This is the season for some outings and some private dinners 😉 … and some… *coughs* well, the month of November will bear me witness. I nor fit shout! If you love KFC crispy chicken, then you will dance to the moon because I am bringing it to your kitchen, made by you with tender loving care and served to your loved ones with pride. You can wink at your boyfriend, fiancé, husband and loved ones saying, “Oh yes I made this from the scratch”. 🙂
Valentine’s day is around the corner and I believe this recipe can be teamed with several main dishes…rice dishes, pasta dishes, chips etc. You pick your main and wow that guy/lady. If by November you look rounded and huge please don’t say it’s this recipe. Confess the truth! Well, the maternity ward shall set you free. *hehe*
Deep fry in hot oil over medium heat on both sides for 15-20 minutes. Then drain on a paper towel. Alternatively, you can spray some oil on it and bake in an oven. If you are a health freak. If you need to spray and cannot find the store bough cans, pour olive oil in a properly washed container with a spray nozzle and use.
Have fun! 🙂
PS: Please use the soft broiler chicken, not the hard native fowls.
