Double Dipped Fried Chicken

Who doesn’t love a bargain bucket of chicken from KFC, (other American State styled, hot fat cooked poultry establishments are available).

Well this is AFC, Ades Fried Chicken. Double dipped for extra batter and double fried for extra crispiness. Now you know it just isn’t going to get any better than that.


Fried chicken in my eyes has to be full of flavor and have a good crunch to the coating, so after watching a few YouTube clips and trying out a couple of recipes, and tweaking them a little, I came up with this recipe.

You are going to love it, your family will love it, and your friends will keep turning up when your frying.

Why not do some onion rings at the same time. just do the same with the onion slices as you do for the chicken or follow my Battered Onion ring recipe


4-10 Chicken bits, (any cut, wings, thighs drumsticks,etc)


350 ml Greek yoghurt.

350 ml Milk.

1 Tbsp Garlic powder.

1 Tbsp Onion salt.

1Tbsp Smoked Paprika.

Seasoned flour:

2 cups Flour.

1 Tbsp Garlic powder.

1 Tbsp Onion salt.

1Tbsp Smoked Paprika.

1 tsp Salt.

1 tsp Black Pepper.


5Tbsp Dark soy sauce.

1 clove Crushed Garlic.

1 Tbsp Honey.

1 Tbsp Sesame seeds.

1/4 tsp Cayene pepper (Optional)


Poor the Greek yoghurt in to a bowl and add the Milk, Paprika, Garlic powder and Onion salt  and mix well,. then add all the chicken parts and stir to ensure all chicken is coated, cover with clingfilm and put in the fridge for at least a couple of hours.

Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before you want to cook it.

Mix all the seasoned flour ingredients in a shallow bowl or on a tray.

lift each piece of chicken in turn from the marinade and dredge it through the flour.

once coated in flour dip it back into the marinade and then coat in flour again and place on a wire rack to rest while you do the rest of the chicken bits.

Now heat up a deep fat fryer to 150º  and fry the chicken in small batches so as not to cool the fat till its light and golden in color, (about 12-15 minutes) then remove to a wire rack to drain while you do the rest. (These can be left in a warm oven for up to 1/2 hour before moving on to the next stage)

Now turn the heat up on the fryer to 180º and refry the chicken till its a dark golden color, then remove to a wire rack to drain while you do the rest.

Mix the Dark soy sauce, Crushed Garlic and Honey in a small bowl and lightly paint the chicken bits  as soon as you can  and serve with a sprinkling of sesame seeds on top


Onion rings

Onion rings are incredibly easy to make, and people just love them. All you have to do is slice up an onion or 2, dunk them in a quick batter, and fry ’em up. You can serve them with your BBQ ribs on a summers evening. A big bowl of fresh battered onion rings will be an empty bowl before you know it.


4 Large onions,
1 cup plain flour
1 bottle lager
1 teaspoon salt

Freshly ground black pepper,


In a shallow mixing bowl, whisk the flour,  salt and pepper to combine. Whisk in just enough beer to make a smooth paste. Whisk in more beer until the batter is smooth and creamy, about the consistency of double cream.
Slice the onions in half and put cut side down on a chopping board, then slice the root off and bin it
Slice the rest of the onion into thick slices and separate the rings.

Pick up the individual onion rings with metal tongs and dip into the batter and then into a deep fat fryer.
