  • 3 lbs chicken pieces, a mixture of thighs and drumsticks
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 ½ cups 7-up
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt.
  • In a plastic resealable bag, combine the lemon juice, soy sauce and 7-up. Add chicken pieces, seal the bag and toss to combine. Marinade in the fridge overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Set a rack over a baking sheet.
  • Drain chicken from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Spread flour on a shallow dish. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour, then fry, in batches, in hot oil for about 2 minutes on each side or until coating is a light golden brown.
  • Transfer the chicken to the rack and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes or until crispy and the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced.
