Its very important to let people know that the pressure cooker needs to be a low pressure not high....KFC use low pressure cooker...using a hign pressure is life threatning!!!!!
This does not give proper instruction you can not use a pressure cooker...this is meant for a pressure fryer....never use a pressure cooker to deep fry under pressure
We love this recipe. The only thing I changed was dropped the salt down to 1 Tablespoon & no MSG. Also, if you use boneless, skinless chicken you can use a regular deep fryer. Do everything as the recipe says, then put 2 - 3 tenders in the deep fryer. Flip them over after about 3 minutes and wait until they float. We have this at least once a month because we like it so well.
DANGEROUS RECIPE! No home pressure cooker can be used for this recipe; you are better off using a deep fryer. This requires a commercial pressure fryer, which has a max pressure of 10 psi. You don't want to chance scalding oil blocking your vent. For example, Kuhn Rikon says to use a MAX of 1/4 cup oil for Light "Fried" Drumsticks - 2-Qt. Pressure Cooker and to use only LOW pressure.
This is about my 3rd re-review of this recipe. I'm not going to go into all details of what I posted first few times, but I'll give a short analysis. Basically at first I thought it was close to KFC but way too salty. I tried both cutting the salt to 1 Tbs and 1.5, and it only came out ok. No time was the texture like KFC. Then I went and bout some KFC original to compare, and I realized it was not as much like KFC as I thought. It looked like KFC but the taste and smell were not like KFC as much as I thought. I will try it again or I might have to tweak it. It was good, but more could be done to make it taste exactly or almost exactly like KFC.
I can't rate this recipe,because I haven't made it. Why? because I have an electric pressure cooker, and after reading the first 2 reviews decided against trying it. (thanks YvesLauzon and Bluemonkey) This cooking method definitely needs clarification. I contacted the "chef" about this,hope to get some kind of response. My instruction manual for the cooker does not address cooking with oil, one way or the other. I was sooooooo looking forward to a KFC type of chicken, so will keep looking.
I found this to be quite salty. Is it really 3 Tablespoons salt?
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We live 100kms away from our nearest kfc. Now I can make this treat for my family and they wont miss out. Many thanks !!
