Kay's House of Treats: Hot & Spicy Zinger-Like Chicken

Hot & Spicy Zinger-Like Chicken

My cousin had been staying at my place for a few days, and she was having these random cravings for something different; something fried and definitely not Desi so I decided to make this fried chicken which I had bookmarked for a while but hadn't gotten a chance to make yet. I served it with fries and garlic mayo sauce and with garlic sesame noodles. I know the garlic sesame noodles sound a bit of a strange combination with the fried chicken but that is what the siblings wanted and so that is what I made. 

It's supposed to be a Zinger type chicken, and while it didn't turn out exactly the same, probably because I didn't use chicken with skin, but it was still so good. The chicken was moist and delicious; the batter on the outside was crispy and because it was seasoned as well, it had so much flavor. The garlic mayo sauce on the side provided a great tangy dipping sauce the fried chicken.
