chicken snack recipes

Ingredients

  • 4 brioche mini burger or hot dog buns
  • 4 large gherkins, sliced in half, lengthwise
  • 4 iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese

For the fried chicken

  • 4 chicken thighs, skin removed
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ cup self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp tabasco sauce
  • Vegetable oil for deep drying

For the chipotle mayo (makes about  1-1/3 cups)

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • a pinch of salt
  • 250ml (1 cup) oil (blend of 80ml olive oil and 170ml vegetable oil works well)
  • 2-3 chipotle chillies in adobo sauce

Method

Fried chicken

  1. Fill a large saucepan one-third full with vegetable oil and place it over medium heat for the oil to heat up.
  2. In a large bowl, lightly whisk the eggs with 2 tablespoons of water and tabasco sauce.
  3. Pat the chicken dry and place into a plastic bag with the onion and garlic powders. Shake well.
  4. Remove the chicken and place it into the egg mixture. Coat it well with the egg and then put in a bag with the flour. Shake well again.
  5. Check that the oil if it is at the right temperature by dipping a wooden spoon handle in the oil. If the oil bubbles around the handle, it’s hot enough. Slowly lower the chicken pieces into the oil and cook for 5-6 minutes, flipping over every 2 minutes. Remove and place directly onto paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
  6. Place cheese slices on top of each piece of fried chicken to melt. Season immediately with salt.

Chipotle mayo

  2. Give the processor a quick wipe.
  3. In the same processor, pulse the egg, mustard, lemon juice and salt until well combined.
  4. With the processor running, add the oil gradually in a slow steady stream, until the mayonnaise is of the desired consistency. Check for seasoning. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  5. To assemble the burger, cut the brioche roll in half. Lightly toast, cut side down under a grill or on a dry frying pan.
  6. Add the cheesy, fried chicken, gherkin, lettuce and top them with chipotle mayo. Serve hot.

Beetroot and oatmeal roti and jerked chicken wraps

By Chef Shantanu Gupte, FOODFOOD

chicken snack recipes

Ingredients

For Roti

  • 1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
  • ½ cup oatmeal
  • Water (Using yoghurt or milk will give you super soft chapatis)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbs vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • 2 tbs beet juice

The recipe is enough for roughly 12 chapattis

For the jerk marinade

  • 1 big bunch spring onions, roughly chopped
  • thumb-sized piece ginger, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • ½ a small onion
  • 3 chilies, deseeded if you want less heat
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground allspice

Method

1. To make the jerk marinade, combine all the ingredients in a food processor along with 1 tsp salt and blend to a purée. If you’re having trouble getting it to blend, just keep turning off the blender, stirring the mixture, and trying again. Eventually it will start to blend up. Don’t be tempted to add water, as you want a thick paste.

2. Taste the jerk mixture for seasoning – it should taste pretty salty, but not unpleasantly, puckering salty. You can now throw in more chilies if it’s not spicy enough. If it tastes too salty and sour, try adding in a bit more brown sugar until the mixture tastes well balanced.

3. Make a few slashes in the chicken thighs and pour the marinade over the meat, rubbing it into all the crevices. Cover and leave to marinate overnight in the fridge.

4. If you want to barbecue your chicken, get the coals burning 1 hour before you’re ready to cook. Authentic jerked meats are not exactly grilled as we think of grilling, but sort of smoke-grilled. To get a more authentic jerk experience, add some wood chips to your barbecue, and cook your chicken over slow, indirect heat for 30minutes. To cook in the oven, heat to 180C.

5. Put the chicken pieces in a roasting tin with the lime halves and cook for 45 minutes, until tender and cooked through.

6. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the roti by forming dough out of the roti ingredients.

7. Stuff the chicken filling in the roti, along with your favourite salad greens and roll to form a wrap.
