I love chicken. I love using it in everything from my chicken curries to my chicken quesadillas. However, what’s the first recipe that comes to mind when you think of chicken? Yes, you got it! The classic fried chicken.
People often (wrongly) assume that frying chicken is too difficult to be done at home. They resort to going to places, such as KFC, to get their fix of fried chicken. Now don’t get me wrong I love my KFC chicken, but this fried chicken recipe is SO much better and it puts fast food to shame.
The thing about fried chicken is that it really is so simple, deceivingly simple in fact. It’s less about the recipe and more about the technique so let me give you some of my tips and tricks.
Before we get onto that though the quick thing about the ingredients is that you can season the flour however you like. I add spices, just because I love spicy food. However, you could omit the spices and add whatever combination of ingredients you like.
Now let’s talk about the main problem when it comes to frying chicken. The breading. Why does breading fall off the fried chicken? Well, there can be several reasons for that.
The most common reason is that your oil was too cold. It is important that you fry your chicken in hot oil otherwise as soon as you add the chicken the flour is just going to float off.
Another reason is that you’ve overcrowded the pan. A lot of people just want to fill the fryer up. However, it is important to avoid that. This recipe is extremely simple, so waiting a bit longer just so you can fry another batch to prevent overcrowding shouldn’t really be an issue. Trust me, it’s worth it.
Also, another thing, do not keep touching the chicken. Allow the chicken to cook undisturbed. Only flip it once during the whole process. If you keep touching it again and again this can cause you to pull of the breading.
