  1. Cut your fresh fillet of cod or free-range chicken breast to the desired size.

  3. Meanwhile, heat a deep fat fryer to 180°C.
  4. Coat the cod/chicken in flour, dip into the beaten egg and finally coat in breadcrumbs. Repeat with all pieces of cod/chicken.
  5. Pop the bread-crumbed cod/chicken into the fryer for about 3–5 minutes, until cooked through and golden brown. Transfer the fried fish or chicken to a bowl lined with kitchen paper to drain off any excess oil.
