Breadcrumb coated

My mil's recipe that she shared with me. Breadcrumb coated fried chicken. 

I seldom use breadcrumb in my kitchen so it was quite new thing for me. I remember I used breadcrumbs for croquette and fish fillets, but many years ago. Hardly use breadcrumbs in my recipe. 

Anyway, going back to my mil's fried chicken, she bought a kilo of deboned chicken chops from Emart hypermarket one weekend. And bought 2 packs of breadcrumbs (white and yellow) and mixed them together. 

And here is the recipe of her fried chicken thighs. They turned out crispy and crunchy outside yet moist and tender meat inside. I like that!!

9 pieces of deboned chicken thighs
Breadcrumbs, enough to coat all the thighs
Cornflour for coating
2 eggs,  beaten 
Cooking oil for deep frying
Salt and pepper for seasoning

1. Season the chicken thighs after cleaning them for few minutes. Then coat them evenly with cornflour. 
2. In a bowl of beaten egg, coated the chicken thigh one by one. Then in another bowl of breadcrumb, coated the chicken thigh one by one evenly. 
3. In a hot wok, heat up cooking oil for deep frying. Add in checked thighs in batches, not over crowd them. Flip to the other side during cooking. Drain the oil and once cool, chop the meat and serve!!

Wow! So nice of your mother in law to share the recipe with you. So will you use breadcrumbs for deep fried chicken in future? If you eat bread daily, you can use the remaining bread to make breadcrumbs so no need to buy breadcrumbs.

I always use breadcrumbs when comes to fry chicken, especially when want to cook with Japanese curry.

That is delicious! I have never used breadcrumbs before. Up till now, I still enjoy crispy fried chicken and I will eat that from time to time.

I prefer breadcrumb coated to batter coated anytime. Don't have to buy special bread crumbs - just use cream crackers or cheese crackers and pound till crumbs/dust and use that for the coating. Much nicer because of the added taste.

I hardly use breadcrumbs too. I try to avoid frying stuff in hot oil. Most of my frying is done by air fryer.

They look so beautifully golden brown and crunchy.
