Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: about 3 servings per 2 lbs of chicken

Kitchenware Required

  • a turkey fryer
  • paper towels
  • cotton butcher's twine
  • an instant-read meat thermometer
  • a wire rack
  • a spoon


  • 1 whole roasting chicken
  • 1 recipe maple-mustard glaze, (see "quick tips" below Nutrition Facts)
  • up to 3 gallons peanut oil, (depending on the size of your chicken)


  1. Determine how much peanut oil you will need using the instructions provided through the link in the "quick tips" section below.
  2. Preheat the oil to 350 degrees F.
  3. Remove the neck and giblets from your chicken. Rinse the inside, and use paper towels to pat it dry. Use cotton butcher's twine to tie the legs to the tail. Twist the wing tips under the back of the chicken.
  4. Place the chicken into the fryer basket (breast side up), and slowly lower it into the preheated oil. Keep the oil temperature near 350 degrees F., and cook the chicken 7 minutes for each pound. (A 4 pound chicken would need to fry for 28 minutes)
  5. Carefully remove the chicken, and see if it is done. Use an instant-read meat thermometer to check the internal temperature by inserting it into the meaty part of a thigh. When done, the thermometer should read 180 degrees F.
  6. Drain the chicken on a wire rack.
  7. Spoon the maple-mustard glaze over the hot chicken.
  8. Let stand for 15 minutes before carving.

      I love this recipe! I purchased my turkey fryer just before Thanksgiving one year in an attempt to cook the turkey quicker, and shave some time off of my holiday meal preparation. The deep fried turkey came out so delicious, and now I use the turkey fryer whenever the weather is nice to cook dinner outside. While a whole turkey is great for feeding the extended family on holidays, it is just too big for my family of 4 for a typical dinner. A chicken on the other hand is just the right size. Sometimes we have left-overs, but never waste! The turkey fryer cooks the chicken quickly to perfection, and the Maple Mustard Glaze makes it even tastier. I love finding new recipes to tryout in my turkey fryer. It gives me a chance to get out of the kitchen and get some fresh air on a nice evening, and makes dinner preparation a breeze!
