Soy Lime Ginger Fried Chicken

This is a Philippine-style recipe for fried chicken marinated in soy sauce and citrus juice. The skin becomes both crispy and a little sticky with the sugars in the soy sauce and lime juice and is a great way to make chicken wings for game day too! If you don’t want to fry your chicken, try baking it in the oven for a lighter way to enjoy this delicious recipe.
