Are you looking for a finger-licking, homemade delight that won't keep you in the kitchen for hours and your customers returning for more? You've stumbled upon the perfect recipe! Our Spicy Fried Chicken promises not just a culinary spectacle but a rapid one, thanks to some savvy shortcuts we've included.

Heat is a subjective sensation; what sets one mouth aflame might warm another. While you may not find KFC's hot wings overwhelmingly spicy, they offer a subtle tingling sensation accompanied by that vibrant red hue that suggests a kick. Our recipe aims for a moderate level of heat, but don't hesitate to tweak it to your liking.

Clever Shortcuts

Chilli Paste - Spare yourself the hassle of grinding chillies; pick up some pre-made chilli paste for a quick alternative.

Black Pepper - While chilli brings a lingering warmth, black pepper delivers an immediate punch of heat.

Garlic Paste - Cooking garlic mellows its robust, spicy flavour, offering instead a creamy, nutty taste that complements the spices beautifully.

Tabasco Sauce - This is your shortcut to a well-marinated chicken. The Tabasco sauce's acid helps the marinade penetrate deeper and tenderises the chicken a bit. Feel free to substitute it with your favourite hot sauce, like Sriracha.

Ceres Alpha Coater - This isn't just a coating; it's a revolution in crispiness! With its special high-amylase starches, the Ceres Alpha Coater ensures your chicken will be incredibly crispy without any complicated kitchen alchemy. Plus, it's allergen-free, making it a crowd-pleaser.
