Fried Chicken

I think everybody loves fried chicken (that's my opinion). I belong to a big family and fried
 chicken is one of the favorites, buying it from KFC, McDonalds or Jollibee, will be too expensive if we will order 50 pieces for  family gatherings. The cheapest way is to buy chicken meat and cook it.  Here is my family's traditional way of cooking it. 

1 kilo chicken
1 lemon or 5 calamansi
2 tablespoons Nestle Cream
1 egg ( beaten)
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
salt and pepper to taste

1. Mix the chicken,  lemon, salt and pepper. Marinate for 15 minutes.
2. Put the all purpose cream, mix well
3. Add the beaten egg, mix well
4. Roll over the breading.
5. Deep fry it until golden brown.
6. Serve it hot.
For Breading:
Mix the flour and cornstarch.
