Crispy Chicken Fry

Crispy Chicken Fry, yes! It’s chicken again, Yoho! But this one adds more crunch. Why? The crunchiness is because I used oats as a coating which is healthy and adds more fiber to your diet.

Vegetable oil – as required (see under directions, point 4)

5. Once you have coated all the chicken pieces , heat a heavy-bottomed pot containing  oil up-to 2 inches.

6. Drop the chicken into the oil one by one in batches. Make sure you do not overcrowd it ( I fried 4 – 5 pieces at a time ). Fry on medium for 5 minutes turning sides in between.
