Southern fried chicken



Kids love this and you can do it all quit rapidly once you have had the chicken in a marinade . it is the spiced milk that help the coating stick to the chicken . Not as messy as dipping in flour then egg and then breadcrumbs. So messy on the hands. This way you just dip rest and cook.

You will need to marinade the chicken

4 chicken thighs, skin off
A small bunch of oregano
6 garlic cloves,
2 shallots,
1 chilli
1 tbsp salt
Milk.

To coat the chicken
6 tbsp plain flour
½ tsp celery salt
½ tsp cayenne pepper
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp paprika

200ml vegetable oil to deep fry in.

Start by getting the chicken and put it in a bowl along with the other ingredients for the marinade. You do not need to worry to much about chopping them ruff cut and bruise them to get the flavour going .then threw in the chicken and top up with milk . then cover this and place in the fridge , best to do this a good 8 hours before you cook the chicken over night or in the morning before you go out .

Then get all the dry ingredient and mix them in a bowl . Take your chicken out of the marinade and in to the dry mix. Make sure that the chicken gets a good coating all round so that all the surface is cover with the spiced flour. If it looks like you are running out of dry mix just mix some more and add to the old mix. Then put the chicken back in the fridge for about 30 to 45 minutes

Heat the oil ready to fry and turn the oven on . Start by frying your chicken till the out side is golden brown . The finish the chicken off by putting in the oven till it is cook all the way through
