  • 4 large skinless de-boned chicken breasts
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • oil for frying


  • Heat the oil in a large, deep pot.
  • Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks.
  • Place the flour into a bowl and add the spices then whisk well to combine.
  • Place the eggs into a separate bowl and whisk well.
  • Coat the chicken first in the flour, dusting off the excess, then in the egg and again in the flour. You can repeat this step to create a thicker coating.
  • Carefully place the coated chicken in the hot oil and fry for 3-4 minutes until the chicken is crisp and golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  • Serve with fresh lemon and ketchup for dipping.
