Easy Spicy Fried Chicken.


One chicken.

Two eggs.

Two packs of chief eleven herbs and spices.

Two teaspoons of paprika.

Two teaspoons of cayenne pepper.

One teaspoon of lemon pepper.

Coconut for frying.


Begin by washing the chicken properly with lime to remove the freshness and then cut it into suitable pieces.  Then season with one pack of eleven herbs and spices, one teaspoon of paprika, one teaspoon of cayenne pepper and leave to marinate for one hour.

Next in a large bowl, beat the eggs in a shallow dish or bowl.  In another bowl combine the half pack of eleven herbs and spices.  (store away the remaining half pack for another day).  Add the herbs and spices, one teaspoon of paprika, one teaspoon of cayenne pepper and one teaspoon of lemon pepper and then add the flour to the bowl of spices and combine well.

Dip each piece of chicken into the beaten egg and drag it through the flour mixture until well coated.  Repeat the action once more.

Fill a large pot or deep fryer half full with oil and heat to 350 degrees farenheit.  Cook in batches.  Gently place the chicken parts in and fry until dark and crisp.  Fry on one side is golden brown, then turn and brown the other side until the chicken is no longer pink inside and its juices run clear.

Note: the thighs and legs will take longer to cook.  About 15 minutes – than the breast and wings which will take about 10 minutes.

Remove from heat, drain on paper towels and serve!
