KFC Extra Crispy Chicken

KFC uses pressure fryers to fry chicken, which is risky to do at home. If you are using a deep fryer , fry a few pieces at a time for about 20 minutes, covered, turning occasionally. Likewise, if pan frying, cook, covered, turning occasionally for about 30 minutes. As always, with chicken, check the middle of a large piece to check for doneness. Allow to drain on paper towels when cooking is completed.


1 (2 to 3 pound) cut up chicken
1 quart water
3 tablespoons salt (for soaking)
1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon Accent (MSG)
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Soybean oil (no substitutions) for frying

Allow chicken to soak in salted water for 30 minutes

Mix egg and milk in a bowl. Mix flour, Accent, salt and pepper in another bowl. Preheat deep fryer to 350 F, or place 3/4 inch oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Dry chicken with paper towels. Dredge in flour mixture. Dip into milk-egg mixture, then back into flour mixture. DO this one piece at a time making sure there is total coverage over entire surface of chicken in each step.

Thank you b-man for all your help. sorry i goofed, thank goodness you are all so forgiving. Below is my recipe for Pad Thai from Americas Test Kitchen, I made it before and i liked it and not to difficult to make.

6 oz vermicelli or rice noodles
2 T peanut butter
5 T soy sauce or tamarind
1 T brown sugar
2 scrambled eggs
6 diced scallions
5 cloves pressed garlic
1/3 cup vinegar
quartered lime

cook, rinse and refrigerate the noodles ahead of time. In a bowl mix the peanut butter, soy sauce, and sugar. In the wok, saute the scallions and garlic. You can add bean sprouts at this point too. After a few minutes, add the noodles, and stir-fry them for about 5 minutes. Then add the mixture in the bowl and the vinegar. Cook this for a couple more minutes. Lastly, add the eggs and peanuts, and heat until hot. Serve with the lime wedges on the side

You didn’t goof my friend!
