KFC – FRIED CHICKEN

My friend Saima Amir took classes of KFC copy cat recipes  I am thankful to her because she shared all recipes with me. Very interesting thing is , I am using this recipe for fried fish also . You can take fish fillet and marinate for few minutes then in the same batter fry it. I named this dish as KFF….lol

Ingredients :

8        chicken pieces

1 quart Water

3 tablespoons Salt (used for soaking)

 

BATTER FOR COATING:

½  cup     milk

2   egg      beaten

4tbsp      flour

1 tbsp      Corn flour

½tsp       white pepper

1 tablespoon      salt (for recipe)

1 teaspoon         black pepper

1tbsp     Worcestershire sauce

1/2tsp       backing powder

METHOD:

Place chicken into large bowl of salted water and allow to soak for approximately 30 minutes.Or can soak 3-4 hours also.

Beat egg and mix with milk in a bowl. Add and mix 2 flours in a dish and all other ingredients in a separate bowl.

Remove chicken from water and dry it by using paper towels.

Place in flour mixture, dip in milk/eggs mixture, and then back into flour mixture ,coat it properly. Do one piece at a time making sure that each piece is covered completely during each step.

KFC uses pressure cookers to fry chicken, which I don’t recommend you do at home. If you are using a deep fryer, cook a few pieces at a time for about 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Similarly, if pan frying, cook covered, turning occasionally for about 25 – 30 minutes.

Make sure you check the middle of the largest chicken piece cooked to check for doneness. (No pink)

When done, allow chicken pieces drain on paper towels and enjoy with your family  🙂
