Instructions

  • 1. Start by combining all of the ingredients for the wet mix into a large bowl. Mix well then add in the chicken thighs. Cover with cling film and marinate in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes up to overnight.
  • In a separate large bowl, mix together the dry mix ingredients and set aside.
  • Dip the marinated chicken into the dry mix, ensuring an even coating. For extra crunch, repeat this step 2-3 times, alternating between wet and dry mix.
  • Prepare your deep fryer or large saucepan with neutral cooking oil and heat it to 175°C.
  • In batches, fry the chicken for 5-10 minutes until it’s fully cooked and boasts a glorious golden brown hue.
  • While the chicken sizzles, mix mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, and sriracha in a separate bowl to create the flavorful sauce. Set it aside.
  • Drain the crispy chicken on paper towels and serve it up with the sauce for dipping. Dive in and enjoy the feast!
