Southern Style Fried Chicken

southern fried chicken

Southern style fried chicken is an old traditional recipe  in the South. It is a simple recipe made with chicken coated with batter and flour. It is sometimes referred to as buttermilk fried chicken. Traditionally, fried chicken is best when deep fried in hot cooking oil. The oil can be peanut oil, corn oil, vegetable oil or even olive oil, depending on your preference.

There are many styles of cooking fried chicken. It can be easy and simple. The main challenge is making the chicken crispy and delicious. The same as that of any fast food such as the famous “chicken joy” of jollibees or the “zinger burger” from KFC. Perhaps the secret is in the ingredients contained in the coating and the method used form deepfrying. When deep frying, make sure the oil is at the right temperature of 350 degrees F. Use a thermometer if necessary. When the oil is too hot, it will burn the outside part if the chicken, and it will become bitter in taste. Deep fry the chicken over medium low heat to ensure the chicken is cooked without burning it. Another tip is to deep fry it in batches, and don’t overload the deep fryer with chicken or it will not cook properly. No matter what the occasion, fried chicken is surely hit for the entire family!
