai is typically served with a variety of dipping sauces, such as sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, or spicy mayonnaise.

Ji Pai has become increasingly popular worldwide, with many Taiwanese restaurants and street food vendors featuring it on their menus. It is often served in a paper or plastic bag for easy consumption on the go. Ji Pai is also sometimes served with a side of fried sweet potato or taro for added crunch and sweetness.
