A way to create a lovely, crispy, KFC style chicken without all the fat!
Fairly recently my husband and I got stuck in terrible traffic on a long road trip, and had the choice of McDonalds, Harvester or KFC. As we wanted to be quick I said I fancied trying KFC- I hadn’t had it since I was a kid when it was a big treat that we only ever had with my Uncle and cousins. I could have gone for a healthier rice box but I was really curious to see if the chicken was as good as I remembered… it tasted really good and I could see how you could get addicted to it, but afterwards I felt really queasy and I think it must have been the amount of fat and grease in it- particularly since being on Slimming World I just don’t eat oily fatty food like that any more. It’s the crunchy, spicy coating that tastes so nice (and I’m sure to an extent the fat!) so I thought I’d have a go at making something similar but much healthier.
The weetabix do a great job of providing a crunchy coating, and I think this mix of herbs and spices works really well. It might look like a long list, but it would be so easy to make up your own ‘KFC spice mix’ so it’s ready the next time you need it, and then it would be a really quick meal!
