  2. Combine all batter ingredients and mix until it’s even in consistency, it should be thick but still runny. Add more milk if needed.
  3. Place corn chips in a food processor, roughly grind for a few seconds do not pulverize it, texture should resemble bigger breadcrumbs. Mix in the breadcrumbs and place it in a plate.
  4. Dip chicken in the batter then roll it in the coating. Place in a flat container, do not stack together then place in the freezer for an hour.
  5. Prepare a deep fryer when oil hits 180C add the coated chicken and deep fry for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown and cooked inside.
