Growing up with the taste of fried chicken was mostly limited to the occasional trip to KFC. It wasn’t until later that I realized just how crazy people get for the dish, arguing fiercely over the best recipes. At Grandbaby-Cakes, we give equal opportunity to fried chicken lovers and aims to acknowledge you all about all versions of fried chicken recipes.
Some of the Insane Fried Chicken Recipe
Southern Fried Chicken Recipe: If your ideal fried chicken comes from the southern part of the world, then this is the recipe for you. We brine the chicken in seasoned buttermilk to make it extra tender and dredge it in a mixture of flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and spices before frying. The secret to an extra-crispy crust is to pour a few tablespoons of the buttermilk mixture into the flour – the clumps mean more surface area and more surface area means more crunches.
The Best Korean Fried Chicken Recipe: If any place can give the fried chicken of the American South a run for its money, it’s Korea. As opposed to the thick, craggy crust typical of Southern fried chicken, the coating on Korean fried chicken is thin and ultra-crisp. We thin out the cornstarch, flour, and baking powder with vodka, which inhibits gluten development and keeps the crust light.
Lemon-Marinated Tuscan-Jewish Fried Chicken: The Jewish community of Tuscany probably isn’t the first group you associate with fried chicken, but this recipe might change that. The chicken is marinated briefly with lemon juice and spices and coated with eggs and flour before being fried. Olive oil is traditional for the frying, but vegetable oil is cheaper and will let the chicken’s flavor come through more clearly.
Japanese Style Fried Chicken Thighs: Fried chicken isn’t typically friendly to those with gluten intolerances, but this recipe comes to the rescue by omitting the flour in favor of a double dredging in potato starch. Flavor the chicken with traditional Japanese ingredients like soy sauce, ginger, and sesame oil, but we also add buttermilk to ensure the meat is perfectly tender.
So, which type of fried chicken recipe you want to prepare is entirely depending on your taste flavor. Explore grandbaby-cakes for more delicious fried chicken recipes.
