Do you like to eat a PURPLE CHICKEN?  I know it sound weird but it's true, there is a recipe that I've just encountered during ELECTION here in the Philippines.  

One of my COMELEC-BEI colleagues bring here lunch to our polling precinct, as she opens her Tupperware I saw her chicken in a different color, a purple color chicken.

It looks like this.

And because I am curious what happened to her FRIED CHICKEN I ask her.  And she told me she marinated the chicken with DRY RED WINE.  WHAT???  Hahahaha...it turns out purple because of the red wine?

Okay, I am convinced.  How does it taste?  Hmmmm..it does taste weird too?  Have a try. Here are the recipes and procedures.  You will be to judge.


1 1/2 cup dry red wine
1 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
3-4 cloves garlic, minced and chopped
1/2 medium onion, small dice
1 tsp red chili powder or cayenne powder
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp oil


1 kilo breast or drumstick chicken
bread crumbs or flour
black pepper
oil for frying   


  1. Mix the purple marinade ingredients to a a mixing bowl.  Let them sit for a couple of minutes.
  2. Take three large boneless chicken breast or drums and chop them into a bite size.
  3. Put the chicken together with the marinated mixture into a bowl until the chicken is uniformly coated and has begun to turn into a purple color.
  4. Put into the fridge for half hour in order to soak up the purple marinaded goodness.
  5. Do not over marinated the chicken since you already chop into a bite size.
  6. After half hour, get your mix and marinated purple chicken and batter it with bread crumbs or flour.
  7. Heat up a large skillet, put oil and lightly dredge the pieces to the hot oil.
  8. Brown your purple chicken bits in all sides then turn the heat to medium to low.  Cook until done.
  9. Serve with salad tops with vinegar and oil.

Make your own PURPLE FRIED CHICKEN now and tell me how does it taste.
