KFC Fried Chicken Recipe with Step by Step pictures - Making KFC Fried Chicken at home has been the top in my bucket list last year. After six attempts, I have fine tuned a recipe which gives a taste similar to what I gobble guiltlessly in KFC :D And this KFC Fried chicken was my contribution for a potluck at office and it was an instant hit. Happy to share the recipe with my readers :) There is an unusual ingredient in the crunchy covering of the chicken, no doubt it makes you feel So Goood, Fingerlicking .. :) Before you close this page, do check out my  KFC Popcorn Chicken recipe too.

Part I - Marinate Chicken & Pre-cook

Marinate your chicken with all the marinade ingredients for atleast 8 hours in the refridgerator.

After 8 hours, thaw the chicken. Once they come to room temperature, pressure cook them without water in a slow flame for 7-8 minutes. This pre-cooking avoids any rawness of meat at the end of frying. Lots of water will ooze out of the chicken. Reserve it to add to part II - Batter.

 Part - II - Batter Dipping

Mix all the ingredients here, beat in the egg, add milk slowly and slowly whisk it until you get a smooth batter.

Add the reserved chicken juice from Part I to the batter and mix well. Now, this batter will serve as first coating for the chicken.

 Part-III- Crunchy Coat

Take lays, cornflakes and oats in a blender.

Blend it to perform a coarse mix. Please make sure it is a coarse mixture. Add the remaining ingredients i.e garlic powder, chilly powder, salt a pinch and mix well. This mixture gives a totally yummy crunchy coating.

Part-IV- Frying

Dip the pre-cooked chicken in the batter from part-II

Heat a thick bottomed pan with enough oil to fry and deep fry them. They get ready in 5 minutes. Remove them from oil and drain on a tissue.
