DIRECTIONS

  • Trim any excess skin and fat from the chicken pieces.
  • Preheat the shortening in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the beaten egg and milk in a medium bowl.
  • In another medium bowl, combine the remaining coating ingredients (flour, salt, pepper and MSG).
  • When the chicken has marinated, transfer each piece to paper towels so that excess liquid can drain off.
  • Working with one piece at a time, first dip in egg and milk then coat the chicken with the dry flour mixture, then the egg and milk mixture again, and then back into the flour.
  • Be sure that each piece is coated very generously.
  • Stack the chicken on a plate or cookie sheet until each piece has been coated.
  • Drop the chicken, one piece at a time into the hot shortening.
  • Fry half of the chicken at a time (4 pieces) for 12-15 minutes, or until it is golden brown.
  • You should be sure to stir the chicken around halfway through the cooking time so that each piece cooks evenly.
  • Remove the chicken to a rack or towels to drain for about 5 minutes before eating.
  • Note: I suggest (CopyCat) Kentucky Fried Chicken Marinade #75408.
