Southern Fried Chicken & Onion Rings in Batter

Southern Fried 1


For the batter

8 heaped tablespoons flour

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

2 eggs

tiny dash Worcestershire sauce

tiny dash Louisiana hot sauce

approx 1/2 cup of water (don’t make it too thin)

1 tbsp yoghurt

Other Ingredients

Chicken breasts (cut into chunks or finger strips)

2 large onions


Put the flour, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt and Cajun seasoning in a large bowl.

Add the eggs, Worcestershire sauce and Louisiana Sauce and mix.

Add the yoghurt and then slowly add the water, until you have a smooth mixture (not too thick but not too runny.  (I use an electric whisk to remove all lumps)

Roll the chicken in some flour.  (This helps the batter stick)

Dip the floured chicken into the batter then drop into hot oil. (I deep fried them)

Fry until golden.

Follow the same process for the onion rings.
