Crumb fried chicken

The countdown for my chicken event begins. The deadline is just four days away and so I decided that instead of posting a chicken recipe of mine with the round up, the next few posts of mine this month would be dedicated to chicken dishes alone.

I had this KFC chicken while on a visit to Bangalore and absolutely loved it. This is my version of the crumb fried chicken that both my husband and daughter vouch for.

Ingredients
Chicken -1/2 kg
Egg -1
Breadcrumbs/powdered cornflakes- enough to coat
Refined flour-2 to 3 tbsp
Ginger-garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Salt- to taste
Pepper- ½ tsp



Method:
Wash and clean the chicken. Marinate in a mixture of ginger-garlic paste, flour, egg, salt and pepper. Let marinate for atleast an hour. Roll on breadcrumbs/powdered cornflakes and deep fry till golden brown.

I generally use cornflakes powder for this chicken instead of bread crumbs as it turns out real crisp and is also healthy. If you have cornflakes coarsely ground , it would give you the authentic KFC chicken look as well.

It is great as an appetizer for any gathering. Easy to make and hardly requires any preparation. I personally find it a great way to bring a smile to my daughter's face.

Yum Yum Yum!!! we used sweet chilli sauce and super hot chilli sauce mixed together for dipping - KFC eat your heart out! ... this was fantastic! ... had to nuke it in the microwave for some short period to make sure inside was properly cooked. Baking maybe another option - fat less!? ... :) anyways - awesome!
