    The Spice Guru's Note:

    My reverse-engineered recipe for Banquet's classic "Crispy Fried Chicken" captures the flavor and crunch of the original -- with a moist, fresh, tender homestyle quality. Everyone in my family unanimously loves this recipe best out of ALL of my fried chicken recipes, if that tells you something! PLEASE NOTE: The Nutritional Information listing here is inaccurate -- since only a fraction of flour and salt actually end up in the finished product. So be aware -- the suggested sodium, sugar, carbohydrate and calorie levels are ridiculously exaggerated!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    CHICKEN

    • 8 -16 pieces premium quality fresh chicken

    BRINE

    BREADING

    WATER WASH

    DEEP-FRYING FAT (CANOLA OR VEGETABLE OIL OKAY)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      RINSE chicken; MARINATE chicken at least 2 hours in refrigerator, in the thoroughly blended and dissolved BRINE solution.
    2. 2
      GRIND soya granules (texturized soy protein) in a clean spice mill or coffee grinder (preferably, grind in two batches), until 4 tablespoons are yielded; GRIND any other seasonings that need to be ground, separately (grind as finely as possible -- especially fennel seeds).
    3. 3
      MEASURE the BREADING ingredients into a large bowl except the flour and cornstarch; BLEND mixture well using a whisk; BREAK up any clumps if present using the back of a spoon; MIX in 3 1/2 cups pre-sifted all-purpose flour plus 1/2 cup packed cornstarch, using the whisk to blend well.
    4. 4
      POUR 2 quarts warm water into a large container for the WATER WASH.
    5. 5
      REMOVE chicken from the BRINE using tongs.
    6. 6
      DIP each breaded portion chicken at a time into the BREADING until evenly coated.
    7. 7
      DIP chicken into the WATER WASH, followed with the BREADING again; REMOVE double-breaded chicken with tongs and place on a rack; ALLOW chicken to rest and absorb breading for a few minutes.
    8. 8
      PREHEAT manufacturer's recommended amount of frying fat in deep-fryer to 315°F (OR) preheat enough fat to immerse chicken completely in deep heavy stovetop pot to 315°F (maintain, using a deep-fryer thermometer to gauge).
    9. 9
      ADD breaded chicken to the elevated fry basket in deep-fryer without crowding (if a standard size home fryer is used, add no more than 2-3 pieces at a time); LOWER the basket slowly into the hot fat (or gently lower breaded chicken pieces using tongs into stovetop pot, turning once halfway through frying duration); FRY chicken between 15-18 minutes until golden brown and fully cooked, depending on chicken portions/sizes (juices should run clear when chicken is done).
    10. 10
      DRAIN chicken on wire rack over baking sheet; TRANSFER into a preheated 170°F oven until all chicken has been fried; SERVE and enjoy!
