Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I used 8 chicken thighs total weight 1.7K and the only change I would make would be to half the amount of flour mix as I had heaps left over which I threw out as it had had raw chicken in it but the chicken was beautifully crisp and full of flavour, I baked it at 175C for 30 minutes and the chicken was lovely and moist and the coating had a good crunch as you ate the chicken. Thank you Kittencal made for Alphabet Soup tag game.
