30 Minutes. Because we all love fried chicken!

Serves 2 


400g free range chicken tenders
2 tablespoons BBQ spice
1/2 cup plain flour
1 free range egg
1 baby gem lettuce
1.5 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 cucumber
1 lemon

Prepare chicken
Place flour, salt, pepper and BBQ spice in one bowl. Whisk egg in another bowl. Coat chicken in egg first then the flour mixture. Place on a plate and set aside.

Make slaw
Finely slice baby gem lettuce and grate cucumber. Combine in a bowl with mayo, juice of the lemon, salt and pepper.

Cook chicken
Heat a fry pan or wok on a high heat with a generous amount of olive oil (approx. 0.5cm deep). Shake off excess flour before you place the chicken into the pan, making sure you don’t overcrowd the pieces. Turn chicken once golden (approx. 3 minutes on each side). Remove from pan and set aside on paper towel. Repeat with remaining chicken.
