Nannas Recipes in 4 Sentences...(Slightly) Healthier Fried Chicken...

This fried chicken recipe does not use breadcrumbs, so the ability of the crumbs to absorb the oil, is negated. Hence, this is a slightly healthier recipe.
Healthier Fried Chicken...
Mix 4 tablespoons of cornflour in a bowl with enough water to make a thin batter about the consistency of milk, and add a teaspoon of Smoky Paprika, 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin and a bit of salt and pepper. Heat a wok or frypan with a layer of oil about 3cms (3/4") deep over a high hotplate, then dip chicken pieces (we prefer boneless chicken thighs or drumsticks) into the batter and drop them carefully into the pan. Cook about 4 minutes on each side, turning once, before removing to absorbent kitchen paper or clean tea towels to drain the oil from them. Serve immediately with baked potato and coleslaw or for extra crispiness, dip the chicken into the batter a second time, and fry again until golden brown.
