1 (4 pound)
whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
1 (.7 ounce) package
dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
ground black pepper
oil for frying
Marinating in buttermilk for 24 hours is the tender, flavorable secret. I drained then shook a couple pieces at a time in 1 cup Bisquick, added 1/2 Tbsp Paprika, 2 t salt and 1/2 t pepper. Instead of frying, try oven at 425*. In 13x9 baking dish spray with PAM heavy, put chunks of unsalted butter and put empty dish into oven until melted. Remove and put in pieces, bake 25 min - turn and bake 25 min more. Delicious!
I had difficulty getting some ingredients here in UK especially dry Italian seasoning but made up something with a few herbs and spices.
I liked the result. Marinading in butter milk is a really good idea. (For UK readers, butter milk can be found at Tesco).
I cooked the chicken in an oven, 200C, since I don't use deep frying. I sprayed the dish with olive oil, put the chicken in then sprayed it as well.
Next time I'll adapt the coating by using bread crumbs and perhaps substitute the Italian seasoning with some lemon zest, or another strong flavoured fruit, some crushed bay leaves, and some basil, ground pepper, perhaps some lemon grass.
My wife suggests putting the chicken seasoning into the marinade instead of the salt.
Nice elend of flavors and can be prepared without too mych effort or time involved. A keeper!!
Anyone who would say that this recipe was like throwing money out the window needs to serve at a food kitchen for just one day. Absolutely nothing wrong with this recipe or the seasonings. My only problem was getting the chicken pieces to cook throughly. I did use dark meat, which takes longer anyway, but twenty minutes just didn't seem to do it even tho I used a candy thermometer. I had to place the meat in the oven for about fifteen minutes. Nontheless, it was tasty, crispy and enjoyed by my gang. Thanks Lora!
Sadly enough, I feel as though money was thrown out the window with this recipe. I have to say that I don't think anyone who has left a 4-5 star review, actually know what really great fried chicken is. I really hate to even give it one star. This was not "awesome"
The basic idea of this recipe is good, but it really needs more spice. I found it to be rather bland. Adding more spices really gave it more flavor. Using the buttermilk was a great idea because it really helped the flour mixture to stay on the chicken.
My family and I loved this recipe. This was the very first time I made fried chicken. It came out delicious!! I recommend this recipe to everyone!
I tried this recipe for dinner, and it was a huge it. This recipe is a keeper!
