Ingredients

  • 220 ml vegetable oil, for frying

Method

Soak the chicken pieces in milk and mix the spices, flour and seasoning in a plastic bag or piping bag. Place the chicken pieces in the bag and shake thoroughly to ensure the chicken is coated completely.

Heat the vegetable oil in a pan. Make the oil is around a centimetre deep. Place the chicken pieces in the oil and cook for a couple of minutes on each side. Once cooked, remove from the pan and place on some kitchen paper to absorb any excess oil.
