  3. On a large plate add flour to cover and a little garlic (optional) and mix.
  4. Next to this put your egg mixture.
  5. Then put a deep dish filled with the breadcrumbs.
  6. Fill a deep frying pan with oil to 1 inch deep and heat slowly.
  7. Coat each piece of chicken in the flour.
  8. Then dip into the egg and coat both sides.
  9. Then dip into the breadcrumbs and coat both sides making sure the breadcrumbs are pressed down firmly.
  10. Then check the oil and put a few pieces in to fry slowly turning to each side at least twice.
  11. When cooked lift each piece off and allow the excess oil to drip off, place in a dish lined with kitchen roll and squeeze fresh lemon liberally over each piece of chicken
  12. The whole trick of this is to cook the chicken slowly and not have the oil too hot.
