Crispy Fried Chicken

To make this fried chicken extra crunchy, I use a combination of flour and cornstarch; The combination of both flour with cornstarch produces such a crispy and craggy crust. Also, using buttermilk in marinating the chicken thighs ensure the softness and tenderness of the chicken under the crust.

I use seven marvellous types of spices along with salt and pepper in this fried chicken recipe. You will not believe how good it smells when they are combined together; also, they give the excellent taste to the chicken.

How to make this recipe step by step

Marinating the chicken: In a bowl, add the buttermilk, salt, pepper and the egg whisk until well combined. Then, toss the chicken in the marinade and mix well. After that, cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.

Preparing the breading: In a big plate, add the cornstarch, flour and all the spices, mix everything well. Then set aside.

Frying the chicken: Add oil to a deep pot on medium heat. 

Bring the chicken from the fridge then toss each piece in the breading mixture, make sure to coat all the chicken pieces well from all sides.

Once the oil heated place the chicken carefully in the oil (the oil should be deep enough to cover it).

Fry the chicken for about 6-8 minutes until it becomes dark golden brown.

Tips For The Best Fried Chicken Ever

Buy small size thighs or small size whole chicken because it will fry well and more evenly.

Don’t keep turning the chicken pieces on the other side while frying, so you don’t separate the crust from the chicken; also the oil should be deep enough to cover the whole chicken pieces.

It is preferable to marinate the chicken for an overnight, that will make it so tender and soft.
