Deep Fried Chicken
The meaty parts of the bird are great for making this recipe, so get yourself some thighs, drumsticks and/or breast meat and you can go ahead and make this fantastic pecan-crusted chicken. The buttermilk coating gets it really moist and tasty, but you can use regular eggs or milk instead of the buttermilk if that is what you have.
Making the Perfect Batter
While the chicken is being brined, soaking up the sweet, salty buttermilk to become moist and delicious, you can prepare the ingredients for the batter. You will need more buttermilk for that, along with a flour and ground pecan mixture. If you only have whole pecans, simply pop them in a blender or food processor to pulverize them and get the consistency right. If the pieces are too big they will not stick to the chicken properly. The chicken is then coated in the batter and then it is ready to cook, so get your oil nice and hot, even in a deep-fryer or pot on the stove.
If you are making a lot, you can keep a batch of fried chicken warm in a 300 degrees F oven while frying the remainder. This is handy to know if you are making enough fried chicken for a crowd because this recipe is so easy to double or triple. Now this might look like ordinary fried chicken but as soon as it is cool enough for you to bite into you will be able to taste the pecan flavor in the batter, and that is really special! Make this recipe and you will absolutely not regret it. Continue reading
All the parts of a chicken can be deep-fried, so whether you favor breasts, thighs, drumsticks or a mixed selection of chicken pieces, there is a deep-fried chicken recipe for you. The following recipe is made using drumsticks. The chicken is boiled to begin with, and the main reason for that is to cook the chicken through. When deep-frying chicken, you do not always use very thick pieces, so it makes sense to cook them through before the frying stage. Then you can focus on getting the chicken pieces really crispy.
When the coating is perfectly crispy and golden brown, there is no need to leave the chicken in the oil so the meat can cook through because it is already cooked through. Let the chicken cool for about 10 minutes before serving it. Do not worry that it will get cold because it will not. The chicken is extremely hot when it comes out of the oil, so just let it cool off for 10 minutes and you can serve it warm with your favorite side dishes.
Contrasting the chicken with the sides is always nice so perhaps make a potato salad or coleslaw recipe (remember, homemade is best!) and serve that with the chicken. This recipe features cayenne and paprika and those are great spices to use for fried chicken because they add a touch of spice. If you wish to increase the amount then go ahead. Continue reading
