KFC Chicken at Home کےایف سی چکن

KFC Chicken at Home
It was the start of 90's when there was no restaurant of KFC in Pakistan. My Classmate Mr. Tariq Naeem was the  First Food Technologist who was appointed by KFC Pakistan for their First restaurat in Karachi in early 90's. So I dedicate my this recipe to Tariq Naeem who is in London nowadays working with Mars Candy Europe.

  • Chicken pieces 8
  • Oil for frying
  • Egg beaten 1
  • Corn Flakes  coarsely crushed  2 cup
  • Maida (Wheat Starch) 1/2 Cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Chinese salt 1 teaspoon
  • Black pepper powder 1/2 teaspoon
  • Red Chilli powder 1/4 teaspoon
  • Garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon
  • Ginger powder 1/4 teaspoon
  • Oregano powder 1/4 teaspoon
  • Rosemarry powder 1/4 teaspoon
  • Basil powder 1/4 teaspoon

  • Add all spices to maida and mix well.
  • Apply oil with brush to chicken pieces and coat with spice mix.
  • Now dip in beaten egg and apply a coat of crushed corn flakes.
  • Fry coated chicken pieces in oil till tender.
  • Serve with French fries and Tomato Ketchup/Chilli garlic sauce.
  • 1. You can steam cook chicken pieces before coating to reduce frying time and light golden colour.
  • 2. At KFC pressure cooker/fryers are used therefore the colour and cooking time can be varied at home.
  • 3.  Corn Flakes are used to give texture like KFC chicken when using skinless chicken pieces. I used Skinless Chicken in my recipe.
