- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1.5 tablespoons black peppercorns, whole
- 1.5 tablespoons dried onion flakes
- 1 tablespoon dried garlic granules
- 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
- 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1/2 tablespoon yellow mustard seeds
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
- 350 grams plain flour
- 2 chicken breasts, diced into small pieces
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten in a bowl
- oil, for frying
Place all spices and herbs into tmx. Blitz on speed 10 for 30 seconds. Scrape down. Repeat. You are wanting a fine grind. Add flour and blitz on speed 10 for 20 seconds. Have a taste of your flour. You can tweak the quantities used to suit your tastes. Add additional flavour of needed and blitz again on speed 10 for 30 seconds to ensure its well combined. If you feel the flavours are too intense you can add more flour. Pour 1/3 of the flour onto a plate. Coat chicken pieces in egg and then flour. I then put them in egg and then flour again. This gives it a real crispy coating. Double coating is the key. Place oil into pan on a medium heat. You need enough oil to shallow fry your pieces.
Fry about 10 little pieces at a time. Don't overload the pan. Cook until white and cooked through. The time will vary on the size of your pieces but it was about 3 mins each side. Just watch them.Drain on paper towel.
If you cant have eggs in your house buttermilk is a great substitute.
Rice flour can be used in place of plain flour. Results will differ slightly.
The coating is enough for three meals. Trust me, you want this coating in your pantry so stick to the full recipe and store the excess in an airtight container.
