KFC Chicken-a-like
« on: January 07, 2012, 10:35 PM »
just made this for the first time tonight....
great KFC taste...done in the oven :) healthy option

ingredients:
4 chicken drumsticks
4 chicken thighs
200g plain flour
1.5 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground black pepper
0.5 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp paprika
2 eggs

method:
mix all dry ingredients in a tub/bowl
mix 2 eggs in a seperate tub/bowl
take a drumstick/thigh and roll in egg mixture
then roll in flour mixture
then roll in egg mixture
then roll in flour mixture
repeat for all chicken pieces

place coated chicken pieces on a grill rack with a tray below making sure pieces are suspended from tray below
otherwise they will be "wet" and not crispy
cook in oven at 190 degrees for 20 mins
turn chicken over then cook for another 20 mins
let cool for 5 mins...eat...enjoy

usual rules apply regarding chicken
wash hands after use
make sure juices run clear at end of cooking time etc :)
for the hotheads among us ..you can always add some chilli flakes/crushed dry chillis to dry mix for the kick we desire :)

Interesting but it has far fewer herbs and spices than many recipes I've seen, which may be a good or bad thing.

How close would you say the flavour was to genuine KFC?

Does anyone know how KFC get their chicken so tender so it's almost falling off the bone? Presumably it's some kind of slow cook pre-cook or a soaking in a tenderising fluid or some kind?
"Don't burn the spices" is the most dangerous truism of all - because it's incomplete. It should be "Don't burn the spices but do cook them!"
You'll never make BIR if you're too cautious frying your spices.....

I read it on line somewhere that It's done in a pressure cooker, (can't remember where) but who knows if this is true or not, but there chicken is certainly tender.
But on there TV advert it show's it cooked from raw ???

Yes its pressure fried, like a pressure cooker crossed with a deep fat fryer, no you shouldn't try and use your normal pressure cooker filled with oil, you will die. horribly. :D
Happy new year everybody btw.

I remembers seeing these gagets years ago when southern fried chicken (by anybody) first appeared in chip shops and was all the rage.  Personally, i hate the stuff and don't go anywhere near it.  Maybe it had something to do with a report in the local paper about something other than chicken being used :o.  But i did used to like their bbq ribs (RIP).
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........
