Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2484 - Southern Fried Chicken With Homemade Gravy

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a kettle 

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Cut the chicken thighs in half

2 2484 - Southern Fried Chicken With Homemade Gravy

Add the smoked paprika, cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), ground coriander, dried oregano and chopped garlic to a bowl with the chicken thighs, 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] olive oil and a generous pinch of salt & pepper

Give everything a good mix up and set aside to marinate

 

3 2484 - Southern Fried Chicken With Homemade Gravy

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into chips

Add the chips to a baking tray with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt and pepper

Give everything a good mix up and put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until golden and crisp

4 2484 - Southern Fried Chicken With Homemade Gravy

Meanwhile, dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube and the Marmite in 250ml [450ml] boiled water – this is your chicken stock 

Heat a pot over a medium heat and add 15g [30g] butter 

Once melted, add 15g [30g] flour and stir until you're left with a sandy-paste

Add the chicken stock and cook for 5 min further or until thickened to a gravy-like consistency

5 2484 - Southern Fried Chicken With Homemade Gravy

Add the cornflour to a large bowl with the marinated chicken thighs and mix together until evenly coated 

 

6 2484 - Southern Fried Chicken With Homemade Gravy

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil (enough to cover the base of the pan) over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the coated chicken thighs and cook for 5-7 min on each side or until the chicken is crispy and cooked through – this is your Southern fried chicken

7 2484 - Southern Fried Chicken With Homemade Gravy

Whilst the chicken is cooking, top, tail, peel and grate the carrot[s]

Trim, then finely slice the spring onions

Add the grated carrot and sliced spring onion to a bowl with the mayonnaise and a pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up – this is your slaw
