Top 5 Tips for the Best Fried Chicken

Fryin’ Up Flavortown 

Is it just us, or does your stomach growl every time you watch a competitor in Flavortown Market whip up some golden-brown, perfectly salty fried chicken?

Don’t Stress Over Marinating

We’ve made a lot of fried chicken in our kitchen and have found that marinating longer doesn’t always mean more flavor.

Make It Extra Crunchy

When breading chicken, we’ve usually tried super hard to keep the wet and dry ingredients separate from one another — until now.

Blend Frying Fats

We love to combine different oils and fats to help play with color and flavor. For example, adding a little vegetable shortening will ensure that your chicken is nice and golden-brown.

Let the Temperature Drop

Frying longer and at a lower temperature will ensure that your chicken is cooked through and juicy on the inside, and golden and crispy on the outside. Invest in a deep-fat-fry thermometer and bring your oil up to 350 degrees F. 

Season It One Last Time

As soon as your chicken comes out of the fryer, give it one last light sprinkle of salt for instant salty satisfaction.
