Astig na Pritong Pakpak - Fried Chicken - FoodwithMae (5 of 7)

Astig na Pritong Pakpak

Filipino Fried Chicken with Banana Ketchup

My family loves good fried chicken. I definitely love the crispy chicken wings and I watch asmr videos of people eating crispy fried chicken. The crispy sounds of fried chicken and the crunch is like music to my ears. 

The word ‘astig’ is a slang Filipino word for awesome or badass. I think this recipe is pretty badass and delicious. One thing you will notice is that I used a lot of garlic in this recipe. Filipinos love garlic! The most popular Filipino fried chicken is from Jollibee but I wanted to make one that is different from Jollibee but recognisable enough for everyone. Since many know about the Korean fried chicken, I thought to adapt a similar concept but make it Filipino with the sauce. Banana ketchup is a popular condiment in the Philippines. I thought this would be the best sauce to use along with the soy sauce and more garlic. 

Marinate the chicken for about 1-2 hours, you can marinate it overnight in the fridge too. This will allow the flavours to go into the meat. 

You can also prepare the flour mixture in advance too. If you want to make the fried chicken spicy you can add some dried/powdered chillies with the flour mixture.

Fried Chicken

1kg chicken wings
2 garlic cloves
2 teaspoon salt for marinating
1 teaspoon black pepper
150ml sparkling water
150g-200g corn flour
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt for the flour mixture
1 teaspoon black pepper for the flour mixture
Oil for frying

Banana Sauce

1 small onion
2 garlic cloves
150ml banana ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons oil

Thickening – 1 tablespoon corn and flour 100ml water


Spring onions
Crispy garlic



Using a knife and chopping board, slice the chicken into halves, discarding the tip of the wings. Marinate the chicken with some chopped garlic, salt and pepper. Leave it on the side for later.




In a tray or bowl, add corn flour, garlic powder, black pepper and mix them well.  Leave it on the side for later. Heat some oil in a wok or deep pan. 




Take each chicken piece and cover them well with flour mixture and place them on a tray or plate ready to fry. Once the oil is hot enough, add the chicken into the oil, fry them for the first time for 3 minutes and take them out into a plate. Do this until all of the chicken wings are fried for the first time. 




Using a strainer, scoop all the bits from the oil, discarding them properly. Be careful it will be hot. 




Next, fry the chicken wings for the second time until they are nice and crispy for about 5-7 minutes. Do this until all of the chicken wings are fried for the second time. Leave it on the side for later.




In a wok, heat some oil, saute onions for a minute followed by garlic and cook for another minute. Add banana ketchup, soy sauce, salt, black pepper, sugar and thickening mixture. Give it a good mix and let it simmer until the sauce is thickened. Add fried chicken into the sauce and mix them well until the chicken is covered with sauce. 




Serve on a plate topped with spring onions and crispy garlic.
