Another weekend to explore my love for food, and my culinary skills. Although, this is not just another weekend, but the last weekend of 2011. So I decided to welcome the year 2012 with a special dish.
So here we go.

- In a bowl, mix cornflour with salt and half of the Italian spices.
- Heat butter and 1 tbsp oil in a pan.
- Mix the marinaded chicken thoroughly with the cornflour mixture.
- Fry the chicken on medium to high heat for about 5-7 minutes.
