When it comes to fried chicken, the secret to having a perfect golden crispy chicken is the temperature of the oil which needs to reach 165 degrees. Usually dipped in batter or seasoned flour before you cook them, this helps to protect and further seal in the moisture. The usual method of fried chicken is to coat the chicken or dredge it in seasoned flour. Both methods work well when making fried chicken.
Tips for Frying Chicken
➡️ Don’t crowd the pan with too much chicken. Doing this will cause the oil temperature to drop, making the breading greasy along with increasing your cooking time.
➡️ Don’t cook the chicken too cold. Doing so will drop the oil temperature and can cause your chicken to cook unevenly. It’s best to take out your chicken from the fridge thirty minutes before.
➡️ It’s important to season the breading otherwise, the seasoning won’t touch the meat once coated.
