This month for our Fantastic Bake Along we cooked up some delicious fried chicken! Thanks Tracy @It’s a T-Sweets Day for a truly Fantastic Recipe.
I followed Tracy’s very easy recipe – Double Dipped Fried Chicken.
I make fried chicken tenders at least once or twice a month in my house. I usually use the 3 Dredge method.
- Seasoned flour
- Egg & water
- Seasoned Panko bread crumbs
But for today’s Bake Along I swapped the water for milk and the Panko for another coating of the seasoned flour.
The results were delicious!
Here’s my SUPER SECRET tip for the BEST results with fried chicken – Brine that bird!
Yup – I put my frozen chicken into what’s called a quick brine – I fill a big bowl full of warm water (enough to cover all the chicken pieces) and dissolve 1/2 cup of salt in it. That’s it. No other seasoning or anything. I let the chicken thaw in that brine for several hours. Then I dry the chicken pieces off with some paper towel and fry as usual.
The chicken comes out so tasty, moist, and tender. Try it – I bet you will never again fry chicken without giving it a brine first! This is especially important when using boneless skinless chicken breasts or pork chops – since these both tend to be dry. Brine them for several hours first and you will be deliciously delighted!
Here you can see my other SECRET weapon for fantastic fried chicken in use – my cast iron skillet! I use vegetable oil but have also used Butter Flavor Crisco to fry my chicken.
