1 teaspoon baking powder

Grated Cheddar cheese

In a shallow bowl beat together 1 egg and 1 cup of milk. Combine all of the coating ingredients in another shallow bowl, pie plate, or shaker bag and mix well. Dip the chicken pieces into the egg mixture then into the coat and double dip. Deep fry in batches until chicken pieces are golden brown and fully cooked. Drain on paper towels.

For the gravy, in a sauce pan, melt butter, add the flour, stir with wire whisk. Brown the flour & butter until golden brown and slowly add the stock, a little at a time, stirring thoroughly after each addition, whisk until there are no lumps. Add the salt, pepper and Worcestershire to taste.

To assemble the Famous Bowls – Add a layer of mashed potato onto the bottom of a bowl. Top with corn, chicken pieces, gravy and cheese.

Serve as a side to your braai meat or as a main meal.
