Fried Chicken / KFC style Fried Chicken

Fried Chicken / KFC style Fried Chicken is a popular non vegetarian starter these days. From kids to adults everyone relish this appetizer. I tried to replicate the recipe at my own kitchen and it has turned out pretty good. It may not be the exact same recipe however I can say it is quite similar to the famous fried chicken retail chain. Fried chicken is very popular among all age groups so you can opt is as a starter for your home party and I bet every body will enjoy this crispy fried chicken.

I have boiled the chicken 50% which reduce your marination time. Sometimes though you marinate the chicken for longer period of time due to the improper heat distribution during frying chicken may not be well cooked from all the side. So this is a major concern however if you half boil the chicken you can easily overcome this problems. In methods I have used salt in different stages and every time I used it in limited quantity. If you think you can add more salt in one step let me tell you that is not going to work. Limited use of salt in every stage will help to cook the chicken in different stages as well as salt penetrates in each layers and makes your chicken tasty.  So what are you waiting for? Try Fried Chicken/ KFC style Fried chicken at home and share your feedback with me!

5. Now take this flour mixture in a paper bag.

6. Next dip the boiled chicken pieces in the egg-milk batter and place the chicken pieces into the flour mixture bag and shake well. You can put few pieces (2 to 3 pieces) at a time, so that all the pieces get coated well.

7. Take out the chicken pieces from bag and tap the chicken pieces so that the extra flour can be removed.

8. Follow the similar steps for the remaining pieces. Keep the coated chicken pieces in refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes.
