Here in this article, we are going to discuss the topmost mistakes which you make while cooking the fried chicken. If you like this information and want to have the same for the cajun chicken, then please let us know.
Until then, let’s commence with the mistakes before it’s too late, and you start cooking fried chicken:
You fry the chicken when it is extremely cold
If you fry the chicken when it has not gotten adapted to the room temperature, it is quite unfortunate to make you informed you are not going to have the restaurant-style chicken.
You skip soaking
I know sometimes cravings overtake the time and then you may feel like omitting soaking and frying chicken as it is. But my dear! Compromising with the soaking means compromising with the taste.
You consider frying only drumsticks
While there is a whole bird to enjoy, then what is the point of frying only the drumsticks? You can use the whole of the breasts, thighs and wings as the classic appendages.
You omit to bread
Breading is responsible for making your fried chicken crispy, crunchy and crusty and that is what the nicely fried chicken is supposed to be having. If you only bread, there is no point and logic in frying chicken.
You consider only a deep fryer for frying
No doubt most of the reputed and well-acclaimed chicken sellers make use of the big fryers. But it is not always mandatory to use the big deep fryer or frying chicken.
If you do not have it, then why worry when the cast iron skillet is still available?
Did you know?
Iron is best known for retaining heat.
Wrong oil for frying
No every oil that comes across when you open your cabinet is fit for frying the chicken. So it’s better to choose the kind of oil which is fit to retain the frying-oriented heat.
Heat is either too low or too high
In case the oil is either excessively heated or the lower heated, then the chicken will not come out to be nicely cooked.
- In case, the oil is overheated, then the exteriors may turn out to be blackish but the internet will not be thoroughly cooked.
- And when the oil is not heated at the right temperature or is obtaining low heat, then the chicken may come out to be cooked, but you can not expect it to be crispy and crunchy.
You soak excessive oil on the paper towel
Immediately after taking the chicken from the cauldron, you approach to put the fried pieces of the paper towel. This is the wrong way. By doing this, the steam is generated which makes your chicken soggy and soft (evidently, cannot satisfy your tastebuds)
