KFC, fried chicken, recipe
1. Take a cup, and mix all the spices and flour into it.
2. Then take a second cup, and mix the low-fat cream and the egg into it. For 20 to 30 minutes, soak your chicken pieces in the egg and cream mixture (at room temperature).
3. Remove the chicken from the cream, and let the extra cream drip off. Then dip the chicken into the flour and spice mixture, covering the pieces. Give them a shake. Then put the chicken on a rack, leaving them for about 20 minutes.
4. Using a pot with thick and high sides, or a Dutch oven, pour in 7-8 cm of oil and put on a medium-high heat of 347°
F. Using a thermometer, keep a close eye on the temperature. When you hit 347°F, turn the heat onto medium. Now fry the chicken pieces for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn them over only once. 
5. Cover a plate with kitchen paper, and lay the cooked chicken onto it.
