OXO Shake & Flavour - Southern Fried Chicken & Garlic and Herb Wedges!

This post is part of a BritMums project with OXO Shake & Flavour. Shake & Flavour seasoning granules can be sprinkled into food during cooking or before serving. Find out more about the Shake & Flavour varieties.

We were sent some of the new fabulous OXO Shake & Flavour to try and 'shake up' our family meals!  

Inside the kit were:

7 flavour varients, an OXO recipe card box, Vintage style OXO bunting, recipe cards and 2 glass jars with straws! 

The kids jumped at the chance of Garlic and Herb wedges so we worked our meal around those with Southern fried chicken burgers too!  This way we got to try out 2 of the new flavours together. 

First of all, cut red skinned potatoes into wedges and sprinkle with semolina and the garlic and herb Shake & Flavour. 

 Pour a little oil into a roasting tin and bake the wedges for around 20/25 minutes on 180o.

Cut 3 chicken breasts in half (there are 6 of us - obviously if your family is smaller you wont need as many!) and wrap in cling film.  Take your frustrations out on the chicken by clobbering it until its thinner (this will help it cook quicker and make it more tender too)

Dip in egg wash and then into the Southern Fried Chicken crumbs.  Shallow fry for around 4 minutes on either side then transfer to an oven tray.  Place in the bottom of the oven with the fries until baked through.

Dish up and enjoy! 

(oops - remember to take pictures before you tuck into dinner and the plates are empty...the fact ALL the plates were empty speaks volumes in this house!!)

I cant believe how flavourful these little tubs are and we cant wait to try out the rest ..... im thinking Chinese style belly pork for tea tomorrow!!
