    my mom always baked her chicken or boiled it ALL THE TIME UGH...anyway... i was a grown woman and didn't even know how to fry chicken or cook really but i learned trial and error, no body died in the process;) . im still in my transition to eat healthier and if my hubby didn't want it i wouldnt cook it but he likes soul food, and its tempting to me not to grab a few!:p

    i've tried to make a crispy crust and it was too crusty LOL
    i tried to season the flour and it was too seasoned
    i saw my mother in law cook chicken and i didn't follow her exactly because she mixes her flour with the chicken and it's all gooey. i prefer to flour the chix in a seperate bowl.

    if you have the general idea flour them and throw them in the oil (not literally :)) of how to fry chicken i just wanted to share my tips to give you a hand if you never quite got it like me. I just did this year:rolleyes:. (i make the chix on stovetop other frying appliances may vary)



    1. dont put alot of seasoning in the flour unless you're following a precise recipie, very minimal.

    2. use enough oil so that the chicken in half submerged. make like a tiny small flour ball and drop it in the oil, if the oil bubbles around it the oil is ready.

    3. keep your heat on med. not high or the flour will burn and your chicken will be burnt and raw inside and you will think its done. NOT GOOD.

    4.do NOT use egg, it makes the batter gookey it doesn't make it stick better.

    5.just flour them completely, it might look thin but they will get crispy and crunchy as they cook.

    6.when you see the side in the oil looking golden brown and like the flour has hardened turn them. they shouldnt burn because the temp should be med.

    7. as they cook slowly they will get harder and crispy! mmmm

    if it is useful... lemme know how things turn out ;)

    yes, an all purpose seasoning is fine, like old bay, or just salt n pepper. if you put a lot it will taste funny or salty

    peace


    I love fried chicken growing up because all of the woman in my fam could cook.. I mean burn it down!!

    That's how i learned to cook, but i only use olive oil if i'm going to fry it. I usually bake it if i want chicken.

    I didn't even know that people boiled chicken until i went to college and had a dominican roomate from washington heights (a section of manhattan).

    I love to hear about people learning to cook. I don't often fry chicken (have never been a huge fan), but every once in a while I might or the husband will. A another tip, batter your chicken and let it sit for about a half hour to an hour before frying.
