I've never made fried chicken before, and this was just what I was looking for! I always marinate poultry in a salt water solution before I make it (big difference, much more juicy), so I knew Doreen knew what she was talking about. Thank you for such a nice recipe!
Tried this recipe to see if I would like it better than mine. This is not a bad recipe I just will be sticking to mine in the future.
I tried it today. It was so good. Instead of dipping the chicken to the flour for the first time, I shook it in a brown bag. For a kick, I added some creole seasoning and chili powder to the flour mixture. Since I don't have a deep fryer or meat thermometer, I cooked the chicken in medium heat for the first two minutes and low heat for the rest. The salt water marination and msg really did the trick! kudos.
This was great! I tried it last night and this is a keeper. Crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. I did omit MSG and added more seasoning. Thanks for posting!
The marinade really made a difference-the chicken was extra tender. Actually the whole cooking method was great. The only addition I made was to the spices; I increased the pepper and added 1 teas. each of paprika, garlic powder, dry mustard and poultry seasoning. No matter how you like your chicken seasoned and breaded, the marinade will make a difference. Yum!
I really liked this recipe. I find leaving the chicken to brine overnight in the fridge works better than just 20 minutes, but 20 minutes will do if you're short on time. I added a few more spices to the mix as other reviewers did. Also omitted the msg. Beautiful! Will mnake this again.
Very good, I did add a lot more seasonings to my flour. I always drain fried food on a rack because the bottom can get soggy if drained on a paper towel.
My family loved the chicken. I had to adjust the times for some of it,But it was a hit. Thank you.
