Recipe for a Crispy Fried Chicken

Crispy Fried Chicken

from

FCSF Globe fans

 

Recipe includes:-

 

1 kg chicken (about 2 lbs), cut into 8 portions if purchased whole

1 Cup flour
1/2 Cup instant mashed potato powder
1 Tbs salt (table salt)
1 Tbs mixed dried herbs
½ Tsp ground black pepper
¼ Tsp cayenne pepper
½ Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs onion powder
2 Eggs
¼ Cup water
and
Canola oil for frying
Take note:
Another component in getting a good crisp is in the oil. New oil won’t fry as well, and neither will old oil. Adding a little bit of oil previously used to fry into a batch of new oil will help you get good penetration. You can then save the oil for future use, but after multiple fries, you might notice some foam along the top, or that you cannot get it to the right temperature without significant smoking. If that is the case, it’s time to replace it. But remember to keep a spoonful to add to the next oil batch!  – SF Globe fans.
