Playing with recipes (Crispy Fried Chicken)

Chicken is fun to eat if it is done the right way and cooked well, i don't like dry and boring chicken at all, love them to be crispy, succulent and fluffy. Found this recipe while searching for more ways to make my chicken or turkey yummy and crispy, i have modified and modified until i arrived at what i felt was better than Kfc, oh! you don't believe me...hehehe...if you doubt me just please try it out

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk 
  • ½ cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • oil for frying
  • 1 dash ground black pepper
  • 1 dash garlic powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 onion
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 2 maggi cubes 
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


1. Boil your chicken with the onion, ginger, garlic, maggi cubes, pepper and salt. (this step is optional, you can fry the chicken without cooking it first but i prefer to cook mine because i feel it makes the chicken more tasty)
2. Beat the egg in medium bowl then milk and water slowly and beat until the mixture is smooth. In the second bowl, combine the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and salt together (adjusting seasonings to your taste preferences).
3. Dip each chicken piece in the egg and milk mixture then completely coat with the dry mixture. Repeat this step. Coating the chicken twice makes it extra crispy like Kentucky Fried Chicken. (true)
4. Set each chicken piece on a plate after coating. When all pieces are coated,it is ready for frying.
5.  Heat oil in a deep fryer or in a deep pan. The oil should be just enough to cover the chicken entirely.
6. Deep fry until golden brown. Take out and put on a paper towels. Chicken is ready after five minutes.

 This recipe can be used for any part of chicken, wings, tights even with turkey and fish. I wish i can describe how delicious this chicken was, regretted not making more that day. Enjoy and you would open ur own KFC at home.
