In a large bowl, mix Jollof Dry Spice mix, 1/2 tsp. each sea salt and black pepper, and canola oil. Add buttermilk and chicken breasts, turning to coat all over. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate overnight (or at least 1 hour) in refrigerator.

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, mix corn flour, 1/2 tsp. each sea salt and black pepper, and nutmeg. Dip each chicken strip into seasoned flour to coat evenly. Fry in batches of 4 or 5 until golden and crispy (about 4 minutes—any longer and they may dry out or burn). Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining chicken. Serve with Shito Mayo.


2 Tbsp. Jollof Dry Spice Mix

1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. buttermilk
