I find this crumb fried chicken very easy, yummy and done in minutes. I like to use powdered cornflakes for coating the chicken as they turn out very crisp and is also healthy. This chicken marinated in ginger garlic paste, flour and egg mixture rolled on bread crumbs and deep fried is simply mouth-watering.

Hi Vandhana, This dish looks delicious. While marinating in addition to your ingredients, you can add soysauce, tomato sauce, garam masala and curry leaves. This will add more flavour.

Hi Vandana, I've always wanted to make crumb fried chicken and finally took the big step after seeing your recipe. It's so simple and the cornflakes really made it more crispy and delicious. My daughter loved it and is already clamoring for more. Thanks for making me her hero. You see I'm her non-veg cook as my wife is a vegetarian.

Thks Sunitha, the crunchy flavor is one that I love.It is best when hot and crispy and makes for a wonderful appetizer , you may also serve it as a side dish. Thks Sanghi, will try your additions next time. I use soya and tomato sauce for my chicken lollipop recipe and it does turn out gr8. Disappears in no time at all:)

You can find breadcrumbs in any supermarket grocery store,,, but another good way to get breadcrumbs is to make them on your own by simply taking ANY KIND OF BREAD-cutting into cubes- putting them in the oven at 300 degrees until golden brown crushing them, then adding whatever DRY ingrendients you find enjoyable such as garlic powder + onion powder+ cayenne and ect. You can store them in the freezer so that they can be accessable and eaten indefinately::)
