|i)||All-purpose flour||4 cups|
|ii)||Garlic salt||2 tablespoons|
|vi)||Poultry seasoning||2-1/2 teaspoons|
|vii)||Eggs||2 large ones (3 small)|
|x)||Vegetable oil for deep frying||As per requirement|
Combine 2-2/3 cups flour, 2 tablespoons garlic salt, 1 tablespoon paprika, 2-1/2 teaspoons pepper and 2-1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning in a large shallow dish and mix well.
In another shallow dish, add 1-1/2 cups water and beat the eggs in the same bowl. Add 1 tablespoon salt and the remaining 1-1/3 cup flour as well as ½ teaspoon pepper. Mix this mixture well.
Cut the chicken into medium size pieces. You can skin them if you prefer.
Dip chicken in egg mixture, roll them over until it is well covered with the egg mixture. Place the egg-dipped chicken in the flour mixture and turn it over until it is well coated on all sides.
Heat the oil on a deep-fryer to 375°.
Take several pieces of chicken at a time and fry them in the oil for about 7-8 minutes until they turn golden brown.
After the chicken has turned into a crispy golden-brown color, take them out and drain the oil on paper towels. And voila! Your crispy fried chicken is ready to be served.
You can serve this with simple tomato sauce/ketchup or any dipping sauce of your choice.
- It is best to use any oil having high smoke points like vegetable oil or canola oil for deep frying.
- If you want to make your chicken extra juicy in the inside, you can brine the chicken in some buttermilk beforehand. This will make the chicken softer and juicier.
