I have never made real fried chicken. I have a fear of frying in alot of oil. It's time for me to overcome it. I have a wok, I want to use that to fry in. What is your best recipe for a CRISPY, but MOIST fried chicken? Also, what oil? Method? THANKS!

Crunchy, you can do about the same in the oven or on the grill if the oil frying creeps you out. Putting the oil into the eggwash you use to make the batter adhere helps a lot, as does doing these steps some hours in advance and repeating them, while chilling the chicken in the fridge...admittedly, I'm not that big on "juicy" but if you brined it for a few hours, it would come out juicy as you could ask for, and you would still be avoiding the fryer method, if that's a problem for you.

That sounds like a good option too, thanks!

Seasoned flour coats chicken thighs and drumsticks for frying. The golden brown chicken is quick and easy to make, and it's very budget-friendly.

This is pretty much how I make fried chicken. That is the one thing I do use Crisco to prepare.

A heritage recipe, both simple and reliable: chicken in a batter of salt, pepper, flour and paprika, quickly fried in hot vegetable oil.

You don't need a lot of oil to fry it. Maybe a good inch in your skillet. Keeping the oil hot prevents the chicken from absorbing too much oil.

DON'T DO IT!! You'll get addicted and it's not something you should do on a regular basis! Go for the oven-fried recipe, bake on a rack so the heat gets to all sides and maybe that'll satisfy your crunchy craving, Crunchy. I hope so!

Dredged with seasoned flour, chicken pieces are dipped in beaten egg then tossed again in the flour to ensure a deliciously crispy, juicy fried chicken.

Try this recipe, it is great. I ALWAYS fry my chicken like this- dip in flour, then egg mixture, then flour again. Make sure your oil is hot enough before putting chicken in. I also taste my flower mixture before I start putting chicken in it to make sure there is enough seasoning. I make really good fried chicken this way !!
