    Cap'n Ron's Note:

    I've been wanting to make these ever since I came up with Better than Granny's, Maple Fried Chicken. So here I am with some extra chicken breasts, and figured that this was the time. They have a nice crispy texture. with the hint of Maple Syrup to the chicken. Butt Kickin' Blacken contains neither salt nor sugar, and is available at If you use a different spice blend, you will probably have to adjust for their salt content.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8-10



    Units: US | Metric


    Four Mixture


    1. 1
      Slice the chicken into 3 thin pieces, then cut each piece in half.
    2. 2
      Make the brine by combining the first 5 ingredients. Place the chicken in a plastic bag, add the marinade, and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but 24 hours is OK. Leaving the chicken in the brine overnight will give the chicken enough time to absorb the flavor of the Maple Syrup.
    3. 3
      Mix the flour and seasonings together in a large flat pan like a jelly roll pan (I use a half chafer pan 'cause of the high sides. Take the chicken out of the bag with tongs, lay in the flour mixture then turn over. Take 3 legs and 3 thighs out to coat with this flour mixture. Rub the flour into the chicken with your hands, don't shake off the excess and place in a pan to get ready for frying.
    4. 4
      Heat the oil to about 300°F in a black frying pan, and place the chicken in being careful not to splash the oil.
    5. 5
      Leave the chicken alone for 10 - 12 minutes. When you start to see some blood being forced out of the chicken (this means that the chicken is cooking), carefully turn them over. Leave another 10 - 12 minutes. The second side should be well colored.
    6. 6
      Place them either on paper towels, or on a rack in a sheet pan, and season immediately with salt and a little more Butt Kickin' Blacken.
