“No Worries Fried Chicken”

Spread the love

Fried chicken. Everybody loves it, but not everybody is confident enough to make it at home. That’s where sous vide comes in. With sous vide, you don’t have to worry if the chicken is under done…ever! It’s cooked to perfection every time! If you’ve got a party, you could even cook the chicken ahead, and just fry it for the party! Less stress is always best, so go get some bird and a beer and fry up a fried chicken feast!

Take your pastry flour and add your spices. The traditional ones are usually some variation including paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper, but you can add almost anything. I like to add a little ground mustard and some herbs to mine.
