The chicken breast

Start by cutting the chicken breast in the length by half. The pictures should give you an idea how to cut it. After this, sprinkle salt, pepper and seasoning of your choice to taste. Marinate both sides and when this is done, let the chicken breast absorb it. We will continue with the next steps.

Batter to make crispy chicken

Prepare 2 bowls: 1 will have egg mixed with 1/4 cup of water. The other bowl is for the flour mixture with corn flour, salt, pepper and seasoning. Stir the mixture by hand for a minute.

Add the chicken to the mix and massage the flour in softly. Turn the chicken and gently squeeze it as the flour sets in. After doing this more than several times, add the chicken covered in the dry batter, with the egg and water. Make sure it all gets covered.

We are going to repeat this process again: add the chicken again in the dry batter. Massage it gently again while turning it in the flour. Rinse and repeat one more time by adding the chicken in the egg with water mix and back in the batter.

Your chicken should now look similar like this:

Pre-heat the oil and fry the chicken on medium fire. Fry both sides equally by turning it every other minute until it’s golden brown. Take it out and let the oil drip

You now have a beautiful crispy chicken. Let’s work on the salad topping next.

Crispy Chicken Salad

For the next step I will be using a grater. It’s optional to have this, it just makes it easier when cutting. Cut the corn, cucumber, jicama, pineapple and carrot. Make sure that they’re tiny thin slices. This makes the eating just easier.

Now that everything is prepared it’s time to present it nicely on a plate. I start with the chicken and place the lettuce on top of it. After this I will add each of the ingredients on top of the lettuce.

To finish this salad up I use mayonaise. You can also use some other sauce that goes great for salad (like the thousand island saus/dressing). The end result looks tasty and delicious! Now dig and enjoy this simple salad meal
