A sweet-sour honey marinade flavors this juicy fried chicken. Honey and vinegar get together in the marinade for the chicken, and then it’s coated in a buttermilk batter and deep-fried to golden brown perfection.
A drizzling of the hot boiled marinade finishes the fried chicken perfectly. This is a tasty change of pace from the everyday fried chicken, and it is delicious with rice, potatoes, or noodles.
Add some Asian chili garlic paste (sambal) to the marinade for a bit of heat, and feel free to reduce the amount of cayenne pepper in the breading mixture.
When it comes to chicken there just isn’t anything more delicious than a juicy, crusty piece of finger-licking good fried chicken. It might seem intimidating to fry your own chicken, but it’s actually pretty straightforward and it puts grocery store and fast food fried chicken to shame. If you have a thermometer for the oil and a timer, you can produce fail-proof fried chicken. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own fried chicken, now is the time to try!
DO I HAVE TO USE CORNSTARCH? CAN I REPLACE THE FLOUR?
Cornstarch is one of our recommended ingredients for the crispiest fried chicken. Cornstarch is often used in Asian fried chicken recipes. The combination of the flour with cornstarch produces the crispiest result. You can replace all of the flour with cornstarch, or you can try using a similar non-gluten based flour or flour blend in place of traditional all-purpose flour.
