this is a great technique! i have tried it a couple of times now. you get a nice crispy chicken that doesn't have too much coating on it. i play around with the seasonings in the coating; the main thing here is the technique which yields a reliable result. since fried chicken is one of my weaknesses, this will definitely be in regular rotation for us.
So yummy! It's hard to go wrong with any kind of fried chicken so I knew this would be good. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts just because that's what we prefer. The chicken itself was prety moist and juicy. This is definitely a make again recipe. Thanks for posting!! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag.
This was a really nice recipe. I have made chicken similar to this, but never would have thought to use the curry powder or corn meal. This combo complements the taste of chicken just right, so it tastes like chicken. Thanks for posting.
