Fried Chicken

When ever we travel abroad, my children prefer to eat every day at KFC restaurants, they just love the crispy fried chicken that you can eat with your hands, together with greasy fries.

I usually prefer fried chicken for Passover, but my version is properly well seasoned with spices, and the taste is another league.

On Passover night, the chicken shanks are a symbol of the arm In the Seder bowl.

Whe I fry the checken shanks, my kids stand next to me and grab piece after piece and I find myself as a guard in order to keep something left for the evening. The chicken thighs are seasoned fairly and rest in the spice mixture for few hours so that the spices are absorbed into the chicken. They are deep fried for a long time until they are browned and the flavor Simply wonderful. You can of course make it during the year and make it from all parts of the chicken and not just thighs. It's important to cut the chicken into small pieces and cut slits in the meat so that the spices will soak in and the chicken be well cooked. Serve with some fries or rice and a salad on the side and you have a perfect meal.
