Five-Spice Fried Chicken using a product pre-mix

Sometimes moms need a little help to get meals done quickly. I am on a mission to test out some of these products to see which ones are worth the money and worth the time too.


  • 8 small drummets


  • 3 tablespoons of Heng's Five Spice Fried Chicken Mix
  • 2 tablespoons of potato starch
  • 7 tablespoons of water

Dusting Flour

  • 3 tbsp heaping of plain flour
  • 1 big tbsp of Heng's Five Spice Fried Chicken Mix


  • Plop all your drummets into a zip-lock bag.
  • Mix your marinade together and make it into like a loose paste. Pour it into the bag with the chicken. Seal it and rub it all over the drummets.
  • Leave it to sit for 1 hour or overnight.
  • Mix the dusting flour ingredients. Take out the drummets and dust them with the flour.
  • Heat a wok or deep pan with enough oil for frying. Let it come to frying temp.
  • Shake off the excess flour and drop it into the hot oil for frying. I fried the drummets twice, First time was 3-4 mins. Second time was about 2 mins in high temp.
  • Drain on a rack.
