Posted on 07/30/2005 4:08:04 PM PDT by Randy Larsen
Looking for good fried chicken recipes.
Paging our uber chef.
copycat recipes on the net??? KFC and Popeyes recipes are on there.
I hope you get some responses. I don't have a consistent recipe I use, and I need a good one. I kind of make it up as I go, but lots of paprika, salt and pepper seem to be my favorite additives.
I'll have four fried chickens and a coke.
Bump to find later cuz once you get one....I'll be over, post haste to SAMPLE it!
Carlo? I know you've been pinged once. But hey.
I like using part pancake batter and flour. My ex seemed to like it..he gained weight when we dated.
First catch chicken, I have gotten past this yet.
Now make two separate bowls of flour, paprika, thyme, oregano, black pepper, and Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Toss your fryer pieces into the first bowl of flour. From there, dip them in your mixture of eggs and milk. Then place them in your last bowl of flour. Fry until golden brown.
This is Tre's Slap Yo Mama fried chicken. Of course, I would have marinated the chicken first. Oh, save some grease for your gravy.
OHH! Bookmarking for the responses!
this is my recipe.
It requires a pressure cooker.
soak your chicken overnight in buttermilk. I like to add hotsauce to mine.
Mix together 3 cups of flour 3 tablespoons of salt, 1 tablespoon of pepper, 1 tablespoon of accent, 1 tablespoon of celery salt, 1 tablespoon of cayenne, 1 tablespoon of paprika, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of onion powder.
dredge chicken in flour and let it air dry on a rack for about 5 minutes.
heat oil in pressure cooker(i prefer peanut) until its NO hotter than 300 degrees and only fill the pressure cooker until its a third full, as frying with a pressure cooker can be dangerous make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy.
Place chicken in cooker and seal the pressure cooker. Chicken should take only 8-12 minutes. Depressurize by letting the steam stop or by letting cold water run over it. NEVER just de-seal it when steam is still escaping(personal exprience)
Best tasting chicken, guaranteed.
Got this one from DU.
Get large block of tofu and one large free range chicken- male, female or transgender OK. Fry tofu in pan till mainly edible. Eat tofu, reserving half for later. Place chicken in large paper bag. Smoke a joint, exhaling smoke into bag with chicken. When joint is finished, remove fried chicken from bag and eat remaining tofu to cure munchies. Attend Hate Bush rally with chicken.
Try Knotts Berry Farm's Chicken dinner. Best I ever had. I have no idea how they do it.
Good one. Now all I need is a pressure cooker.
and a lot more here copycat.cdkitchen.com
1 cup coarsely crushed POST TOASTIES Corn Flakes
1 Tbsp. flour
1 cup pancake mix
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup of parm cheese
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1 egg white
6 pieces bone-in chicken, such as breasts, thighs and legs, skinned
PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Combine cereal, flour, pancake mix, salt, pepper, parm cheese and seasoned salt in a shallow dish or pie plate. Beat egg white with 1 Tbsp. water in a shallow bowl. Dip meaty side of each chicken piece in egg white mixture, then in cereal mixture.
PLACE chicken, coating sides up, on baking sheet; spray lightly with cooking spray.
BAKE 40 min. or until chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
Is that a pan fry or a deep fry? Or does it matter? :-)
I've done it in a pressure cooker as well...it's excellent
Thanks for the Idea its right down the street I was married there and had the chicken for our reception awesome chicken and rasalberry pie
Add Paprika, Sage and Black Pepper to taste. Bake, not fry.
Just reading that makes me want to slap my mama. Just kidding. But that sounds really tasty.
Wow!, That recipe reminds me of my younger days!
Just curious. How many requests have there been for a section on FR for FReeper's Recipes?
Whatever recipe you use.. Soaking the chicken overnight in buttermilk will make it awesome. I always buy whole chickens and cut them up myself. I also use a cast iron frying pan... everything else is secondary and done to taste.. But it's that buttermilk that makes it oh so good.
I agree, i have pan fried, baked deep fried but pressure frying is the way to go for me.
Damn! That sounds GOOD.
Try soaking them in yogurt, it works really well too.
Randy, reading aft_lizard's recipe, aft_lizard must either have been the cook at the Clayton Cafe or kidnapped her:
50 North Main Street, Clayton, GA 30525
Hours: 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
Serves chicken daily.
The Clayton Cafe soaks their chicken breasts in buttermilk and uses a pressure cooker. The result: chicken that is absolutely GBD and crunchy on the outside, and steamy tender on the inside.
Your recipe looks good. I've never used a pressure cooker though.. Looks like I'll have to pick one up...
OMG! You've found a way to mix pancakes and fried chicken??? Will you marry me? :D
That is sooooo bad! ;-)
LOL actually I modified it from a supposably KFC knock-off recipe but all they had was salt pepper and accent and they didnt soak it buttermilk. I tweaked the seasonings and of course added the buttermilk with hotsauce. I also lowered the temp as the seasonings get into the meat better that way, a higher temp will make it crunchier but it loses a little glavor in the process.
RjayneJ used to have link on her website but she passed awhile back and I havent' been able to find it since.
Ayone know where it went?
It's not my own recipe, as I blatantly stole it from Alton Brown. Forgive me for my lack of originality in the realm of fried chicken :)
| For the Chicken Curried Dijon Sauce
2 oz Grape seed oil
3/4 lbs chicken wings, roughly chopped with a cleaver
5 cl garlic, peeled and smashed
5 ea shallots
2 ea Oranges, cut in half
2 oz sherry
2 cups white wine
1 pinch saffron
2 tsp peppercorns
| 5 sprigs tarragon, fresh, cut into large pieces
1 Tbsp curry powder
1 Tbsp turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
2 cups Chicken stock
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard (tarragon infused Dijon also works quite well)
1 cup heavy cream
1. Heat the grape seed oil in a large casserole sauce-pan and add the chicken wings. Brown them over medium high heat until nicely colored. Add in the garlic and shallots and continue to cook until they have browned up a bit too. Deglaze pan with white wine and sherry and squeeze the juice from orange halves and leave in pan. Add, curry, turmeric, saffron, peppercorns tarragon, salt, and pepper. Mix well and cover. Continue to cook on low heat for about 15 minutes while you prepare the other flavorings for the sauce.
2. In a separate saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. With a wooden spoon stir in flour to make a light colored roux. Continue stirring until the taste of flour is cooked out, for about 10 minutes. Cook the roux over a low enough flame to keep it from coloring; it should remain a pale white. To avoid lumps continue stirring and slowly pour in the chicken stock. Add mustard and stir until thoroughly combined. Add heavy cream and continue stirring. Once mixture is smooth pour into saucepan with chicken bones and let simmer for a half an hour to let flavors blend. Strain the sauce through a fine sieve, firmly pressing on any solids to extract all flavor.
excuse my bad grammar and spelling.
AB is my patron saint....
He'd DIE for that chicken!! Thank YOU!
I could see where yogurt would work.. add some tang too... thanks...
I think I'm going to check amazon.com for a pressure cooker.
thank you all for your great recipes!
Keep it simple.
I buy packages of chicken legs and place them all on a large cookie sheet - upon which I have already place a piece of "Release" foil.
Then I sprinkle on McCormick's Meat Tenderizer - Seasoned - on both sides of the legs. Then I put the pan of legs in a 325 oven to bake for about 20 minutes - turn the legs over and cook for another 15-20 minutes. They are YUM!!
If you're watching the waistline - just remove the skin before cooking and put the tenderizer directly onto the chicken. I like it both ways.
No fuss, no muss and you can warm them in the microwave the next day.
Try Carlo3b. Last I heard he was selling them. Plus, I think it was on Amazon, but can't remember the complete name.
