About this recipe: Crispy, mouth-watering and juicy, are the words I would use to describe this chicken. The recipe is simple and easy. It's delicious hot or cold. Serve with a side salad or with mashed potatoes.


Serves: 12 

  • 2 (0.9-1.35kg) whole chickens, cut into pieces
  • 375g plain flour
  • 5 tablespoons seasoned salt
  • 3 tablespoons garlic granules
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 litre vegetable oil for frying

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. In a shallow dish, mix the flour, seasoned salt, garlic granules, salt and pepper. Roll or shake the chicken pieces in the flour mixture and place on a plate. Then dip each chicken piece in the egg and roll again in flour mixture.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat oil for frying. Fry coated chicken pieces in hot oil for about 5 minutes on each side. Cover frying pan and cook on lower heat for about 10 minutes. Remove cover, turn up heat and fry for 5 minutes on each side to make chicken crispy. Chicken is done when it is no longer pink inside and its juices run clear. Drain fried chicken on kitchen towels and keep warm in oven until ready to serve.

Seasoned salt

If seasoned salt is unavailable, add a pinch of each of the following to plain salt: paprika, dry mustard, dried oregano, garlic powder and onion powder.
