KFC Style Crispy Chicken

Ever since I saw the chicken popcorn from Taste of Pearl city, I wanted to give it a go. Mainly because this dish is hubby's favorite. Whenever we go to KFC, this is a must in our order list... He literally drools over it.
I didn't know that they could be made at home until I saw this recipe. And it was yummy, crispy in the out and juicy in the middle.

I did the frying version and made it a bit spicy too...

~*What U need*~
Boneless chicken- 1/4 kg

Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp

Chilli powder- 1/4 tsp

Garam masala- 1/2 tsp

Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp

Plain corn flakes- 50 g

Plain flour
Lemon juice- 1/2 tbsp
Egg- 1

Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp

Salt to taste

Oil for frying

How I Made It:
Clean the chicken well and drain excess water. Cut them into small pieces.

Mix the chicken with ginger garlic paste, chilli, pepper, garam masala, lemon juice and salt and marinate for atleast 1 hour.

Crush the corn flakes using your finger tips.
Beat the egg with turmeric powder and little bit of salt.
Dip the chicken pieces in flour and coat evenly. Dust of the excess flour.

Dip the flour coated chicken in egg and then roll them in cornflakes.
Repeat with all the chicken pieces. Refrigerate the cornflakes coated chicken for 1 hour.

Heat oil in a pan, shallow fry the chicken pieces until they look golden brown color.
Serve warm. We had this as a starter with chicken briyani
