Pritesh Mody talks Fried Chicken!

  • 6 Pieces of bone-in and skin-on Chicken Thighs
  • 30g World of Zing Texas Hot Spice Blend
  • 4 tablespoons of cider vinegar
  • 150g Polenta
  • 150g Buckwheat
  • 150g Panko or regular Breadcrumbs
  • 100g of plain flour
  • Salt and Pepper

Oven Fried Chicken

Method

  • Marinade the Chicken in the spice blend and cider vinegar for at between 1 hour and 12 hours
  • Preheat the oven at 200 degrees
  • Cook the chicken, skin side down for 20 minutes
  • Create a paste with the flour and around 100ml of water.  You want a yogurt-like consistency.  Season with a couple of generous pinches of salt and pepper.
  • Mix the Polenta with the Breadcrumbs in a large bowl or plate, and season generously so that you can see specs of black pepper in the mix and taste the salt
  • Once the chicken has cooked for 20minutes, remove it from the oven and put in a plate
  • Grease the baking tray with 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Return the chicken skin-side down to the baking tray. Cook for 15minutes, then turn them over and cook for a further 15minutes, until the coating is golden and the chicken is cooked.
  • Serve with Coleslaw, some Spicy BBQ Sauce and the feeling of satisfaction that you’ve managed to cook healthy ‘fried’ chicken!
