Just Cook It Bro!: Fried Chicken

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. 


  1. If your chicken is frozen put it in a large bowl with warm water at least 2 hours before you start cooking. 
  2. After your chicken is thawed rinse 2- 3 times with cold water to clean your chicken. 
  3. Dry off your chicken with a few paper towels
  4. 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.
  5.  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.)
  6. Coat chicken in flour until fully covered and set it on a large plate. 
  7. Lightly sprinkle cornmeal on your chicken. Flip and repeat. 
  8. Fill up a medium-sized frying pan halfway with vegetable oil, over medium-high heat. 
  9. 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.
  10. Carefully place your chicken into the oil. Don’t crowd the pan, you may have to do two batches.
  11. Let cook, flipping with a pair of tongs every so often until brown and crispy. 
  12. Once finished cooking take out the chicken and place it on a plate layered with a few paper towels to drain excess oil. 
  13. 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.) 
  14. Pair with something such as corn, rice, or mashed potatoes.    
  15. Enjoy!
