  1. I do a similar thing with chicken. Sometimes I will even make oat coatings for that nice oaty taste.
    I make it in to little strips, larger strips, sausages and burgers. It's so easy to do and takes like 30 minutes total on a lazy day.
    I add all kinds of spices in with the mixes, like turmeric, chinese five spice, chilli, cayenne, garlic, onion and so on. I've made mixes for various cuts through experimentation. I try to always keep it to equal amounts of spices, or at most double/half a teaspoon. Anything more is more complicated than I care to think about lol
    I prefer adding them here rather than on the chicken. I prefer the taste that way. I will also sometimes cook the chicken lightly before coating it. Maybe add a little light char and use some smokey spices. Loads of ways to do it.

    I was going to make some today, but I was feeling extra lazy today. I just cooked it in oven instead with some smoked paprika fries and lightly fried veg. It was chicken wings and thighs, more awkward to prepare. Plus, both my hands are sore today, one because I hit it off a wall, the other because I cut it doing something dumb with scissors. Oh god help
    The things I do for my nieces crafting kit.
