Crispy Fried Chicken In A Skillet


Recommended Posts

Chicken turned out juicy with a a nice crispy bite from the batter. Recipe here 

Cooked the chicken pieces at 180F for 1 hour to get some smokiness to the chicken first before adding batter mix (but not that necessary can be fried straight away) Fried it using a block of 250g Trex Vegetable Fat in the skillet and let it get up to a temperature of 380F, which allowed the fat to bubble but not burn the chicken whilst cooking, it was turned once and had approx 10 minutes each side and was cooked through thoroughly..

Will experiment with some herbs and spices in the flour next time as think that will improve it even more, if I can find the right mix.

Thinking of doing something similar for next weekends WoodHomeSmoke!

Sounds good, can recommend frying in Vegetable Shortening (Block of Trex or similar) never used it before for shallow frying in a skillet, but doesn't burn and hardly any grease on food....
