Kentucky Fried Chicken
This chicken is fried in a pressure fryer.
- Ready In:
- 1hr 10mins
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 teaspoon msg (monosodium glutamate-you can use Accent Flavor Enhancer)
- 6 cups Crisco cooking oil
- 2 frying chickens, with skin, each cut into 6 pieces
- In a small bowl combine the egg and milk.
- In a separate bowl, combine the remaining four dry ingredients.
- Dip each piece of chicken into the milk mixture until fully moistened. Roll the moistened chicken into the flour mixture until completely coated.
- Pour the oil into the pressure fryer and heat over medium heat to about 400.
- In groups of 4 or 5, drop the chicken pieces into the oil and lock the lid into place. When the steam begins shooting through the pressure release, set the timer for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, release the pressure according to manufacturer's instruct ions, and remove the chicken to paper towels or a metal rack to drain.
- Repeat with remaining chicken.
- TIDBIT: If you prefer not to use MSG, you may substitute an additional 1/2 TBS. of salt. Be aware however that using MSG produces the best clone of KFC's fried chicken.

Wow! Very bland for a KFC copycat recipe! There are many KFC copycat recipes that actually use the "11 herbs and spices" approach with much better results.<br/><br/>Actually, there are no spices in this recipe besides black pepper. Salt and MSG don't count, do they?<br/><br/>I cooked this in a Pressure Magic, (also know as a Fagor Classic, clamp-style pressure cooker, 6L), pressure fryer. It's commonly sold at Fairs, Boat Shows, RV Shows, and they always demonstrate "pressure frying" during their shows, and their online video).<br/><br/>The chicken came out perfectly crispy on the outside and very juicy on the inside! It really wasn't bad at all. However, it tastes just like good "generic" home-cooked fried chicken, and NOT Kentucky Fried Chicken.2Replies 1
