About this recipe: A wonderful fried chicken dish that's packed full of flavour. Chicken breasts are coated in a chipotle-spiced mayonnaise, dredged in a Parmesan crumb and deep-fried to perfection.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 litre oil for frying
  • 110g breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • garlic salt and pepper to taste
  • 125ml mayonnaise
  • 2 tinned chipotle chillies in adobo sauce or to taste
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fat fryer or large saucepan to 190 degrees C. Combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt and pepper in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Place the mayonnaise and chipotle chillies into a liquidiser and puree until smooth. Scrape the mayonnaise mixture into a plastic bag; add the chicken breasts and coat evenly with the mayonnaise. Press the chicken breasts into the breadcrumb mixture and shake off any excess.
  3. Cook the chicken breasts in the hot oil until the breading is golden brown and the breasts are no longer pink on the inside, about 8 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read at least 74 degrees C.
