Servings : Serves 5-6
Chicken with a crispy coating and moist tender meat, perfect for picnics and healthier than the fried version.
- 1 kg chicken thighs and drumsticks (with the skin on)
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tsp. garlic paste
- 1 tsp. paprika powder
- 1/2 tsp. chilli powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 1 cup fresh/dry breadcrumbs
- 1 handful fresh herbs, chopped fine
- oil for greasing the pan
Put the mayonnaise, garlic paste and all the spices into a bowl and season lightly with some salt and pepper. Then mix it all well. In a separate bowl, add the herbs to the breadcrumbs plus a teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
Now dip one chicken piece at a time first into the mayonnaise mixture and then into the breadcrumbs mixture making sure to coat all the sides. Put them into a container and refrigerate for at least an hour or up to overnight for the flavours to infuse.
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a baking tray lightly and then place the chicken pieces with the skin side facing up. Bake for 20 minutes and then turn the heat down to 180 C and continue to roast for another 20 minutes. You can then reduce the heat to 120 C and continue baking for another 15 minutes to ensure the chicken is falling off the bone.
Serve with a salad or accompaniments of your choice.
Asak fauzia…mine is a big
Asak fauzia…mine is a big family…I wanna make this but with 18 to 20 legs lol:) so approximately how much mayo should I be using?? TIA.
Just to confirm, 20 legs
Just to confirm, 20 legs meaning the full leg (thigh and drumstick)? That will make it 40 pieces right? If so them multiply the ingredients by 4 as the recipe is for 5 full legs (thigh and drumsticks) which is 10 pieces total.
