Wow. I have not made this particular recipe, but I do make fried chicken often. I just have to respond to these ridiculous comments. Did ya'll even bother to read the note from Spice Guru? The nutritional information is NOT correct. MSG is just a flavor enhancer. You do not have to add it. I don't and my chicken turns out great. If you are concerned about calories, you should not even be looking at fried chicken recipes. To all members of the "Food Police" - why don't you just stick with celery and carrots and leave REAL food to those of us who appreciate it?
Awesome Recipe!! So detailed on how it's made..Great job!! Looking forward to more from you..To all you Nay Sayers out there....Seriously???? Worried about calories and unhealthy eating but you seek out a KFC Extra Crispy Recipe??? What'd you think the coating was made with....ground up cardboard??? Wow!! Want to eat healthy, stay slim but look for foods like this??
I wanted to try this even though the Calories are High, But I just could not get past the Fact that this calls for "MSG!" You know Accent, pure M S G.
This is too many unnecessary spices. This better recipe tastes exactly like KFC, use a pressure fryer aka Chicken Bucket for best results. Ingredients 1 whole fryer chicken, cut up into 8 pieces Kentucky Fried Chicken marinade 6 to 8 cups shortening 1 cup milk 1 beaten egg 2 cups all purpose flour ? teaspoon paprika ? teaspoon baking powder ? teaspoon garlic powder ¾ teaspoon MSG 2 ½ teaspoons salt ¾ teaspoon pepper For the Kentucky Fried Chicken Marinade: 1¼ cups cold water 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon potassium chloride or Adobo seasoning 1 tablespoon MSG (monosodium glutamate) ? tablespoon garlic powder 2 tablespoons bottled chicken base Instructions Combine all the marinade ingredients to make the marinade. Trim any excess fat and skin from the chicken pieces and marinate them for a couple of hours. Mix the milk with the egg in a bowl. Combine the other dry ingredients in another bowl. Drain the marinated chicken on paper towels. Dip each chicken piece in the egg and milk, and then coat it in the dry flour mixture. Dip into the egg and milk mixture again then back in the flour. Make sure every piece is well coated. Preheat the shortening in a deep fryer to 350 degrees F. Stack the chicken on a plate until each piece is coated. Drop the chicken pieces into the hot shortening, one at a time with tongs being careful not to splash any of the hot oil to avoid burns. Oven mits are a good idea. Fry 4 pieces of chicken at a time until golden brown. This will take 12 to 15 minutes. Stir the chicken halfway through the cooking time for an even finish. Drain the chicken pieces on wire racks for 5 minutes and serve hot.
I just made this tonight using boneless chicken breast without brining. I deep fried at the same temperature for only 5 minutes. This is the absolute best ever use of boneless chicken breast I ever had. Crispy, tasty and addictive. Thanks you for a definite master of a recipe.
I really, really wanted to prepare this, but with the carbs soooo high for 1 serving, my diabetes went crazy on it's own just knowing how high it was haha. Sorry just couldn't risk it :(
