The 13th Top Secret Ingredient!
Adding some MSG (monosodium glutamate) helps with that extra crunch! (I didn’t add any since I didn’t have) But according to Ron Douglas, author of America’s Most Wanted Recipes, the real key to the perfect crispy texture is MSG. You can add it to your seasoning mix before breading. IT IS A MUST! And don’t worry, MSG isn’t harmful to you in any way. See what this Mayo Clinic article has to say about MSG! (Mine turned out perfect without it)
4 Simple Steps to Frying The Best Fried Chicken:
Wash your chicken pieces in lime & salt and pat dry. Rub with green seasoning and let marinate for 20 minutes. (I used quality, affordable whole chicken wings from Westco Foods)
Dip seasoned chicken pieces into egg and milk wash. Make sure they are completely immersed in order for the breaded coating to stick.
Place in secret spice breaded mixture. Toss around a few times until completely covered. Make sure you are unable to see any part of the raw skin.
Transfer immediately to the deep fat fryer. (Heat oil to 350 F) Deep fry the chicken pieces for exactly 12 minutes, a few at a time, depending on the size of your deep fat fryer. (I fit three big chicken wing pieces comfortably at once) To ensure that they are cooked through, rest them in the oven at 175 F for a few minutes, this would also keep them hot and crunchy. (KFC actually does this before serving, according to a former employee)
Pair with that creamy mashed potato and a buttery biscuit. Man, what could be better??! From the comfort and safety of your home.
