Crispy Fried chicken

You will need:

For Marination:

  • 1 lb chicken (preferably thighs or drumstick)
  • 3 cup hot water(luke warm water is also fine)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp curd
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder
For the coating

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pepper powder(optional.. We prefer spicy chicken)
  • 1 cup Oven fry Extra Crispy chicken. (I used KRAFT brand)
  • 3 tbsp All purpose flour/ Maida

Step 1:

Make some slots in the chicken and soak it in the hot water for 3 hours along with the marination ingredients like(salt, curd, chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder).

Step 2:

After 3 hours dry the chicken using paper towel and keep it aside.

Step 3:

In a mixing bowl just mix the egg very well and keep it asde. In another mixing bowl mix the all purpose flour , pepper powder and the crispy fried chicken mixture and keep it aside.

Step 4:

Take a cookie sheet and spray it with non stick cooking spray.

Step 5:

Take the chicken and first coat the chicken with the egg mixture and then into the crispy mixture and place it in the cookie sheet.

Step 6:

Bake it in 400 F for 20 mins for boneless chicken. For boned chicken bake it for 35 mins.

You can substitute the crispy fried chicken mixture with bread crumbs too. But using this crispy fried mixture you will get very very crispy chicken.

If you are making with bread crumbs add some chilli powder, pepper powder and salt along with the bread crumbs.

Instead of baking you can deep fry the chicken also at medium heat for few minutes till it turn light golden brown color.
