Fried chicken

Easy, make-at-home fried chicken.
Servings 2
Prep Time 3 hrs
Cook Time 30 mins


  • 2 cup Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Cayenne
  • Half tsp Garlic salt
  • Half tsp Salt
  • 5/6 Chicken thighs
  • Enough to cover chicken Nut oil or vegetable shortening
  • 2/3 pints Whole milk


  • Tenderise 5/6 chicken thighs in whole milk (and some garlic and herbs) for a few hours.
  • Pat dry, dip in beaten egg and then into a mix of two cups flour, tsp cayenne (a substitute for smoked paprika, only because I’m not a fan), a generous half tsp garlic salt and same of normal salt.
  • Deep fry in vegetable shortening or nut oil at 170 for 12/13 minutes and then same time in oven at 180 (the oven bit isn’t conventional but I find it crisps up just as well and is far less greasy).
