Take 5 for Students: Southern Fried Chicken

Eggs, chili sauce, self-rising flour, chicken, oil.

Here is a fabulous way to feed quite a few people with very inexpensive chicken niblets (basically the wings). I used this for a party recently and everyone was very happy, even though they never actually saw a great deal of chicken meat.

In a bowl, whisk 3 eggs with ¼ cup sweet or hot chili sauce (or even barbecue sauce), and a tablespoon of water. In another bowl, put in a cup of self-rising flour (you may need to add more later). Add salt and pepper to the flour and mix it about.

Tip the chicken niblets into the egg and stir to coat, then toss them into the flour. Deep fry in oil for about 10-15 minutes.

Be sure to take a piece out and check that it is cooked through to the bone before you serve.

Notes about deep frying:

Use a deep, heavy pot so as to allow for the oil to bubble up quite a bit. I often use soy or canola oil. Don’t leave the oil once you have turned it on – only crazy people leave the scene at this point in time. When you take the chicken bits out, drain them on paper towels or in a metal sieve. Watch the temperature of the oil – it should be hot enough to prevent excessive absorption, but not so hot that the coating gets too dark before the inside is cooked.

You may never visit the Colonel again!
