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