Fried Chicken Meal Ala KFC

A few days ago, we had craving for KFC. Since the price of KFC has gone up (I think) and there is no HALAL KFC over here, we decided to make our own version of fried chicken meal ala KFC. Here is how I made my Fried Chicken Meal ala KFC.

Fried Chicken
  • Pieces of chicken (washed and rinsed)
  • *Kikkoman soya sauce
  • *Turmeric
  • *Ground pepper
  • *Salt
  • Kentucky flour (or any tempura flour that you have)

  • Chili powder

  • Oil
  1. Marinade the chickens with the (*) ingredients for an hour. (You can also put some fresh milk to tender the chicken).
  2. In a clean seam plastic bag, add the Kentucky flour, paprika, chili powder, salt and ground black pepper. Close the seam and shake well. (You can also add some curry powder if you like).
  3. In a small bowl, add the egg and beat gently with a fork.
  4. Remove a piece of chicken and add into the egg, let it well coated. Then, drop into the flour mixture bag. Close the bag and shake so that the chicken well coated.
  5. Repeat the step 4 again to the same chicken to make the coating thicker.
  6. Drop in a hot oil. Deep fry until golden.
  7. Served it hot with mashed potato and coleslaw.
