    The Spice Guru's Note:

    My recipe for a real crowd-pleasing fried chicken made with corn flour (masa harina). 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!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    CHICKEN

    • 8 -16 assorted skin-on frying chicken
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper

    BREADING

    EGGWASH

    FRYING OIL

    • peanut oil

    Directions:

    1. 1
      NOTE: USE ONLY LAWRY'S SEASONED SALT, OR PREPARE MY Lawry's Seasoned Salt (Copycat). TO MAKE CORNFLOUR, FINELY GRIND CORN MEAL IN A CLEAN SPICE MILL OR COFFEE GRINDER TO YIELD 2 TABLESPOONS.
    2. 2
      MODERATELY season chicken with salt and freshly ground pepper; RUB seasoning well into chicken.
    3. 3
      IN a large bowl add the BREADING ingredients except the flour and cornstarch; COMBINE ingredients well using a whisk; ADD the flour and cornstarch; WHISK well until mixture is thoroughly blended.
    4. 4
      IN a medium to large bowl, beat 4 large eggs; ADD the chicken pieces and turn to coat well; TRANSFER a few pieces chicken at a time into the breading container; ROLL chicken in breading until well-coated; GENTLY shake excess breading from chicken; PLACE breaded chicken on a platter and repeat procedures with remaining chicken; LET chicken rest a few minutes to absorb breading.
    5. 5
      ADD the manufacturer's recommended amount frying oil for deep-frying; PLACE deep-fryer basket into place in deep-fryer; PREHEAT fryer to 315°F (or preheat enough fat to immerse chicken completely in deep heavy stovetop pot between 315°F to 325°F, using a standard deep-fryer thermometer to gauge).
    6. 6
      CAREFULLY drop each piece breaded chicken one at a time, gently into the deep-fryer basket without crowding (if a standard size home fryer is used, add no more than 2-3 pieces at a time); (if stovetop frying, gently place breaded chicken pieces into hot oil using tongs, turning once halfway through frying duration).
    7. 7
      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); BLOT chicken lightly to absorb excess oil.
    8. 8
      MAINTAIN frying fat temperature for each new batch and repeat the same cooking/steaming procedures for the remaining chicken.
    9. 9
      REHEAT chicken before serving, on grill-inserted broiler pan(s) in a preheated oven until warmed (keep oven temperature at 170°F (do not keep chicken in oven over 25 minutes, since it will lose moisture and flavor at that point).
    10. 10
      SERVE and enjoy!
