Which mistakes are commonly done when fried chicken is made at home?
Do not fry the chicken straight after getting them out of the refrigerator
To make the chicken absorb the seasonings or the flavours, it is essential to make the chicken get refrigerated for a quintessential period. But many of the people among us make this common mistake. It is related to the frying of the chicken immediately after taking it out from the refrigerator. This will not only make your chicken taste devastating but also you will fail in your motive to brimming restaurant-style taste in the chicken made at home.
Why don’t you soak?
Professional chefs never cook chicken unless they soak the chicken pieces in the acidic solution. It will help to make the chicken nicely cooked and become flavoursome. Don’t you want to taste the chicken which is juicy, and tender? If not. Then you can happily skip this step. It is essential to soak the chicken in the buttermilk or the saltwater solution.
Is the drumstick only worth frying?
I have observed people frying only drumsticks. And I am very surprised why people do this? Since they can fry the entire bird including the wings, thighs and breasts.
Not only deep fryer can make the chicken cooked at its best
Are you thinking that you cannot make the perfect restaurant-style fried chicken at home if you do not have a deep fryer? You are wrong. Since the large cast-iron skillet has the potential to make the chicken fried at the required heat.
Why are you leaving the barding part?
It is often suggested by the professional chefs of the famous chicken shops that the people should coat the chicken the bread crumbs to make it extremely crispy and crunchy but some people omit this point and afterwards, they complain that despite following all the important points related to frying the chicken, they still cannot the exactly required taste.
Less knowledge about the heat
The heat should neither be in excess nor insignificance. He requires a heat level that can be detected with the help of the thermometer. So be very particular to have the thermometer if you want to bring perfection to the fried chicken.
Use the right kind of oil
Many of us end up using the wrong oil for frying the chicken. It makes the chicken induce the worst taste and flavours. So the selection of the oil also matters. You can check from the internet whether the oil which you want to use is fit for frying the chicken.
Visual detection is not enough
The visual detection of whether the chicken is fried or not is not only sufficient since the temperature of the chicken also matters. So for that, the use of the thermometer can be relied on. You can determine whether the chicken has to be taken out from the utensil or not. The required temperature for the fried chicken is not less and more than 165-degree celsius.
