Prep Time 15 minutes

Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 1 kg chicken drumsticks, thighs and/or wings
  • 300 ml buttermilk or full cream milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp chilli powder optional
  • oil for deep frying

Flour coating mix

  • 450 g self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp sweet paprika powder
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp chilli powder optional


  • In a large bowl, marinate your chicken pieces with the buttermilk, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper and optional ½ tsp chilli powder.
  • Refrigerate the marinated chicken for at least 1 hour or overnight for more flavour.
  • In another large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the flour coating mix thoroughly and transfer the coating mix onto a large plate or tray.
  • Take the chicken out of the fridge and coat them in the flour mix. Remove any excess flour and place on a rack or tray.
  • In a large pot, heat some oil for deep frying on medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, slowly put the chicken pieces one by one and cook for 12–15mins, depending on the size of the chicken.
  • Remove the fried chicken and let rest on a rack for 5–10mins and then enjoy!



To check if the oil is ready, place a wooden chopstick or spoon into the hot oil. If small bubbles come up, the oil is hot enough for frying!
