1. Cut the chicken fillets into strips and make 2 slits across the top of the drumsticks. In a medium bowl whisk together the egg with a dash of milk. 2. In a separate large bowl add together the flour spices, herbs and sesame seeds. 3. Mix until well combined. 4. Line a tray with baking paper or cling wrap.5.Rinse the chicken and pat dry with roller towel, season with salt and pepper and dust with the cornflour. 6. Dip the chicken in the beaten egg and then in the flour mixture and transfer to the lined tray. 7. Once all the chicken is evenly coated, transfer to the tray.

INFO & TIPS
NB: To maximize crispness, do not overcrowd the basket, rather fry in 2 batches but leave enough space in between the chicken to crisp to perfection.
