Wiltshire Chilli Farm: Naga Fried Chicken Recipe

In collaboration with Wiltshire Chilli Farm

Naga Fried Chicken

I like a bit of spice in my life, more specifically in the form of chillies. Growing up in a Caribbean household spice was a staple and over the years I’ve built up quite a tolerance and can take pretty hot chillies now. For me though, it’s not all about the heat, but also the flavour. I’ve been working with Wiltshire Chilli Farm who are one of the largest producers of chillies in the UK and who also believe in flavour over heat. They have a range of award-winning homemade sauces, preserves, salts and pepper grinders with heat levels ranging from mild to tongue numbing, sweat-inducing pain – something for all. What started out as a hobby for owner, Jamie Sythes, back in 2010 has now turned into a global brand with outlets in the USA and Australia.

Recipe in Process

I’ve been creating recipes using their products for their newly launched website. Of course, all of their sauces are versatile and can be used stand alone, which I do on a near daily basis with no signs of tiring nearly five months in. One of my current favourites (it changes) is the Naga Chilli Sauce. I used this along with Naga Chilli Salt to create Naga Fried Chicken – it’s a hot, sticky mess and finger licking good. You so need to try it!
