This crispy homemade fried chicken uses thigh fillets cut into large pieces. It makes a great filling for Chinese bao buns, alongside some quickly made pickles. See my fried chicken bao recipe here.
- In a bowl toss the chicken with the yoghurt.
- In another bowl mix the flour, paprika, salt, potato flour, cornflour and baking powder together.
- Heat the oil in a deep fryer, if you have one, or a large saucepan.
- Once the oil is hot toss chicken pieces into the flour mixture, coat well and then deep fry for about 10 minutes until crispy. You might have to fry the chicken in two batches. Watch that the oil doesn’t get too hot or the chicken will burn.
