Pika Chakula Fried Chicken with Coleslaw

Nuvita Biscuits

Next time you’re craving takeaway chicken, look no further than your own kitchen.


  • 600ml buttermilk
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) mayonnaise
  • 1 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 2 cups (160g) finely shredded green cabbage
  • 1 cup (80g) finely shredded red cabbage
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups (300g) plain flour, seasoned
  • Sunflower oil, to deep-fry


Combine the buttermilk, mustard, paprika, garlic and 1 teaspoon each sea salt and pepper. Add chicken and turn to coat in the buttermilk mixture. Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

To make coleslaw, whisk mayonnaise, vinegar and 2 tbs warm water in a bowl until combined. Season, then toss with the cabbage, carrot and spring onion. Chill. Place flour on a plate. Remove chicken from the buttermilk mixture, shaking off excess. Roll in flour, then shake off excess.

Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large pan to 190°C (a cube of bread should turn golden in 30 seconds). In 2 batches, fry chicken for 4-5 minutes, turning with tongs to ensure even cooking, until crisp and golden.

Place on a tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes until cooked through. Sprinkle chicken with salt and serve with coleslaw.
