Recipe For Fried Chicken

Reader Recipe: Fried Chicken

Call me crazy — or attribute it to some bizarre form of reverse psychology — but all that hoopla over KFC's grilled chicken left me craving crispy, spicy, hot-out-of-the-oil fried chicken. TeamSugar member GinaGaladriel must have read my mind: using Cajun spices and Goya seasoning, she modified a fried chicken recipe she saw on YouTube to her family's liking. Now that I've witnessed the power of Gina's fried chicken, it may be time to put aside childish thoughts of grilled chicken and whip up a batch of my own chicken-fried goodness. Check out step-by-step photos when you

Gina's Fried Chicken

Ingredients

* Oil
* 3 pounds chicken (pieces of your choice)
* Water
* 10 tsp. chicken seasoning, divided
* 10 tsp. garlic powder, divided
* 8-15 tsp. Cajun seasoning, divided
* Salt
* 1 egg
* 2 envelopes Goya seasoning, divided
* 1 cup flour
* 5 Tsp. Italian seasoning, divided

Directions

Start heating the oil in the deep fry (350°F) enough oil to cover 2/3 of the deep-fryer. Put the chicken in water mixed with 3 tsp. (each) of chicken seasoning, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning and about 8 tsp. salt (make sure the water level covers the chicken) for about 30 minutes to no more than 1 hour.

In a small bowl whisk the egg with 1 tsp. water and 3 tsp. (each) of chicken seasoning, garlic powder, and Cajun seasoning, 1 envelope of Goya seasoning, and 2 tsp. Italian seasoning. Separately, mix together flour and the rest of the seasonings. Discard the water from the brine bath. One by one put the chicken pieces in the egg mixture, and then cover with the flour mixture.

Fry the chicken in the deep fryer about 12 minutes per piece if the chicken has bones, and about 8-9 minutes if it doesn't (wings will take about 7 minutes). Move constantly so it doesn't stick and all the sides cook evenly. Lay the fried chicken in paper towel to absorb the majority of the fat. Enjoy!
Notes
* Preparation method taken from CCC — Chennai Chukka Chicken, which contains other ingredients such as garlic ginger paste and does not contain other ingredients I used.

** The amount of time will depend on the number and size of chicken pieces, and piece selection.
