What’s the secret to crispy fried chicken?


The batter contains equal parts cornstarch and flour to ensure a shatteringly crisp crust. The Chicken Fried Recipe also calls for baking powder to create a crust that’s airy without a trace of doughiness. The batter relies on black pepper, paprika, and cayenne for a “simple but unambiguous flavor” (just be forewarned, the amount of black pepper is intentionally heavy-handed).The batter contains no dairy. Cook’s Country replaced the milk in the batter with water. The logic behind this? “When wet batter hits hot oil, the moisture in the batter vaporizes, leaving behind the solids that adhere to the chicken. With milk, the sugars in the milk solids browned too fast and produced a soft crust.”Are you looking for great ideas for Chicken Fried Recipe side dishes?
