KFC Style Fried chicken that is a KFC copy cat chicken recipe that is brined and then fried. The chicken comes out tender, juicy and moist.
Marinate the chicken with buttermilk and salt preferable overnight for best results or at least 6 hours.
Drain the buttermilk out of chicken and place in another bowl.
Add the egg white and all the spices under spice mix.
Mix well and keep aside for 30 mins.
Till then in a wide bowl add the flour and mix all the spices under flour coating mix. Mix well and keep aside.
Heat the oil to 180C. If you don't have a thermometer then we need medium high heat for frying.
To fry chicken just take the spice marinated chicken and flour it generously. Once coated pat dry the extra flour and place in the the pan for frying.
Cook for 2 mins each side(my pieces were medium size, adjust according to your chicken cut size).
Drain on kitchen napkin and wait for 5 mins before serving.
I like to sprinkle some chaat masala on top for extra tangy flavor.
Enjoy your KFC style fried chicken.
To make buttermilk mix 1 cup curd or yougurt and mix 1 cup water. Mix well with a whisk to make it smooth. This makes 2 cup of buttermilk.
