Crispy Fried Chicken

Crispy fried chicken is a standard dish in the Cantonese cuisine of southern China and Hong Kong.

The chicken is fried in such a way that the skin is extremely crunchy, but the white meat is relatively soft. It is perfect for dinner or picnic or parties!

In this article, I am going to guide you through how to make a crispy chicken for the family.

 

Q and A ON HOW TO MAKE A PERFECT CRISPY FRIED CHICKEN RECIPE

What to Do with Used Fry Oil?

Using an empty oil bottle (or a large, clean glass jar), attach a funnel, and then fit a small strainer inside the funnel. Pour the oil through the strainer back into the bottle. Once strained, the oil can be saved at cool room temperature or in the refrigerator for one more use.

How do you make Crispy Fried Chicken?

I recommend using a real cast iron skillet or Dutch oven for any frying recipe. The heat conducts better, keeping a steadier oil temperature.

How long can Fried Chicken be kept?

Fried chicken can be kept in the refrigerator for 3-4 days in an airtight container, but it may not be as crispy when reheated. You can also freeze this, then reheat in the oven or microwave at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes, or until warmed through.
