Fried chicken is always a hit during the holidays and even on any regular day. It is even better to have crispy fried chicken wherein the outside is crispy to the point that there is a bit of crunch in every bite, while the inside is juicy and tasty. This recipe is what it is all about.
I used a special fried chicken batter to make this dish flavorful. The combination of the batter with the final coating of flour made a huge difference and helped produce the crispy texture. I made sure that the chicken remains moist and juicy. This made possible by using enough oil to deep fry the chicken while controlling the temperature. Sometimes using more oil to fry chicken is not ideal for budget purposes. However, it is necessary for some recipes such as this in order to achieve optimal results. I made sure that the heat is set to medium at the most. I try to lower it a bit when the color of the skin darkens quickly to ensure that the center of the chicken gets cooked completely as the skin gets crispy and brown.
