  • Make sure the flour goes into all the nooks and crannies of the raw chicken, including beneath any hanging skin, for the crispiest results.
  • Instead of a metal pan, use a baking or casserole dish if you don’t have one. The major objective is to confine the butter and chicken fluids. Make sure the glass or ceramic dish is oven-safe before using it.
  • Salted butter is more likely to burn when heated at a high temperature.
  • To make sure the chicken is fully cooked, use a food thermometer to check the interior temperature. The USDA states that 165 F is the minimum safe temperature for chicken.
  • Although they will cook more quickly, boneless chicken breasts will work in this recipe. After 12 to 15 minutes, check the internal temperature and continue cooking if necessary. To make sure the chicken is moist, some chefs like to soak the breasts in buttermilk overnight in the refrigerator.

Recipe Variations

  • For added taste and texture, stir in a couple tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese to the flour mixture.
  • The seasoned flour should have around 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne, onion powder, or garlic powder.
  • Try flavoring it with Cajun seasoning or an adobo spice blend.
  • The flour can be given a unique twist by including curry powder.
  • For really crispy chicken, Panko breadcrumbs can be used in place of the flour.

The fact that you prepared the chicken yourself is the nicest part about eating it. You didn’t stop at the neighborhood drive-through or spend $20 at a hip chicken spot. No, my friend; you are the one who cooked this delectable meal!

Essential Tips for Crispy, Juicy Fried Chicken

The coating and frying that make this dish from humble beginnings so beloved can sometimes make it scary to amateur cooks.

This recipe and technique are the result of all the tiny tricks I’ve picked up over the previous ten years, including suggestions from Alton Brown (in real life, no less) and the editors of Kitchn.

The cooking task of frying chicken is unquestionably one for the weekend because it takes a few hours to complete. But once you master the process, you can cook multiple batches at once for family outings or simply to have cold leftovers on hand to enjoy whenever the mood strikes. Here are the six most important things you should be aware of before frying this juicy, crispy chicken at home.

Post Image

1. Buy chicken pieces.

Everybody wants a drumstick, let’s face it. Purchase the portions you choose instead than arguing over the two you’ll receive from purchasing a whole chicken and cutting it down. Due to the extended cooking time required for the breasts, I personally omit them and instead choose for a 50/50 mix of drumsticks and thighs.

2. Dry brine the chicken for juiciness.

Salt the chicken by dry brining it first. The chicken can be coated and fried at room temperature or after just 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Since the chicken comes into close touch with the salt during this salting process, it is essential for moist, flavourful chicken. In addition to flavoring it, this aids in making it more delicate.

3. Make a strong spice mixture.

The Chicago Tribune apparently revealed the public in 2016 the identity of KFC’s top-secret spice blend. KFC employs a variety of different spices in their food. The seasoning combination you’ll find below reflects a softer touch because I tried the recipe as described and found it to be very salty and robust.

While the chicken is being salted, combine the seasoning blend, then sprinkle half of it over the chicken and the other half in the flour coating. Do not be alarmed by the quantity of spices used here; keep in mind that the fat from frying will mellow some of the spice flavor and that some spices will be left behind in the coating process.

4. Use egg whites, alcohol, and cornstarch for a crispy coating.

I picked up the egg white ingredient from my go-to tempura recipe. Although I usually use vodka, Alton Brown taught me to add bourbon to my buttermilk and egg combo. And I learned how to put cornstarch in my flour for frying from my friend Erika Council, a recipe developer and authority in Southern cuisine.

These components, which on the surface seem unrelated, combine to produce a super-crispy coating on the chicken that has all the flakes, ripples, and crannies that we love in fried chicken. What each one does in the batter is listed below.

  • Egg white adds structure in the form of protein. It also helps the flour coating stick to the chicken like culinary glue. Use whole eggs and you’ll have a softer crust because of the yolks’ fat content.
  • Alcohol evaporates quickly in the frying oil. This sets the coating and creates flaky layers. You often see this ingredient used in pie crust recipes too.
  • Cornstarch in the flour makes the crust crispier. Cornstarch weakens the all-purpose flour’s protein just enough to make the coating tender.

5. Fry in a Dutch oven.

The cast iron skillet is a symbol of Southern fried meals, but cooking in one causes a mess and can catch fire if you’re not careful.

Instead, fry your food in a Dutch oven. The heft of the pan helps control the temperature of the oil when chicken pieces are added and removed, and the high sides minimize spatter.

6. Use two thermometers!

Use a probe thermometer to check the internal temperature of the chicken and a deep-fry or candy thermometer for the oil. As the chicken pieces are put to the saucepan, you’ll notice that the temperature of the oil begins to drop. As you fry, you’ll need to adjust the heat to keep an eye on the temperature.

Your chicken will be perfectly cooked and juicy thanks to the probe thermometer. The golden-brown spice mixture will start to brown before the chicken is fully cooked, so you can’t only rely on that to know when the chicken is done.

For the most accurate reading, make sure the thermometer is not contacting bone when taking the chicken’s temperature. The chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165°F in the thickest portion of each piece.

How to Fry Chicken in a Dutch Oven (It’s Safer and Less Messy!)

I understand that frying at home can be frightening. Hot oil poses a number of risks, including the possibility of overflow due to displacement, splattering, and the subsequent dilemma of what to do with the wasted oil. The mess comes next, am I right? Let’s now address each of those issues directly.

Prevent overflow by using the Dutch oven.

Don’t try to fry in a shallow pan, which can overflow easily. Instead, fry in your Dutch oven.

Set up a proper fry station.

Your Dutch oven should be in the middle of your fry station, half-filled with oil (keep the oil bottle! ), and equipped with a deep-fry thermometer.

Your pan of prepared and ready-to-fry chicken should be on one side, and a cooling rack set up on a baking sheet should be on the opposite side for draining and cooling the fried chicken. For resting greasy tongs or other frying equipment on while frying, you might also need a plate, a small baking sheet, or a sheet of foil.

Minimize splattering with the right tools.

The high edges of the Dutch oven will lessen the quantity of oil that splatters out of the pan, but using long tongs to lower your chicken into the hot oil can help lessen splashing. In order for the excess oil to leak back into the Dutch oven and not all over your cooktop, hold the cooked chicken over the hot oil for 10 to 15 seconds before using another set of tongs to remove it from the pan.

Don’t even mess with the hot oil post-frying.

The ability to cover the oil with the pot’s lid and allow it to cool on the back of the stove after you’ve finished eating your chicken is another advantage of using a Dutch oven for frying. Usually, I wait until the following day to even deal with the fried oil. To shift the oil and clean the pot the next day, set a phone reminder.

What to Do with Used Fry Oil

When your frying oil has reached room temperature, place the empty bottle in your sink, connect a funnel, and then put a small strainer inside the funnel. You can also use a large, clean glass jar. Back into the bottle after passing the oil through the strainer.

After straining, the oil can be stored for a subsequent use at room temperature or in the refrigerator. As an alternative, you can either seal the bottle and dispose of it as a whole or locate a recycling facility in your area that accepts cooking oil.

How to Cool and Serve Fried Chicken

Transfer the cooked fried chicken to a cooling rack placed over a baking sheet coated with paper towels. Although placing the chicken directly on paper towels (or brown paper) may help remove some excess fat, it can also lead to a steamy area where the crust that took so much effort to make will get soggy.

Before serving, let the chicken cool for at least 10 minutes. The crust will be properly set and the chicken will have completed all of its carryover cooking. Any leftover chicken is best kept in the refrigerator in an airtight container lined with paper towels after completely cooling. For late-night munching, the paper towel absorbs condensation and keeps the chicken crisp.

Health Benefits Of Flour

Have you ever heard of health benefits of flour? In this article, we will discuss some of the current findings on the topic “health benefits of flour”, and how they might affect your body. Did you know that right after rice, flour is the next most produced cereal food in the world? It is a staple food in many countries around the globe. This is amazing! But did you also know that there are health benefits of flour? That’s right — this humble ingredient can be used to help beautify, strengthen and nourish our body in various ways.

1. Controls obesity

Wheat has been shown to aid in weight loss, but women gain substantially more from it than do males. As a result, routinely ingesting whole wheat products can significantly help those who are obese and result in noticeable weight loss.

  1. Promotes gut health

Dietary fiber and bran are abundant in wheat flour.

According to studies, wheat bran contains substances that function as prebiotics and feed some of the good bacteria in your stomach. By avoiding constipation, eating wheat flour may help improve digestive health.

3. Avoids colon cancer.

One of the most prevalent malignancies that affects the digestive tract is colon cancer. According to scientific research, eating whole grains like wheat flour may help prevent colon cancer. Consuming foods high in fiber, such wheat flour, can greatly lower the chance of developing colon cancer.

  1. Boosts the body’s metabolism

A variety of metabolic problems can arise when your body’s metabolism isn’t functioning properly. Additionally, two of the most common conditions are high blood pressure and low HDL cholesterol. These factors may put patients at risk for cardiovascular disease.

This is why the majority of medical professionals suggest consuming whole wheat grains. Your whole digestion will improve thanks to wheat, which will improve your metabolism.

  1. Protects against type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a life-threatening condition that can be controlled by paying closer attention to one’s diet, despite being a chronic disorder. One of the many nutrients found in wheat is magnesium.

Approximately 300 enzymes that affect how the body utilizes insulin and excretes glucose depend on this mineral as a cofactor. Therefore, consuming whole wheat regularly helps to regulate blood sugar. Diabetes sufferers can successfully manage their blood sugar levels by simply switching out their normal intake of rice for wheat. Wheat flour has a glycemic index of 54, which is excellent for folks who want to limit their sugar intake.

  1. Reduces persistent inflammation

Any inflammation that persists for longer than a few months is referred to as chronic inflammation. It can be brought on by a number of things, such as an immune system imbalance or a response to harmful stimuli. Even though it might not seem like a big deal, if left untreated, it can cause various cancers and even rheumatoid arthritis.

Fortunately, wheat flour can assist with a disease called chronic inflammation. Wheat also contains betaine, a substance that helps treat a variety of illnesses, including heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, type 2 diabetes, and cognitive decline.

  1. Helps avoid gallstones

Wheat is another food that you can take to avoid gallstone issues. Bile acids are secreted in excess, which leads to the formation of gallstones. Because wheat contains insoluble fiber, digestion is easier and releases less bile acid, reducing the risk of gallstones.

To sum up

One of the gifts from nature to man is wheat. These advantages of wheat flour for health prove to that. However, you would be wise to speak with your doctor if you were unsure about your feelings around consuming wheat flour.
