“This is just how KFC serves them in Australia. Very yummy and my personal favourite item served at KFC. It took me a little while to work out how to do it properly but, now it is worth it and I thought I would share it with all of you.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim any excess skin or fat from the chicken breasts.
  2. Slice the chicken breasts into nice size strips (approximately 1/2 inch x 3-4 inches).
  3. Combine the water, salt and MSG for the marinade in a large bowl and place chicken in to set for 20 minutes.
  4. Turn the strips once while they are marinating.
  5. Combine the beaten egg and milk and a bit of pepper in a medium size bowl.
  6. In a small plastic bag combine the remaining ingredients (flour, salt, pepper, paprika, Mexican chille and MSG) and shake.
  7. At this time you can start to preheat the oil in a deep-fryer to 220 deg.
  8. When the chicken has been marinating for 20 minutes, transfer each piece to paper towels so that excess liquid can drain off.
  9. Using about ten strips at once, place the chicken in the bag with the flouer and shake the bag until the strips of chicken are coated.
  10. Place them on a plate.
  11. Once they have been coated with the flour mixture dip them in the egg and milk mixture individualy and them back into the bag for another shake.
  12. Be sure to try and get as much coating on each strip.
  13. If you wish you can coat them again if you want a thicker coating.
  14. Drop the strips, 5-6 at a time into the hot oil.
  15. They should only take a couple of minutes depending on how you like your chicken.
  16. Be sure to stir when frying so the strips don't stick together.
  17. Remove the chicken from the oil and allow them to drain on paper towels for a couple of minutes.
  18. Heat the tortilla bread in a frying pan on each side until it is nice and warm but not crispy, then remove from the pan.
  19. Place about 3-4 (depending on size) krispy strips on the tortilla bread.
  20. Then add the tomato and mayonnaise.
  21. Put plenty of pepper and salt on the mayonnaise.
  22. Then add the lettuce.
  23. Roll up and serve.
