Frying Chicken

I have 4 split chiken breasts that I want to fry for supper tonight. I am going to try out my new deep fryer & according to the manuel, it takes 15-20 min. @ 360F for bone-in chicken pieces. Does this sound about right?(It's a GE 4 liter Profassional Style Deep Fryer) Also, how do you like to prep & bread your chicken for frying?

I use a seasoned flour (flour, season salt, cracked black pepper, garlic powder, oregano, and thyme)flour once, then marinade in buttermilk for an hour, then flour again, then let sit in refrigerator for about an hour, before frying.

15 to 20 minutes at 360 degrees is about right...I usually deep-fry at 350.

Your welcome, crewsk!!!
If you use my method...let me know how it turned out!!!!

Also, the reason why I refrigerate the breaded chicken an hour before frying....






The flour makes less mess in the deep fryer!!!

My chicken sits in buttermilk overnite, I add Franks Hot Sauce (the mixture looks pink) granulated garlic, granulated onion, kosher salt and pepper....Since you dont have overnite..I would let it soak as long as possible. Or you can "brine" your chicken in salt..no sugar..as it will burn when you fry. The idea is to get a good crust but not dry out the meat.. buttermilk or brining and cooking time will help you to achieve this.

I season my flour w/ kosher salt, pepper, paprika, granulated garlic, granulated onion, cayenne and or dry mustard powder, cumin, thyme...bottom line is I make a very seasoned mix! Use your favorite spices...if your family likes curry turn it into curry fried chicken!
I then flour the chicken pieces and let them rest on a rack for up to an hour..as long as they are in a cool place.

I heat my oil to 350 and put dk meat in first as they take longer to cook..about 18-20 min at the most...I then add my white meat in to cook approx 15 min..the pieces are then ready at the same time...I put them on a rack when they are cooked..w/paper towels underneath.

Enjoy!

Hi Crewsk. Here's the recipe I use for my Fried Chicken. I always called it a "marinade", but now I know it's actually a brine. Very flavorful. I usually fry chicken legs for 15 - 20 minutes. Depending on the size of the chicken breats, you might want to let it go 20 minutes, then pull them and probe them with an instant-read thermometer. If it doesn't read 165°F or higher in the thickest part, back into the oil for another 5 minutes or so. If you're only going to fry the 4 pieces, you might want to cut the recipe down a bit.

Fried Chicken
Yields: 12 pieces

12 pieces of chicken
For the marinade:
3 eggs
3 ¼ c cold water
-or- buttermilk
-or- milk
1 ½ T meat seasoning
1 ½ T seasoned salt
For the seasoned flour:
1 ½ T meat seasoning
1 ½ T seasoned salt
3 c flour

Combine the marinade ingredients. Place the marinade and chicken pieces in a mixing bowl or gallon ziplock baggie. Stir the chicken around to coat it. Marinate for several hours or overnight, turning once or twice.
Heat a deep-fryer to 350°F, or heat an inch of oil in a large cast iron skillet. Sift together the seasonings and the flour. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and dredge through to the flour. This may be easier if you do the “shake and bake” style, by placing the flour into a bag and dropping a couple pieces of chicken in and shaking it. You may want to dip the chicken pieces back into the marinade and repeat the breading, for a thicker breading. Deep-fry the chicken pieces until done, about 15 - 20 minutes. When done, remove to a wire rack over a sheet pan to drain.
