Have you ever wondered how the combination of just flour, salt, pepper and chicken can taste so good?
I have, many a times, whenever I happen to snack at KFC. Back in 2000 when I came to US for the first time, I was so much addicted to this food, that this became the evening snack on the way back home from work. Ahh..those carefree days...:)
Last week I made these for my kid. Something interesting for him to eat as he was giving me a hard time, literally eating nothing for the past two weeks because of cough and cold. He seemed to like it and had a few pieces, which made me happy..:)
Boneless chicken pieces , cut into thin strips
salt and pepper as required
2 cups all purpose flour
Marinate the chicken with little salt and pepper.
Break an egg in a wide bowl, add salt and pepper, and whisk well
Take the flour in a plate .
Heat oil in a saucepan for frying.
Dip the chicken in egg , and the coat with flour, again dip in the egg and coat with the flour.
Drop in the hot oil and fry till golden.
Serve with your favorite sauce.
Dipping the chicken twice in egg gives a nice crunchy layer, but its up to the individual's taste. To make it more spicy, you can also add some hot sauce to the egg.
