2 cups Lancewood double cream plain yoghurt

¼ cup Sriracha sauce (or your favourite chilli sauce)

1 Tbs smoked paprika

2 Tbs garlic powder

8 chicken drumsticks


3 cups cake flour

2 Tbs dried oregano

1 tsp cayenne pepper

In a bowl, mix together the yoghurt, Sriracha sauce, smoked paprika and garlic powder. Add the chicken and toss well to coat – leave to marinade for at least two hours or preferably overnight.

Mix together flour, oregano, cayenne, paprika and salt and pepper.

Take 4 Tbs of the yoghurt marinade and stir into the flour mixture to form large crumb flakes.

Dip each chicken piece into the crumbs to coat well then place the chicken onto a tray and into the fridge for 30 minutes.
