kfc style chicken strips


Everyone likes a fastfood every now and then. They’re not too good for us (unfortunately). That’s why I try to come up with healthier, home made versions, that can satisfy that fast food craving, without giving you a worry over your health ๐Ÿ˜‰

This time I tried to tackle the ever-famous, elusive kfc chicken. It’s delicious, but I’m pretty sure it’s full ofย  1000 types of preservants, loads of salt, and you can never be 100 % sure about how fresh it is or what’s the source of the chicken. So, here’s my version of it. It went down very well in my household, I’m sure you can make it too ๐Ÿ˜‰ it’s not that difficult, and it’s only fraction of the price you’d pay in KFC.

Those amounts make for about 14-16 chicken strips.

What you’ll need is:

2 large chicken breasts ( prefferably free range, bio chicken)

About 150g of flour

Salt to taste

Black pepper

1 tsp of garlic powder

1 tsp of onion powder

1 tsp of sugar

1 tsp of paprika powder.

1 egg

1 tsp of hot mustard

A deep frying pan

1l of sunflower oil.

Now, this is very straightforward, just cut your chicken into thin, long strips, mix the flour with all the dry spices and put it in one bowl, put the raw egg into another bowl,add the mustard and whisk. Throw all your chicken into the egg first and coat it well, then pop the whole thing into the flour, and toss until the flour absorbs the egg and coats the chicken. Then put the chicken one by one in the hot oil. Fry until the pieces are golden brown. Serve with home-made garlic dip or bbq sauce. Easy, quick and delicious ๐Ÿ˜‰ enjoy!
