Party Fried Chicken is the name that I can think of for delicious fried chicken that has a perfect texture. There seems to be a party going-on in my mouth with every bite. I tried to play around to come-up with a crisp and nice coating and I think that Panko bread crumbs mixed with regular bread crumbs and cornstarch is a good combination.
This Party Fried Chicken recipe requires the chicken pieces to be marinated for at least 3 hours. It is important that the chicken absorbs the flavor before frying. For best results, marinating overnight is recommended.
Since we are using breadcrumbs for this recipe, make sure that you control the heat of the oil to medium (around 300 to 320F) before frying the chicken. Increasing the temperature of the oil will quickly brown the coating, but will leave the inside raw. It will be great if you have a cooking thermometer, otherwise control your heat between low to medium.
When it comes to fried chicken dip, I only think of 2: gravy and ketchup. I tried both for this recipe and it both came out great. Here is a link for out KFC style gravy recipe if you want to test it.
