Crispy Popcorn Chicken


I won't say this is the exact recipe from KFC or Mc donald's but something very similar to that.  Your kids are going to love you if you make them this  crispy chicken.  Probably last week sometime I made this recipe, my little one still keeps asking everyday, Ayeesha did u you made the crispy chicken today.  Yeah! my both little princess calls me as Ayeesha :-(  they never call me as amma or maama.  Anyway that's  a different story , let's come back to the recipe, this is not only something special with kids, grownups also love to munch this.  Before taking this picture I finished almost 5 pieces from the bowl.  You can serve these as a snack or as a side to accompany pizza or burger.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes( approximately)
Serves: 4 Hungry kids

Ingredients:
Boneless chicken- 1/2 kg
Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
Chilli powder- 1/2 tsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1 tsp
Plain corn flakes- 100 g
Plain flour- to coat the chicken pieces
Lemon juice- 1/2 tbsp
Egg- 1
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Salt as required
Oil for frying

Method:
Wash the chicken well and cut them into small pieces.  Marinate the chicken with ginger garlic paste, chilli, pepper, garam masala, lemon juice and salt for 1 hour.  Crush the corn flakes using your finger tips.  Beat the egg with turmeric powder and little bit of salt.  Coat the chicken pieces in flour and dust of the excess flour.  Dip the flour coated chicken in egg and then roll them in cornflakes.  Repeat with all the chicken pieces.  Place the cornflakes coated chicken in container and keep it in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
 Heat oil in a pan, shallow fry the chicken pieces in medium to low heat until they look golden brown colour in outside.  Serve warm with ketchup.

Note:
You can also avoid frying and bake it in the oven for 15 minutes on each side at 200 degree Celsius.
