DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk together all marinade ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Add chicken, making sure it is covered with marinade. Chill, covered, stirring twice, about 24 hours.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together all dredging ingredients in a large bowl. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Dredge each piece of chicken in seasoned flour and put on a large baking sheet. Let stand about 10 minutes.
  • Heat 2 inches oil in a wide 8- to 9 1/2-quart pot over moderately high heat until a deep-fat thermometer registers 365 to 375°F (Our pot was 12 inches wide and 5 inches deep; if you don’t have that wide a pot, you can fry the chicken in two batches.).
  • Fry chicken, turning a few times, 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown, then drain on a rack.
