|200 g||(1 lb)||Chicken breast, skinless and boneless, per person|
|2 L||(8 cups)||Peanut or canola oil|
|250 ml||(1 cup)||Breadcrumbs|
|5 ml||(1 tsp)||Garlic powder|
|5 ml||(1 tsp)||Red chili pepper|
|5 ml||(1 tsp)||Dried basil|

4. Coat each piece of chicken with the eggs, then immediately roll it into the breadcrumb mixture.

6. Refrigerate until fondue time.
7. Ensure the fondue pot is positioned appropriately so that it will not need to be moved.
