Easy Fried Chicken and Avocado Dip

I used to prepare this very simple fried chicken for my kid as finger food without the addition of lemon juice... Very easy n simple to prepare and used to prepare this only for him as we have other  chicken curries n briyani to eat... My husband always complains that I prepare very little of these fried ones... So bought some chicken breasts few days back n prepared this fried chicken n Avocado dip for him as a surprise treat for his dinner..... We have lovely memories with the Avocado fruit too.... Avocado's reminds us of our trip to Kurumba Resort.... Tasted this for the first time there as creamy soup... since then we guys had fallen in love with this flavourful fruit...  My hubby is not a great risk taker in tasting foods.. so when I do some innovation in recipes...its like writing an exam for me :) (chemistry paper was equally difficult for me!!!!) and his reactions are like exam results...sometimes I do get distinction... sometimes I pass and sometimes arrears
 ( have to try that till I get pass mark ;) ) he he.... But his words, appreciation and support means a lot to me...He is so supportive and helps me alot in blogging....

And coming back to my recipe....Served this for our dinner and enjoyed alot... The best compliment is he loved the Avocado dip sooo much that he ended up used this as spread over crispy ghee dosas :)
