Help Muted Spices After Cooking

Hi I marinate chicken overnight in spices (cayenne and curry powder) and then pan fry it. After it's cooked I really enjoy the chicken, but I can barely taste the spices. I don't want to create a sauce since I want a crunching coating. Has anyone solved this issue?

  1. Add more spice right before frying. Are you using flour to coat the chicken, or just putting the chicken in the pan, as-is?

      Thanks for the reply. I do coat the chicken before pan frying and have used flour or other things and have added more spices, but they tend to get lost in the flour.

      I need a way to maximize the spices when cooking. I believe cooking kills the spices. However, I don't want to use the spices after cooking.

        put the spices directly onto the chicken before flouring.
