DH of 42+ years doesn't give many 5 star ratings "just in case there's something better" gave this the ultimate ... "Oh, Baby, this is a 5 star for sure" ... I'm finished looking for the "perfect" fried chicken recipe! I wasn't sure about the 1 cup of hot sauce ... an absolute must! I did let the chicken set after the last step while the oil was heating since I've heard doing that helps the coating to stay on. Thanks so much, Sharlene!
Wow! I live in South America and miss fried chicken (my favorite food). This was the first time I made it and it turned out so good. It was just spicy enough. My South American boyfriend loved it too and he doesn't like anything too spicy.
This was so delicious, and so easy! This was my first time making fried chicken by myself, and I will continue using this recipe. Used Frank's red hot sauce, and it was perfect, not spicy at all. Coating was crunchy, and the meat was so moist. Husband loved it! Thanks!
I've been frying chicken since I was a teenager and I have to say, this is about the best I've made. It was a big hit with my picky eaters....I'll be making this one again for sure...thanks!
This recipe was fantastic! I love chicken (and especially fried chicken!) so I thought I would give this a try. I followed the recipe exactly, and it came out perfect. I, personally, think it's even better than KFC. I was also a little skeptical about the amount of hot sauce used, but it really doesn't make the chicken spicy. It gives it a tiny kick, but if you're used to eating any spice at all, you may not even notice it. I tossed 1/2 of the chicken I made in some buffalo wing sauce and both sets were fantastic! I would definitely recommend this!
Really good. I used a bit less tabasco cause 1 cup was pretty much the whole bottle, but still came out awesome!
Very good chicken. Sending recipe to friends because its that yummy.
This was the first time I used a deep fryer. My family LOVED this chicken - juicy and tasty. I'll use it again.
I made chicken nuggets with this recipe. I couldn't stop eating them they were so good. I even had some of the leftovers as a snack cold and they were good. My 5 year old thought they were a little spicy but she just kept drinking milk to cool down her mouth while eating them. I am so happy to have found this recipe because I have had a hard time finding good chicken nuggets on the Hungarian economy. Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
I had my first ever success with fried chicken using this recipe. Of course, this means one less thing I'm able to convince the hub to take me out to dinner for! This is really a no-fail recipe for deep fry beginners. I used vegetable oil instead of peanut oil and it still came out crispy, juicy and flavorful. Thanks for the post!
