  • 5 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 200ml olive oil + 2tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, halved

  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced

Method:

  1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Coat chicken pieces in flour, then dip in beaten egg, then coat in flour again.
  3. Heat olive oil and garlic in a frying pan over medium heat. When fragrant, add chicken pieces.
  4. Fry the chicken pieces, turning a few times until cooked through and crispy. Set onto a plate.
