Authentic Vietnamese Fried Quail – Chim Cut Chien

Thai cuisine has its own unique flavors and cooking techniques. Vietnamese cuisine is a bit similar to Thai, but has its own specialities. This blog post is a guide for preparing authentic Vietnamese Fried Quail, which is called Chim Cut Chien.

Do you know how to make Authentic Vietnamese Fried Quail? This recipe is the traditional recipe to make Chim Cut Chien, which is the most well-known Vietnamese dish. It is different from the other recipe of Fried Chicken in the Vietnamese cuisine because the following cooking method is used: the chicken is first boiled and then fried. Sometimes, the chicken skin is removed from the chicken body before that. This recipe is a must to try for all the foodies out there!

The texture of fried quail is a bit chewy and extra oily. The flavor is gamey and not so tasty. The skin is thin and translucent, but not crispy. The meat is soft and chewy, without any fresh raw flavor. Fried quail is often served as a kind of appetizer in Vietnamese cuisine.

Learn how to prepare this tasty dish of authentic Vietnamese fried quail, a universally delicious street food in Vietnam called Chim Cut Chien. Here’s a delicious recipe you can make at home.

You haven’t tasted Vietnamese cuisine if you haven’t tried roasted quail. Although sticky rice and pho stalls are all that attract food lovers in Vietnam, the taste of crispy fried quail is delicious. Frying quail in boiling oil is truly the art of street food. Although the more authentic versions are fully deep-fried, I’m happy to report that the homemade versions are just as delicious (and healthier, too). Often, most people prefer small quail to standard-sized quail because they can eat the whole quail (even the bones).

List of Asian grocery stores for Vietnamese fried quail

Quail

You can often find fresh quail in the fresh meat section. Quail can also be found in frozen form in the frozen meat section. When choosing quail, as mentioned above, you should choose smaller quail if you prefer to eat the bones. If you don’t like eating the bones (I don’t either), you can choose a larger size to get a larger portion of meat.

Chinese five-spice

Although you can find this spice in local stores, Asian stores usually have the lowest prices for spices.

Oyster sauce

I usually choose the Panda or Thai Boat brand (red color).

Tips and tricks for cooking Vietnamese fried quail

word-image-8138 For a healthier version of this recipe, you can grill it outside. I prefer to use a charcoal grill to give it that flavor. In the original recipe, it is usually fried in vegetable oil and/or in a pan. If you buy frozen quail, be sure to let them thaw completely and dry after thawing. Also, wipe the body cavity with paper towels if you bought your quail fresh. The best advice here is to marinate the quail overnight, this will bring out their flavors.
