I saw a copycat recipe for KFC extra crispy chicken the other day and I knew I had to try it. As soon as I started coating the chicken I knew this was going to be a great recipe. The coating does its job magnificently leaving a lot of breading and the best part is that the skin has been removed. My entire family enjoyed this dish and we have decided that this will be our go to fried chicken recipe from now on.
1 whole frying chicken, cut up into 8 pieces
2-3 cups sunflower oil, for frying
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2-1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
3/4 teaspoon msg
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon fresh garlic pureed
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1. Remove all skin from chicken pieces. In a saute pan on medium-high heat add oil. Allow to get hot.
2. In a large mixing bowl add flour, salt, pepper, msg, paprika, garlic and baking powder. Mix well. In a small bowl add beaten egg and milk, mix.
3. One piece at a time coat chicken in milk mixture, flour mixture, milk mixture and flour mixture once again. Lay on a large plate until all chicken has been breaded.
4. When oil is hot carefully place chicken into pan. Fry chicken on each side about 15 minutes or until golden. Place on a paper to towel to drain oil. Serve.
