Brazilian Pavilion "Chicken Bossa Nova"

edbattle | Sep 23, 2011 04:15 AM

The old Brazilian Pavilion restaurant on E 53rd St served fried chicken with crisply fried garlic and parsley: Chicken Bossa Nova.

I ordered this many times over many years and continue to miss it. Does anyone have a recipe for their version, which I should point out was fried with a batter, not grilled with herbs?

It was particularly light and crispy, and I have wondered if tapioca flour was used as the breading.

Thanks for any guidance!
