    The standard breading procedure is flour, egg wash (egg + a little water whisked up), and then bread crumbs. If you aren't allergic to wheat, the BEST bread crumbs on the planet are panko, which are Japanese bread crumbs. This is what all fancy restaurants use.

    Feel free to add dried herbs, salt, and pepper to the flour mixture.

    I'm allergic to wheat so what I do is tapioca/rice flour, egg wash, and crushed Rice Chex Mix. It actually tastes really good.

    The best way to do fried chicken is to cut large cubes of chicken breasts, doing one of the 2 above methods, and setting those on paper towels. This is called popcorn chicken. Then in a metal bowel on low heat heat up some Sriracha hot sauce with salt and pepper, and slowly whisk in whole butter to your desired consistency and you then have buffalo wing sauce. Toss your popcorn chicken in this bowel and you'll then have buffalo poppers, an extremely delicious snack. You can also make regular buffalo wings with the method, but just don't bread the wings, fry them as-is until they are crispy, and toss them in the Sriracha buffalo wing sauce.

    When doing fried chicken, I believe peanut oil is best. It cooks hot without burning, and has a great flavor with fried chicken. If you cook the fried chicken too hot the exterior will get crispy, but the interior will be raw. If you cook it too low the exterior will be soggy and the interior overcooked. So this takes some skill, and don't be afraid to finish things off in the oven, though if you are finishing things in the oven, it might mean you're cooking thing too hot. I cook my fried chicken in my wok. A wok is probably the best thing to fry chicken in next to an actual fryer in my opinion. Some people will say a cast iron skillet, but I disagree for many reason I don't want to get into, though the main one is the fact that you have to use up a LOT more oil when using a cast iron skillet in comparison to a wok. I fry in my cast iron skillet only when I'm doing potato tacos, which I prob could explain if you guys wanna know how.

    We no longer fry chicken since we have discovered this recipe. You use French's fried onions (crushed into finer pieces) instead of traditional breading. Then you bake instead of deep fry. It is delicious. The chicken is incredibly moist, I think it's from the oils in the onion stuff. Tastes similar to fried chicken, but better. And it's a LOT less messy. We serve it up with fresh romaine and Caeser dressing.

    I don't know but I'd be willing to bet those packaged fried onions are loaded with MSG at the least and likely several other things I have no interest in consuming.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious, I just tried it. Thanks for posting it, instant favorite!

    Also, I didn't see any ingrediants in french's onions that could be msg. All basic stuff. If it does have msg, I'll know because I get a screaming headache from it.

    I love fried chicken, it's one of my favorite foods that I will consume regardless of how good or bad it is for me. Shami, that recipe you posed above sounds amazing, I must try it!

    it's not deep fat frying - but - first i cook some bacon to get some grease + i like bacon.

    then i saute the chicken quarters or thighs.

    for salt i use the packets i mooched from McDonald's.


    my new year's resolution every year - to not burn my food.

    yesterday i burned some onions. they were on sale & i figure they're nutritious.


    i imagine a job at KFC would be educational. for that kind of frying i guess half the secret is the batter, the other half is temperature & cooking time.
