I don't eat fried chicken often, but when I do, I need that flavourrrr and the store-bought fried chicken will definitely not do it for me hahah. Cornflake cereal is something most people have in their houses, with it, the chicken just has the extra crisp! you'll definitely love the burst of flavours you'll get on the first bite!
Hope you enjoy!
What you need!
4 chicken legs (4 thighs + 4 drumsticks)
10g Cilantro (chopped)
2tbsp Lime juice
2tbsp Soy sauce
1tbsp Sambal oelek
1tbsp Montreal steak spices
1tbsp Chili powder
½tbsp Garlic powder
1/2cup All-purpose flour
6cups Corn Flakes
1 Lemon (only the zestes)
1tbsp Crushed chilli peppers
1tbsp Garlic powder
1/2 tbsp Chili powder
1/2tbsp Onion salt

*For this recipe it is possible to use the air fryer, So you will not need to preheat your oven or use any frying oil. I will put an asterisks (*) nest to the steps you can skip!
*-Start by preheating the oven at 350F.
-In a bowl, put the chicken and all the marinade ingredients.
-Mix and make sure the chicken is well coated.
-In another bowl, crush the cornflakes with your hands.
-Add all the seasoning ingredients in the cornflakes and mix well.
-Now take another bowl, whisk the milk and eggs together.
-Finally, do the flour and cornstarch mix.
-Place your bowls in the following order: marinated chicken, flour+cornstarch, milk+eggs, Cornflakes mix.
-Coat one chicken with the flour mix
-Quickly dip it in the milk and eggs mixture.
-Now put in the cornflakes mix.
-Quickly put back in the milk+eggs mix.
-Now back in the cornflakes.
-Make sure it's well coated and set aside.
-Do the same with 7 other pieces.
-If you have an air fryer, put the chicken in there for 30 minutes.
*-Now that they're all done, heat up some frying oil (350F).
*-When the oil is hot enough, put the pieces of chicken and leave until they're golden and crispy on all sides.
*-Get a tray with a grid, to put the chicken.
*-Put in the oven for 30 minutes.
-Make sure it's cooked.
-If it's cooked, you're good to go! Enjoy!
Hope everyone loves it! Again, chicken is sooo versatile, you can put it over waffles, next to some rice (or cauliflower rice like I did),with potatoes, or even simply a salad! If you want more ideas or have any questions, feel free to "DM" me on instagram!
FYI, If you don't like fried chicken, or if you are on a diet, you can also try chicken breast with this marinade and just cook it it however you want to cook it!
