What are the secrets of frying chicken perfectly?

Every chef wants the frying chicken to be perfect. Sometimes the frying of chicken makes the chicken stiff and hard. Sometimes we see the crumbs and four coatings scrambled and shattered. Sometimes the heat makes the chicken dark brown or nearly black.

So, how to prevent all these, and what are the tips and tricks to have a crispy crunchy perfectly fried chicken? In this Al Baik chicken broast recipe, you will get this information as a bonus.

Get Chicken Pieces: Avoid buying the whole chicken and cutting the pieces at home as it would be difficult to do so. So, instead, buy chicken pieces and prefer thighs, and drumsticks. Some people avoid frying breast pieces due to their time-consuming frying process and not-so-juicy presentation

Do dry brining: Similarly, before the marination process, you can also do the ‘Dry Brine method’. This is a technique where chicken is marinated with salt and left overnight or for a few hours. The technique will help in maintaining the juiciness of the meat even after frying.

Use a covered frying pan: Additionally, you can use the Dutch oven or any lid-covered frying pan similar to the instant pot or pressure cooker. This covered frying technique will keep the meat juicy and tender and will prevent the meat from becoming stiff.

Defroze and Cool down the chicken: One more thing you must consider is to let the chicken melt down completely and not in cold conditions. If the chicken is cold and fried instantly, the coating will probably not stick to the chicken pieces and will come off.

Use fresh oil: Last but not least, constantly keep your oil checked for its freshness. Too much old oil will not the frying chicken the best meal you eat. This might affect the looks and taste of fried chicken very badly.

Oil should be hot: Similarly, always do the frying when the oil is hot. The oil should be preheated to 365 F before the frying starts and during the frying, maintain the temperature between 350 to 360 F. For that, you can use an instant pot or pressure cooker with a thermometer attached or you can also use the hand thermometer with other frying equipment
