5 Ways To Eat Fried Chicken, The Ultimate Chakna For Your Whisky

“Patiala peg and chicken da leg” is not just a food pairing. It’s an emotion, that’s best enjoyed when sitting with your yaars on a terrace, sipping on a glass of McDowell’s No. 1 whisky.  


We’ve all been there and done that. It’s the ultimate plan for those “aaj ka scene kya hai” questions. 

There’s something just so special about enjoying a peg of whisky with a plate of fried chicken. Hmmm *Drools* 

If you agree with us, you’ll surely love to try out these fried chicken recipes that make for some awesome chakna with whisky. 

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC)
Extra crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside, there’s a reason why it’s called finger lickin' good. 

Chicken Crispy
When you’re craving for some Chindian food, pair chicken crispy with your whisky. These batter-fried titbits are tossed in a sweet and spicy sauce to keep your taste buds happy. 

Chicken Tikka 
Chicken tikka and whisky is the desi equivalent of wine and cheese. Chicken tikka is spicy and soul-satisfying, perfect for when you’re hanging out with your drinking buddies. 

Spicy Chicken Wings
Whisky and wings are another quarter bar staple. Plus, these are made in an air fryer, which means you can enjoy that same crispy fried texture minus the added oil.  

Chicken 65
What chicken tikka is to North India, chicken 65 is to South India. It is the perfect appetiser to pair with your meal and the perfect chakna to pair with your whisky.

So, the next time you catch up with your yaars with a bottle of McDowell’s No.1 whisky, don’t forget to give these chicken recipes a shot.
