How To Make Fried Chicken

Ingredients :

  • Dredging mixture
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup hot sauce (I use Louisiana Hot Sauce, Tabasco might be hotter)
  • Seasoning blend
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 lbs cut-up chicken
  • Sauce mixture
  • 4 eggs


Heat peanut oil in a large deep pot to 350°F (do not fill more than half full–you don’t want a hot-oil spill-over accident!).

For sauce mixture: 

in a medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs with the water.

Add hot sauce and whisk together well.

Pour this mixture into a large plastic zip-top bag.

For seasoning mixture: 

In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder.

For dredging mixture: 

In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Rinse and pat dry chicken pieces with a paper towel.

Cut breast pieces in half across ribs.

Sprinkle chicken generously on both sides with a seasoning blend.

Drop a few chicken pieces of chicken into a bag of sauce mixture and squish around to coat thoroughly.

One-piece at a time, roll the chicken in a flour mixture and drop into the hot oil.

Don’t crowd chicken pieces–I cook about half the chicken at a time.

Fry chicken until brown and crisp.

Drain on paper toweling.

Dark meat will take about 14 minutes, white meat for about 10 minutes.

Remember smaller pieces cook faster than the larger ones.

You can check for doneness by piercing to the bone in the thickest part with a fork.

If the juices run clear, it is done. Enjoy!
