I have been cooking fried chicken at least once a week for a month now. I am in love with this dairy and soy free Louisiana Fried Chicken Seasoning! I use to be terrible at making fried chicken. But at last! I have finally learned how to make a great tasting crunchy fried chicken!
In this post I will share with you my tips on how to make the perfect fried chicken!
****Use Thin sliced chicken breasts. This is something that I’ve learned to help with cooking the chicken to perfection. When I try and fry big chunks of chicken I always burn it or it’s under cooked. Plus, I like having a smaller size chicken pieces for texture reasons anyway!*****
To get started on the fried chicken get 2 medium sized shallow bowls. Mix 1 egg in one bowl and pour in your Louisiana seasoning in the other. (you could also add in some Panko crumbs to the seasoning bowl for an extra crunch-they are also dairy and soy free! Both can be found in your local Walmart)
Next place a large pan on stove and pour in vegetable oil until it’s about a quarter inch deep.
Heat oil slightly over medium heat. To test if the oil is ready drop some water in and see if it sizzles. If it sizzles then the oil is ready!
Grab your thin sliced chicken and drench in the egg and then coat with the seasoning.
Lay it into the oil slowly and continue until pan is full (don’t overcrowd though!)
Cook on each side for about 6 minutes or until it’s golden brown. Repeat on the other side. Make sure you watch them so they don’t burn! No one wants to eat burnt chicken. If you notice the chicken isn’t getting cooked inside but is starting to burn on the outside then turn down the temperature. Sometimes the oil gets too warm and just needs to be turned down a little.
Once it’s fully cooked add it to a paper towel covered plate. Having it rest on a towel helps with soaking up some of the extra oil from the chicken. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to bite into oily chicken. We can leave the grease to the pizzas and hamburgers.
That’s it! You now know how to be a pro at making fried chicken.
Let me know how you did!
