It's Dr.King's birthday today....Well actually, it was yesterday, but since we are celebrating....Uh huh, yeah, you get it.
It's a known fact that Dr. King loved Fried Chicken, as does any good Baptist...including yours truly...So in honor of Dr. King...Here is a fried chicken recipe, I know he would have loved.
- 2-1/2 to 3 pounds fryer chicken, cut into 8-10 pieces
- 2 cups butter milk
- 6 egg yolks
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 sugar less cornflakes (plain)
- 2 tablespoons of seasoning salt
- 2 tablespoons garlic
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon poultry season
- Cooking oil for Deep Fryer
Cookware and Utensils:
# 1 Deep Fryer
# 2 large bowlsv
# 1 small bowl
# 1 ton
Remember, As always the key to great cooking is good preparation and good quality ingredients.
1. Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Pour buttermilk into a large bowl. Place chicken into bowl and soak in your refrigerator for about 4 hours.
2. Now it's time to form your mixture. In another large bowl, crush cornflakes well. After crushing cornflakes add flour, seasoning salt, garlic, onion powder, cayenne pepper and poultry seasoning.
3. After about 4 hours remove chicken from the refrigerator.
4. Place egg yolks into a small bowl and beat until smooth.
5. Find yourself a paper or plastic bag that will be used to shake the chicken. Now place enough mixture to coat a piece of chicken into the bag.
6. Dip a single piece of chicken into the egg yolks and then shake the chicken in the mixture. Do this twice for each piece of chicken. Allow your chicken to sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before frying.
7. Follow the instructions on your deep fryer for preparing and heating your oil. When the oil is ready place your chicken into fryer and cook until done. The chicken should be golden brow, using tongs turn the chicken if necessary. Don't overcrowd the fryer.
Just thinking about this....I know Dr. King would have approved! By all means, enjoy!
