Recipe by Brit Bird

I found this recipe a while ago in NOW magazine, it has a celeb chef section and apparently this is Jennifer Lopez's favourite recipe to make at home!!! This is actually a really great, easy recipe. I serve it with corn on the cob (with lots of butter), and mamas kitchen's kicked up baked sweet potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the chicken in a bowl and cover with evaporated milk, set aside.
  2. Mix the flour, cayenne pepper, paprika, cajun seasoning, parsley and lemon zest together and put into a large plastic bag.
  3. Shake off the excess milk from the chicken and add to the bag to coat in the seasoned flour. Chill until ready to fry.
  4. Combine all the ingredients for the coleslaw in a bowl and chill until ready to use.
  5. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes. Turn and continue frying until browned and cooked through. Drain each piece of the chicken on kitchen paper.
  6. Serve with coleslaw.
