1 tbs salt

1 egg

1 1/4 tbs cornstarch/corn flour

1 cup crushed plain cornflakes or panko bread crumbs or plain crackers

2. Add the egg and cornstrach and make sure it is evenly distributed in the chicken mix.

3. Add the crushed cornflakes/breadcrumbs and make sure it’s mixed well.

4. Heat about 1 1/2 cups of oil in a deep pan.

5. Drop about a teaspoon-size of the chicken mixture and fry until golden brown.
