COXINHA DE FRANGO RECIPE
2 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves of garlic, minced
½ medium onion, finely chopped
2¼ cups chicken breast, cooked and shredded
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp butter
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup panko
2-3 cups vegetable oil
For the chicken filling, heat the olive oil in a large pot and sauté garlic and onion until soft and brown. Add shredded chicken and salt and pepper and cook until chicken is brown. Reserve.
For the dough, in the same pot add butter, chicken broth, and milk and bring to a boil. Stir in flour until dough is formed. Knead the dough while it is warm but not hot.
Pinch off a piece of dough about the size of an egg and roll into a ball. Using your hands, flatten the dough. Spoon fill with chicken into the center. Wrap the dough into a pear shape and make sure there aren’t are holes.
While heating a pot of vegetable oil to 350°, dredge the dough in egg and then panko, then deep fry a few at a time until golden brown and cooked through.
