I make up my own batter for the coating. I use Italian bread crumbs mixed with cornbread mix, an egg or two and some milk. I make the batter pretty thick. Dip and fry.
Apparently it's national fried chicken day, so I think I'll make that for the family for dinner. Any suggestions on how to make fried chicken more "interesting"?
Marinade it first in milk for about 30 minutes , pat dry and then coat it as usual. The milk makes it moist and juicy. It also keeps the meat looking white.
Not being much of a fried food eater and especially fried chicken, I always preferred chicken fricassee ! Check this recipe out. It's really good!
My household eats low carb. So after dipping the chicken in egg wash it goes into a mixture of crushed pork rinds, dried red pepper, coconut flour, and salt. Tastes so much better than the conventional recipe. Plus frying the pork rinds gives it a cool texture.
