Hello Everyone! Welcome back to another blog and welcome to a new category of blogs called Just Cook It Bro! Where I give you easy recipes for beginner chefs or those just not so good in the kitchen. Today’s recipe is a simple fried chicken recipe. Because who doesn’t like fried chicken?
What You Will Need:
- Chicken. ( you can get all wings, all drums, or a mixture of both)
- All-purpose flour. (One bag)
- Plain yellow cornmeal. (One small bag)
- Vegetable oil. (48 fl ounces)
- Season salt.
- A medium-sized frying pan.
- A large mixing bowl.
- If your chicken is frozen put it in a large bowl with warm water at least 2 hours before you start cooking.
- After your chicken is thawed rinse 2- 3 times with cold water to clean your chicken.
- Dry off your chicken with a few paper towels
- In a large bowl combine your chicken with as much season salt as you like. (Keep in mind season salt is strong. Please use in moderation.) Toss until completely covered.
- After making sure your chicken is seasoned, In a separate smaller bowl, pour about 2 cups of all-purpose flour (Adjust measurements to account for how much chicken you have.)
- Coat chicken in flour until fully covered and set it on a large plate.
- Lightly sprinkle cornmeal on your chicken. Flip and repeat.
- Fill up a medium-sized frying pan halfway with vegetable oil, over medium-high heat.
- Wait ten-15 minutes for it to heat up. To test the oil take a small pinch of flour and drop it into the oil. If the flour quickly disperses through the oil it’s ready.
- Carefully place your chicken into the oil. Don’t crowd the pan, you may have to do two batches.
- Let cook, flipping with a pair of tongs every so often until brown and crispy.
- Once finished cooking take out the chicken and place it on a plate layered with a few paper towels to drain excess oil.
- Taste a piece of your chicken to make sure it’s fully cooked. (If you don’t trust your own judgment get a second opinion from a sibling or parent.)
- Pair with something such as corn, rice, or mashed potatoes.
