The Best Fried Chicken and Quince Recipe

Here’s the best fried chicken and quince recipe, from my favorite Armenian cuisine.Or should I say, my own version of an Armenian dish.

This is not even an exact recipe, this dish is about two simple ingredients: meat and fruit, properly spiced and slow cooked, fried together. One completing the taste of the other, making the entire meal deliciously unique and flavorful.

In general, fried chicken recipes are quite similar, what makes this one special , is that fragrant fruit : quince. It’s interesting how one simple fruit can change the taste of meat and make it so irresistible and so good.

I really hope you make and try My fried chicken and quince recipe and enjoy it as much as I did.

Would be happy to hear your feedback after you try. You can always reach me out on my instagram and Facebook pages.

Happy cooking!

Remove the meat from fridge and add the sliced fruit, toss to incorporate

As those turn light golden color, add the butter in between the slices
