Southern Fried Chicken, KFC Style

CK Good Food
If you want to make the perfect authentic KFC style Southern Fried Chicken, then you need this secret recipe to make the perfect Southern Fried Chicken Coating. In this Southern fried chicken Recipe I recreate the secret ingredients to make the perfect KFC style Southern Fried Chicken.

Secret Ingredients :

80 g of Plain Flour
1 Chicken Stock Cube
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp of Dry Sage
1 tsp Dry Thyme
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Baking Powder

Method :

The aim of this recipe is to create a delicious Southern Fried, Smoky coating that can be used to season Chicken pieces so that they can be deep fried in a KFC style.
In addition to the ingredients listed above you are going to need some chicken pieces. In this recipe I have used Chicken breasts that I have cut in to thick strips.
You can just as well use Chicken drumsticks or Chicken thighs. The idea is that once you have coated the chicken in the mixture you can deep fry it to a crispy Southern Fried finish.
It couldn't be easier to get this recipe together, simply weigh out the Flour into a mixing bowl and add all of the other dry ingredients.
Mix it all together with a fork so that it is evenly combined.
If you are using Chicken Breasts then cut them in to small, fat strips or Chunks if you like.
Heat up 300 - 400 ml of oil in a wok or small pan
Drop your Chicken pieces into a bowl of cold water and let them soak for 5 minutes while the oil heats up.
Don't drain the Chicken Pieces just pick them out of the water and drop them straight into the coating mixture. The wetter the Chicken the better.
Put a lid on the mixture, cover and shake so that all of the Chicken is covered in a thick layer of the mixture.
When your oil is hot enough, you can test this with a small piece of coated chicken which should start to cook as soon as it's dropped in. Cook the chicken in small batches, 5 or 6 at a time.
The Chicken should be cooked when it is floating and the coating is a rich golden brown.
Using a slotted spoon, carefully remove the chicken and drain on some kitchen roll.
