Broasters are frying equipments for chicken or other meats. Broasting chicken involves frying of chicken under pressure using a special marinating process. This specific marinate is available only in restaurants or hotels, so it’s not easy to make at home.
In this process, the taste of the chicken is similar to fried chicken, less greasy, but moister. Boasted chicken appears nutty and crispy, with a golden-brown coating, but very pulpy and tender deep down to the inside of the bone. It’s very appealing to look at and instantly tempting.
