MEAL MAKEOVER 'FRIED' CHICKEN

THE ORIGINAL VERSION

Chicken pieces are marinated in buttermilk, coated in spiced flour, dipped in beaten egg, then given a second coating of flour. They’re then deep-fried to get that crispy coating.

WHAT WE DID

We’ve coated the buttermilk-marinated chicken pieces in spiced breadcrumbs and then oven baked them to get the moreish crispy coated chicken taste – without any of the greasiness.

What Is Wi-FI 6E?

If you’re in the market for a new router or any device that uses Wi-Fi, you should first understand the new Wi-Fi 6E standard and what it means for the future of wireless networks at home and in offices around the US. The Wi-Fi Alliance, a group of Wi-Fi platform vendors that work with the FCC and electronics manufacturers to set standards for Wi-Fi technology, announced the Wi-Fi 6E designation in 2020 for any IEEE 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) products that support 6GHz wireless spectrum.
