Thyme Turmeric Deep Fried Coated Chicken

deep fried coated chicken

Most Sundays, after church, we would go out to lunch or i would drag my girls to the market :). Today, I decided to treat them to this recipe for home made deep fried coated chicken!




Cut the chicken into pieces and bring to boil in a saucepan. Let it cook for about 45 minutes then drain out the broth and set aside. This broth can be stored in the refrigerator and used much like vegetable stock. Or you can do what most Kenyans would do and drink it as a soup. My munchkin loves this chicken soup.


In a bowl, beat the eggs and season with salt. In another bowl, mix breadcrumbs thyme and turmeric. Take a piece of chicken, dip it in the egg mixture then roll it in the breadcrumb mixture.

Tip: Use one hand to dip in the eggs and the other hand to roll the chicken in the breadcrumbs. This helps to avoid getting your hands too messy.


Switch on your fryer which has vegetable oil. Place three or four pieces in the deep frying tray then gently dip them into the deep fryer. Close the lid on the fryer and allow to cook for 5-8 minutes. When they are ready, take them out and place on a serviette lined plate or bowl to soak out any excess oil. Repeat until all the chicken is done and serve with a meal of your choice such as fries or potato wedges.

I had a really hard time warding of my daughters from the kitchen as they kept sneaking in and pinching pieces of this crunchy chicken delight!
