You must try this Spiced Fried Chicken. The herbs and spices help constructed the juicy and flavourful chicken. This chicken dish usually accompanies our Chicken Biryani. If I have the leftover marinated in the Tupperware in my fridge, then I love to fry them as snacks in the afternoon. My husband and Yaseen love to wrap them in the homemade fresh naan and drizzle with ketchup. My sister and I love it over salad or wrap in lettuces with some chili sauce.

If I have leftover marinated chicken that hasn’t been cook, they’re usually kept it in Tupperware in refrigerator up to 1 day or even freeze for a week.
This spiced fried chicken is really crispy and flavourful from the outside and the inside is actually tender and almost melts in your month. We are just happy with this recipe, and you will, too 🙂
Have a nice day,
