Prep Time

15 minutes

Cook Time

30 minutes approx

Yield

4 pieces

Ingredients

4 portions of chicken. Here I used 4 chicken thighs

The Chicken Coating

1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp chipotle chili powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 garlic salt.
2 eggs, beaten (you may need more)

Instructions

1. Wash chicken and pat dry with kitchen paper.

2. In a large bowl, add the flour and seasonings and mix well.

3. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs.

4. Start by placing the chicken in to the egg, then in to the flour mixture. Cover all the chicken with the mixture. Then repeat, in to the egg then the flour so each piece of chicken has a double coating. Set aside on a plate and heat up your fry pan with enough oil to cover about 1 1/2 inches deep.

5. When the oil is hot, VERY carefully place each chicken piece in the oil. Take care of any splashes of hot oil. When golden, turn the chicken over and do cook the other side.

Test if the oil is hot enough by dropping a tiny bit of crumb in the oil. If it sizzles and floats to the top, it’s hot!

Depending on the thickness of your chicken, it will take around 20 minutes, perhaps a little more if thicker joints are used. When you think it is ready, remove on to kitchen paper. Take a knife and just cut through one of the thighs to make sure the juices run clear.
