Fried Chicken: Crispy Fried Chicken Recipe

Fried Chicken Recipe: This recipe is my all time favorite. Usually, I make this on Sundays but whenever it’s my cheat day I would like to have this dish as my cheat meal. This is perhaps the Best Fried Chicken recipe I’ve ever made. From the childhood itself, it always loved crispy fried chicken recipe though I don’t like the bread it in. But I always like chicken that’s crispy and packed with flavors and thin breading.

Fried Chicken Recipe

In this Easy Fried Chicken recipe, I am using chicken thighs that are cut into pieces. If you want a healthier version then I recommend using chicken breasts. Or sometimes you can also try whole chicken to change your tongue taste.

How to Make Fried Chicken Recipe?

If you really want to make this fried chicken recipe crispy and crunchy then make sure to properly coat it, you can use breadcrumbs with a light, flaky texture (also known as panko), corn flakes, corn meal, and your favorite allspice.

To get a nice crisp dredge your chicken thighs in flour which helps the egg to adhere to the chicken. And do the same with other pieces to get that nice crisp.

Ok, now lets dive into the breading process, Firstly I recommend to use a bowl where you will put your egg mixture and another tray where you can put your breadcrumbs.

I have got a simple trick for you, use a fork and insert it to your chicken thighs to hold it, then dip it to the egg mixture, then place to your breadcrumb tray and with now with the help of your hand put the required amount of breadcrumbs and flour to it. Keep doing the same for all the pieces. This can really save you from getting messy hands!
