Fun titbit: In Indonesia 'ayam goreng' is non-battered or breaded chicken usually marinated in tumeric or sweet soy sauce. If it's 'fried chicken' then it's KFC style battered chicken.

In English, we would more likely say "fried chicken," thinking of it as an uncountable, like pork or beef.

Yes, I agree.
It doesn't have to be more than one chicken.
One is more than enough for me :-)

Mother cooks us fried chicken. = not accepted, reported

It reminds me of this scene from The Blues Brothers (at time marker 3:25): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GnG7R93hfw
