This is a family fave, and loved by friends of the family too!
The local supermarket recently had chunky chicken pieces on sale for 99 cents a kilo- so I have a freezer full now! That made the cost of 2kgs of yummy KFC like chicken $2!! Left overs ( if there are any) get packed for school lunches with an ice brick.
It's baked not fried, and very very tasty!
Mix in a ziplock bag...
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon each of salt, basil, oregano, thyme.
2 tablespoons each of celery salt, black pepper, dry mustard, dry ginger.
4 teaspoons of garlic salt
4 tablespoons chicken stock powder - or to your taste ( I use the Massell. This sounds a lot, but try it and adjust to you liking ).
1 tablespoon paprika
I use about 2 kg of chicken pieces to a batch. DO NOT REUSE ANY LEFT OVER MIX! THROW AWAY.
Pile some plain flour into a large dinner plate. In a deep bowl, make an egg wash ( 2 eggs to about 3/4 cup water).
Roll your chicken pieces first in the flour, then dip in egg wash, then drop into the KFC mix in the zip lock bag. You can drop several piece in at once, depending on chicken size. Shake the bag well to cover chicken.
Place your coated chicken onto an oven tray lined with baking paper. I use about 3 trays. When all coated, drizzle with a bit of preferred oil. Bake in 180o oven, turning once only to brown both sides.
I use chicken drummettes and wings, as the kids prefer them. Hubby likes larger pieces. The smaller pieces cook quicker, of course, in about 30 min. Chicken is done when you pierce it and juices run clear.
