He recently shared his method for making perfectly crisp fried chicken. All the ingredients you’ll need for this tasty dish are listed below.
2 lbs. chicken. If purchased whole, cut into 8 portions.
1 c flour
1/2 c instant mashed potato flakes
1 tbs. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
½ tbs. garlic powder
1 tbs. onion powder
2 whole eggs
¼ c water
Canola oil to be used for frying.
The secret to getting deliciously crispy chicken is in the oil. You can actually use a small amount of oil used to fry a previous batch of chicken. Go ahead and save the oil for future use.
Keep in mind that after multiple fries foam may begin to appear on the top and you may not be able to get the oil to the correct temperature without lots of smoking. This means it’s time to replace the oil. Just keep a spoonful to add to your next batch.
