Using tongs, take each thigh & place into the flour mixture coating all surfaces well & put onto plate (see video below).


When oil is ready, place two pieces of chicken into the hot oil very carefully & deep fry for 3 minutes, then place onto wire rack. Fry the rest in twos making sure the oil has reached the required temperature for each batch.


When all thighs have been deep fried, place in oven & cook uncovered for 30 minutes. All ovens vary so please make sure chicken is thoroughly cooked.


Leave to rest for 5 minutes (if you can!) & enjoy this amazing fried chicken.


Be very careful with the hot oil & please do not leave unattended.
