Fried Chicken #2

Updated: Jul 6, 2021

When I first made this chicken, it was just me throwing together something quick for my sister to eat. I posted the pic on my Whatsapp and got quite a few recipe requests. So here I am, bearing crisp and well seasoned information. When it comes to fried chicken, I like a crispy outside, yet soft and juicy bites on the inside and I want to taste that flavor all the way to the bone. If you agree, then try this recipe.


8 pcs Chicken (skin on)

1 1/2 tsp Salt

3 tbsp Green Seasoning

( https://www.terisfoodtherapy.com/post/green-seasoning )

1 1/2 cups Flour

1/2 tsp Mustard Powder

3 tsp Paprika

2 tsp Onion Powder

1/4 Black Pepper

2 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Thyme

3 tsp Jerk Powder (Optional)

3 tsp Cayenne Powder

1/4 tsp Black Pepper

2 large Eggs

1/4 cup Water

1/2 tsp Salt

3-4 Cups Oil for frying


●Wash chicken using vinegar or lime/lemon water. Place in a dry bowl and season with salt, black pepper and green seasoning.

(You can marinate over night but if you are in a hurry you can use a small knife to poke a few holes in your chicken and marinate for 30 mins)

●In a large mixing bowl add flour, mustard, paprika,onion powder, thyme, 1/2 tsp salt and other spices.

●In a medium sized bowl whisk eggs and water until frothy and set aside.

●In a medium to large frying pan add oil for frying and heat on high heat until oil is at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) (you can test oil readiness by using the end of a wooden spoon and dipping it the oil, if bubbles begin to form and it quickly begins sizzling then the oil is ready)

Note (if the oil is smoking it is too hot. Switch off the heat for a few mins until it stops smoking then you can reignite stove and continue)

●When oil becomes hot take pieces of chicken and one by one first dip them in egg and coat and then roll in seasoned flour until coated as well, dip into egg again and then back into the flour. Be sure to shake off excess flour before placing in oil and fry

●Turn every 3-4 mins to ensure pieces are cooked evenly and to perfection.

Note: Wings cook for 10 min

Drumsticks cook for 10-12 mins

Thighs cook for 15-17 mins

Breasts cook for 17-20 mins

A clear indication of readiness is to pierce meat with a small knife to the bone, if the juices seeping out are clear it is done.

●Once pieces are golden and cooked remove from oil, place on paper towels or parchment to drain and enjoy hot.
