Once you try this, you won’t want to make it any other way. I have now made up a jar of mixed seeds specifically for this recipe as I make this on a regular basis. There is no much flavour and crunch and they go so well with a bit of mayo or lemon juice. Sometimes I serve these with just a green salad, or sometimes potato wedges.
Note – These are not my recipes, and have been taken directly from the authors cook books.
4 x Skinless chicken breast (chopped into strips),
50g Plain flour,
2 x Eggs (lightly beaten),
80g Panko crumbs,
60g White sesame seeds,
25g Black sesame seeds,
40g Sunflower seeds,
2 x tbsp coriander seeds,
1 x tsp Ground turmeric,
Half tsp Cayenne pepper,
Sunflower oil to fry
1 x Lemon (quartered),
Salt & pepper to taste.
In a clean bowl, add the flour, a little salt and pepper,
In another bowl add the beaten eggs,
In the third bowl add the panko, seeds, turmeric, cayenne and a little salt,
Dip each piece of chicken into the flour, then into the egg and finally into the seed mix, repeat for all the chicken,
In a large frying pan add enough oil to shallow fry the chicken and once hot start adding the chicken,
Cooking time will be between 5-6 minutes, however you are looking for a nice golden colour,
As each piece of chicken is cooked, lay out on some kitchen towel to soak up any excess oil,
When ready to serve, add a little squeeze of lemon.
