Video Blog 1 | How to Make Fried Chicken Ala Jollibee

I'm on my way over there with my camera and ready to shoot our first video.

My girlfriend Kelly cheerfully announced.  No. I'm Not Ready, was my immediate retort.  Well girl, just look at it as if you will just be cooking for tonight's dinner.  You could do it.  

You could do it!  Four powerful words that sparked enthusiasm and excitement.  Before I knew it, I was giggling with her, in front of the camera like we were just having fun.  And this my friends is what I would like to present to you... my first collaborative work with Kelly.


Thank you Kelly for the encouragement, the tips, and for shooting this video blog.  And as I mentioned in my May 29 post... Thank you for being a friend. 

Thank you for watching.  Let me know what you think.  xo, Malou P.S. I have shared the recipe of Fried Chicken a la Jollibee in a previous post.  I hope you don't mind if I'll just direct you there to get the whole recipe.  Please click here.

  3. If honestly, I don't have a sound on this PC. But the great thing about your video is that even without sound I could see and understand how much what products you are using and what you are doing! I love it!

    i couldn't help but sing this commercial jingle while I watched your version of Chicken Joy getting cooked, Ms. Malou... It looks like the real thing and you make it look like it's so easy to cook...

    will definitely try this soon...

  6. Malou,
    I hope you continue to make videos. You are a natural artist. You certainly have a place on YouTube or on a TV show. I learned a new trick and thank you for sharing.

  7. Ms. Malou, if you could put the measurement in text here would really appreciate it, sometimes i would rather read then watch because it makes me have problems when i compare my work to yours, and it turned out to be unsuccessful for i would wanted my work to be exactly replica as yours. would really appreciate it, i miss that chicken joy in philippines so when i got your update i was so eager to learn the recipe so i could make it and serve it to my family. thanks in advance.

  8. I really enjoyed that, Malou. You should be in The Next Food Network Star. My children love Chicken Joy, too, and that really looks like it. I could imagine the aroma. Crispy, too! You are tease.

  9. Great job, Malou! And this comes from someone who has been in front of (and behind) the camera before. While my grandmother's fried chicken is our family's favorite, I might have to give your recipe a shot once it gets cooler in San Diego.

    Some other thoughts:
    - It would be helpful if the recipe was also included in text format.
    - Try using a clip-on (AKA lavalier) or shotgun mic next time as it makes the audio more crisp. If your video camera has a mic input, it's as easy as ordering a cheap clip-on or shotgun mic online.

    Otherwise, great series and I can't wait to see more videos of you in the kitchen! Also, a big thumb's up to your friend Kelly for cheering you on and helping with the technical aspects of the video. :D

  11. Hi Malou. Our place is strategically located near Jolibee, McDo, Chowking, KFC, Mang Inasal, Shakey's, etc. which all serve popular chicken dishes so fried chicken is usually not among my usual menus at home. And honestly, I become disappointed when I don't get the expected outcome despite the many breading mixes I've tried. Your video gave me a new hope :) Just one question--- can you share with me what you do with the excess oil? because that's another reason why I don't like to deep-fry.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Gosh, you're a natural in front of the camera. The video was great! I love seeing things when learning a new technique. Only downside, though - and this is just me - is I can read a recipe much quicker than the time it takes to watch a video. But I think most people prefer the video. Good work!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi Malou, love your Filipino style fried chicken, which is so crispy and delicious!
    Your video is really great...you're a 'natural' as I told you before. It's a bit too long though, just for simple fried chicken demo! Also, please don't suggest to your readers to add water to the oil to test the heat; it could be very dangerous by splattering grease in one's face...rather, add a few crumbs of the frying batter!

  15. What is five spice compose of

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Five spice is a blend of 5 different spices used in Asian cooking. IT's sold i a packet or in a botte. If it's not available, you can mix the ff:
      1 tablespoon Ground anise
      1 tablespoon Black peppercorns
      1 tablespoon Ground cinnamon
      1 tablespoon Ground cloves
      1 tablespoon Fennel seeds

      Delete
    2. Is five spice required? If not, what could be the best alternative spice/s I can use?

      Delete
    3. Hi Fred!
      Five spice is an important ingredient in this recipe as it gives you the "hint" and similarity in terms of taste with that of a Jollibee Chickenjoy. Five spice is usually sold in packets or a small jar and is readily available in any Asian specialty grocery store.
      Thank you for your question and good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance.
      Best,
      malou

    1. hello there!
      1/2 to 1 lemon should be enough. you don't want to overpower it. so if you want it lemon-y wild, 1/2 is fine.
      thanks for asking!
