David's Southern Style Fried Chicken Recipe

Recommended Posts

Hi this is the way I make Southern Fried Chicken.

Get a pack of chicken pieces from your supermarket,

drumsticks (lower leg),

thighs (upper leg),

ribs,

wings etc

some super markets sell mixed packs and others will only contain one type.

Place pieces into a pot cover with cold water and bring to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer for about 5 - 10 mins (a good indicator is when the meat starts to pull away from the bone on the drumsticks)

Remove pieces to a rack to cool and drain (But retain the cooking liquid)

As the pieces are cooling, prepare the coating and turn your deep fat fryer on to high.

Coating:

gluten-free all purpose flour, season with salt, ground black pepper and ground lemon pepper (if available). occasional small flecks of black pepper should be visible in the flour mix.

You can make it slightly spicy try using American BBQ seasoning (McCormick or similar) or chili flakes.

When the oil is hot and the chicken is cool take a piece momentarily dip it in the cold cooking liquidd cover in the seasoned flour and continue until all the pieces are coated.

Place chicken pieces in hot oil and cook until the coating is golden in colour (no more than 4 pieces at a time) remove and drain on kitchen paper.

P.S.

Remember the chicken is already cooked the browning of the coating and reheating won't take long.

Bet your kids can't tell it from most shop bought fried chicken.

Best Regards,

David

Hey IDB,

"Gluten-free all purpose flour" is a pretty broad term. What's your recipe? Thanks.

Hi Larry mac,

Any readymixed flour will do, Pamelas, BRM etc. or what we call this side of the Atlantic Gluten Free Plain Flour (even Orgran).
