marinate the chicken in butter milk for a couple of hours

I forgot to take a photo of them in the butter milk
Image

wipe off the excess butter milk and coat the chicken in flour seasoned with creole mix (extra cayenne for me please!)
Image

a quick fry - don't crowd the pan
Image

drain on paper towel
Image

I cheated with the chips (supermarket), dollop of sour cream and home made sweet chili sauce YUM!

(piggy-piggy-piggy just can't have one piece!)

Yum! That looks fantastic Milo. Here we are having vegetarian tonight :-?
We make a similar dish but dipped in plain greek yoghurt, then in breadcrumbs with parmesan and parsley.
Same coating is fantastic on fresh flathead fillets too.

You obviously like the chilli!

Love the chili!

Get on to a hot one and you can get a euphoric high out of the burn!

Best chicken ever, but I love flathead as well I'll have to give your coating a go.

Did you cut the breast meat in strips against the grain? I have found homegrown chooks can have stringy breast meat if cooked quickly.

I just trimmed to size with the grain but they were young, tender & juicy

Mmmmmmmm that looks good :thumbs:
thanks for the photos- will have to try that recipe.
What age was the chook , and what breed ?

Seeing those photos has made me think....we have a spare 7 month cockerel here...he may be a bit old for fried -might have to do him slow cooked in wine.

cheers
