Oven-Fried Chicken

These are full of flavour and zing but without the heavy, greasy aftermath of deep-fried chicken.

The way my whole family get excited for this Oven-Fried Chicken reminds me of when it was KFC night when I was a kid. But now we get mouthfuls of delicious flavour without that gross feeling afterwards. Blah.

And one of my biggest loves, no mess from frying either! 

The mix of flour, spices and butter gives a fine crispy layer to the succulent chicken, and a burst of flavour with every bite. The little kick of curry is what makes this so delicious in my opinion.

Super easy to make, serve with oven-fried potato and sweet potato, steamed green beans and a green salad. Serve leftovers hot or cold the night after, or do as I do and pop in the kids lunchboxes the next day.
