Before I entered the world of cooking I always wondered how people at KFC made such crunchy & crispy yet tender Zinger burger. This delicious burger always caught my eye. So one fine evening, I thought of giving it a try. It turned out soo great and yummy that i could not stop licking my fingers..... it was actually "finger lickin' good".

Repeat this again. That is, coat it again with flour mixture, egg mixture and finally cornflakes. This results in double coating. Althu bit messy.. but don't worry as the results will be super perfect.

Next heat oil for deep frying, and once the oil is hot, set the heat to medium flame, and put the slices in oil. Wait until each side is golden and crisp and the chicken is properly cooked. One side will take about 3 minutes.

    1. my dear u can use breadcrumbs, if u don't like cornflakes, but the result won't be that crunchy and crispy, as the original Zinger. O yes u can use crushed potato chips which the kids mostly love to eat, but accordingly adjust spices in flour :)

    1. Thanks dear, before freezing it marinate it overnight in refrigerator. Then u can freeze. But coating with flour, egg & cornflakes works best at the spot when u have to fry!
