So I came across a recipe today on a thermomix recipe page. It claimed to make chicken that tasted like KFC without the deep frying, and whatever else the Colonel does to his chicken.
This was a great recipe, but it still called for shallow frying. Lately, I have been eating that much bad food, I certainly don't need a reason to eat more deep fried goodness. So if you are feeling the same way I am - give this a try - it was amazing!!
2 tablespoons salt
1.5 tablespoons black peppercorns
1.5 tablespoons dried onion
1 tablespoon dried garlic
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
1/2 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 tablespoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
350 grams plain flour
So I popped it all in a coffee grinder and grinded the hell out of it. You could probably do the same in a pestle and mortar. Then add it to 350g plain flour. Then do your usual schnitzel thing (with the egg and the flour) but do the egg wash and flour twice. And please guys, do this - dunk in the egg with one hand, dunk in the flour with the other. Seriously this will change your life!! But yes, it is still messy as, but that's what makes it great.
Once you have double dunked - egg wash flour, egg wash flour - then you have a choice: oil it or grill it. Whilst I think that deep or shallowed fried would've have been amazing, I chose the BBQ since I was cooking on it already. So straight on the weber, sprayed some oil on it and just cooked it till it looked done.
It was amazing!
Got to say I didn't make up this recipe - it came from a thermomix recipe, but I know I can't afford a thermomix so this is the cheap arse version! Enjoy!
Let me know how you guys go. Good, bad, ordinary?? Feedback would be great!
