Chicken or Chippy Salt

Makes 120g Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 5 hours   Rated:

My kids love the bought stuff, even today as grown ups. We cannot apparently have fish and chips without it! In copious it was about time I finally got my saltiness sorted and make my own version. If you have a dehydrator by all means use that instead of an oven. It may take longer however.

This is definitely delicious and totally legit tasting on all things that you would expect...try it on some or all of any of the below listed recipes...very umami!

Corn Chips

Fish Fingers

Spicy Fish Tacos

Oven Fries and Lime Aioli. Fast (Fake Away) Food At Home!

Not Fried Chicken

Air Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Air Fryer Chips

Eleven Herbs and Spices Fried Chicken

Buttermilk Chicken Burgers
