Recipe Fried Chicken.

Updated on June 30, 2015

Usually we do not fry chicken as a whole but in parts while we roast chicken as a whole. So you would find many places which would sell you whole roasted chicken while fried chicken would always be in parts. To fry chicken we either use lighter colored breasts or darker colored thighs. Usually we have to coat the chicken in some dry substance like flour to fry it. Usually we marinate the chicken in curd of butter milk and spices and salt before we use flour coating on the chicken. When we fry the chicken usually little liquid or chicken juices spreads over the flour and make it crispy and also help in its browning. Usually we use vegetable oil to fry the chicken as olive oil has too strong flavor and thus can mask taste and flavor of chicken.

Usually we use one of the three methods to fry the chicken

  1. Shallow fry: In this procedure we take very little oil in a pan and fry chicken on it. The chicken pieces are marinated, covered in flour and fried in a shallow pan with turning them over time and again.
  2. Deep fried: In this large quantity of oil is used, the chicken is drowned in oil to fry it. In this the chicken is crispier.

3. Breasting: In this pressure cooker is used to cook the chicken. In this very little oil is used.

Fried Chicken


  1. Chicken: 1.
  2. Vegetable oil: 1 cup.
  3. All purpose flour: 3 cups
  4. Freshly grounded black pepper: ½ Tsp.
  5. Salt: 1 tsp.


  1. Cut the chicken in to 8 pieces.
  2. Wash them thoroughly and if cannot be cleaned with water, use lime to clean it.
  3. Rinse and pat dry.
  4. Now in a bowl put the chicken pieces and sprinkle sale and pepper.
  5. Refrigerate it for at least one hour.
  6. Take a plastic bag and put flour in it.
  7. Add refrigerated chicken pieces in it.
  8. Shake the bag well so all sides of chicken are coated by the flour.
  9. Take out the chicken pieces and shake off excess flour.
  10. Now in a deep pan add oil and put it on high heat or flame.
  11. When the oil boils, put chicken pieces in it one by one.
  12. Turn the heat to medium.
  13. Cook till the chicken has turned golden.
  14. Lower heat if chicken gets too dark; chicken should be cooked in 20 to 30 mins.
  15. Now on a plate put the absorbent paper.
  16. Take the chicken out of oil and put on absorbent paper.
  17. When the excess oil is drained from chicken, serve them hot.

      I know that fried chicken is not as healthful as some other preparations but is there anyone who does not occasionally like to indulge in a good piece of crispy fried chicken? I know that we do! Looking at the photo on top of this page is making me think that we are due to have some again sometime soon. Yum! Up and useful votes.
