Fried chicken is life.
The golden crust, the sheer succulence enclosed within its crusty exterior and the sensation you get the second your teeth sink into and through the crunchy layer to expose all that piping-hot chicken deliciousness—is frankly all it takes to transport us to gastronomic heaven.
From Korean fried chicken to prawn paste chicken (Har Cheong Gai), American fried chicken and Nasi Lemak chicken wings, here are 24 best fried chicken in Singapore.
That’s it. We’re calling off our diet. How does one eat clean when KFC exists? This year, they’ve been spoiling us silly with the most sinful, delicious treats. We don’t know how they’re coming up with all these amazing creations but we’re certainly not complaining.
First, it was the Spicy Nyonya Chicken. Then, it was the shell-less Kentaco. And if those weren’t guilt-inducing enough, they brought back their crispy chicken skin.
And now, they’re incorporating culinary flavours from the land of smiles into their signature fried chicken. Not travelling to Thailand any time soon? The newest KFC Spicy Thai Crunch will surely satisfy your cravings.
Just thinking about the addictive crunch and tender interior of Korean fried chicken is enough to send many of us into a passionate frenzy; in contrast, the disappointment from a limp, oil-sodden number warrants a frenzied outrage. To prevent yourself from feeling similar disgruntlement, head over to Chir Chir for a clucking good time!

If there’s one thing any self-respecting F&B establishment in Singapore knows, is that Singaporeans love their spices. KFC surely recognises this, keeping our taste buds yearning after previous seasonal favourites such as the Red Hot Szechuan Chicken and Curry Crunch Chicken.
The common ingredient in these best-sellers? They all provide an addictive and irresistible spice infusion that renders their already finger lickin’ chicken even more finger lickin’ good. With KFC’s track record, this new addition is sure to give your tongues a hot, new thing to salivate over!
Fans of Taiwan’s famous fiery hot chicken brand, Devil Chicken, will be excited to know that they will finally be opening their first permanent outlet in Singapore. This is great news for those of you who didn’t manage to get your hands on some of their chicken at the Shilin Market event earlier this year.
The store will be opening at Century Square on the 4th of October 2019 and judging by the 4-hour queues at the Shilin Market event, be prepared for even longer queues here at their permanent store!

If you were only allowed to order one dish from any zi char stall for the rest of your life, we can bet that most Singaporeans would opt for a plate of perfectly fried har cheong gai.
Har cheong gai is Cantonese for prawn paste chicken, which is literally what it is; tender, succulent pieces of chicken that are coated with a batter comprising of flour and fragrant fermented shrimp paste before being deep-fried to perfection.
There are hundreds of places in Singapore that sell delicious, satisfying har cheong gai, but we have here is a list of the 16 best har cheong gai in Singapore that undeniably outshines the rest.
