KFC Hot And Spicy Chicken

KFC Hot and Spicy
1 whole frying chicken, cut up and marinated using KFC Marinate
6-8 cups shortening
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon white pepper
3/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
3/4 teaspoon MSG
1/8 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/8 teaspoon Baking Powder

Trim any excess skin and fat from the chicken pieces. Preheat the shortening in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees. Combine the beaten egg and milk in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, combine the remaining coating ingredients When the chicken has marinated, transfer each piece to paper towels so that excess liquid can drain off. Working with one piece at a time, dip in egg and milk then coat the chicken with the dry flour mixture, coated very generously. Stack the chicken on a plate or cookie sheet until each piece has been coated. Drop the chicken, one piece at a time into the hot shortening. Fry half of the chicken at a time (4 pieces) for 12-15 minutes, or until it is golden brown. You should be sure to stir the chicken around halfway through the cooking time so that each piece cooks evenly. Remove the chicken to a rack or towels to drain for about 5 minutes before eating.

  8. there is no egg powder or milk powder or onoion powder in your recipes , all your chicken has the same ingredients and tastes nothing like kentucky fried chicken , more like kfc without the smell. go back to the kitchen and try again. you should be ashamed for saying this crap is kentucky fried chicken

  9. Not tasty at all. I had to add some other ingredients to make it better.
