chicken recipe - Crispy Fried Chicken VERY GOOD

Chicken recipe - Crispy Fried  Chicken VERY GOOD - Crispy fried chicken VERY GOOD is one of those foods that makes everyone hungry . It so tasty...We experimented for many years before developing this easy recipe .It's bits and pieces of hints I had heard over the years .I had many compliments on this chicken recipe . .Most of this chicken is dependent on your own taste .It's more a matter of preparation and cooking method . Try this chicken recipe for your entire family ...

Make extra crispy and crunchy breading like KFC-
The way to get crispy chicken is double breading the chicken and immersion frying .Basically , you need a tub with your flour and seasoning in it , a basin for water and someplace to place the breaded product .You should also invest in a shaker basket of some sort -you can use a strainer or whatever you have that you can put chicken in and clean afterwards that also has holes to allow the flour excess to fall away from the chicken.Once you have the station set up , you are ready to start breading .

Take your chicken pieces and dip in the water , then place them in the flour .Remove from the flour and shake the excess off the chicken (preferably back into the flour basin ).Then re-dip into the water , straight up and down to ensure very little breading loss .Then back into the shaker .By the way , the shaker is also how you develop the little crispy crumblies that dot the outside of fried chicken .Then you deep fat fry in oil that is deep enough to fully cover the chicken .

Also you should use cake flour if you can get it .The flour that KFC and others use is extremely fine and that is going to be the closest thing you will find to what you are looking for .
