Notes

Chef Bob has made some very easy soul comfort food for you to enjoy, however when deep frying there are some very important points to take note of. Please ensure that when you are frying anything in hot oil you are very careful to ensure you fry in a safe environment. The oil should be hot and clean, if not the food will absorb too much oil making it an unhealthy dish. If the oil is too hot, the chicken will brown too quickly on the outside and still be raw in the middle. After the chicken is taken out of the oil it should be placed directly on to a thick paper kitchen towel to absorb any unwanted oil.

Happy Cooking!
