Krunchy Funky Chicken – yes think of that acronym (KFC) that appears in most suburbs/towns/cities! A few that have tasted have said, “WOW we won’t be going back there anytime soon!” So if you are looking for an alternative to the Colonel’s Chicken then you must try this recipe. These Thermomix Krunchy Funky Chicken will have you avoiding the long drive through queues and enjoying dinner at home. 🙂
How do you come up with the recipe Leonie? Yes I thought that you would ask! Well it just so happens that in our ThermoFunkies member facebook group someone shared a link to a recipe. We all had a giggle that it was leaked by the Colonel’s nephew – and quite honestly if the internet says so – then it must be true! lol!! But it got me thinking what would be the harm in giving it a go. I had just bought an Air Fryer so it would be a perfect test dish for it.
Now I am not going to say that this recipe is the original Colonel’s secret herb and spices – because obviously if it’s on the internet then it’s no secret 😀 but it is a great alternative when you want to serve up a Kentucky fried chicken dish to the family.
We love it with my potato garlic mash and a Greek salad and it’s a great dinner option when you don’t want to do dinner as it’s so quick! I am yet to make an Original Chicken Cheese and Bacon Burger :p but it is on the list to give a go when I feel the need for a little Krunchy Funky Chicken! 😀
Let me know what your family thinks!

Make sure you set aside half the batch of spice mix before you start because once you roll the chicken in it you wont be able to reuse it.
