Now once you try this out, I’d have you coming back for more. This is an easy chicken recipe I’ve perfected over time for the perfect execution in your kitchen. There’s nothing as homely as the aroma of Crispy fried chicken in the morning. For today’s recipe, I’d be using a Special type of broiler chicken from “Dennys free range Farm”. They rear one of the best chickens I’ve ever tasted for the Best chicken recipes. Tried it out during the preparation of my Christmas fried chicken with chicken stock and I got hooked :D.

Marinating the chicken
Step 1: Wash the chicken breasts thoroughly with clean water
Step 2: Slice the chicken breasts into strips of about 10 and place them in the re-sealable plastic bag
Step 3: Add the Salt, Hot Sauce, Seasoning and Herbs into the plastic bag with chicken stripes.
Step 4: Seal and mix to combine all the ingredients. (The water in the bag is from the washed chicken. It actually aids in the absorption process). Once combined, place in the refrigerator or counter top and let it sit for about two hours. By the time it is brought out, the chicken must have absorbed most of the liquid.
Coating the chicken
Step 1: In the second re-sealable bag, pour in the wheat flour and add salt
Step 2: Drop each chicken strip into the plastic bag of flour and shake till it coats every part of the chicken.
Frying the coated chicken
Step 1: Heat the Soya oil in a frying pan till it gets really hot
Step 2: Gently drop each coated chicken into the hot oil and leave to fry on both sides till it turns golden brown
Step 3: Remove from the oil and leave to drain on a paper towel
*A healthier alternative would be to bake this instead of frying
