Family-Favorite Fried Chicken
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 10 min./batch
Good base recipe for fried chicken. The chicken was moist and not dried out. As with another reviewer, I added salt and followed their advice in dredging in the flour first, then the egg, then the flour mixture again. By following that advice the flour adhered better to the chicken. I personally used boneless chicken thighs. I prepped the thighs by pounding them out with a meat hammer prior to dredging; by doing this I had to watch carefully because the chicken cooked faster. To avoid being bland I doubled all spices; however, did not double the flour. Overall, a good recipe.
Good flavor and easy
This chicken has a nice breading and fries up nicely. It does need a tad bit more salt for the flavors to really come through. Next time I make this I will add a bit more salt. I also dredged the chicken in flour before the whisked egg so that the egg and breading mixture would stick better.
This is not a good recipe if you like flavor. The coating is great, but the flavor profile is very bland....thumbs down
RecipeI does not use any marinade or injection. Very generic taste. Sans buttermilk, very generic recipe. But C for effort of simplicity. Works far better if you either marinate or inject chicken at least 12 hours before cutting up into sections. Also, fry chicken breasts at a slightly lower temperature ( about 10 degrees) for 7 minutes longer.
I have been looking for a good coating for chicken wings and this is it!! I deep fried them for about 9 minutes and they were perfect along with ranch dressing for dipping. I did substitute Panko for the bread crumbs, the wings were perfectly crisp! Can't wait to make the wings again and other chicken pieces.
Amazing! This is exactly how l have been making my fried chicken for over 25 years. People love it and ask me " What do you put in your chicken to make it taste so good?"
So good! A great variation to buttermilk fried chicken. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne to the dredge for a little kick.
I didn't know fried chicken could be so G...OOD!
