So, I’ve wanted to post recipes for dishes I’ve really worked out for quite some time now, and I figured what better way to do it than post it on Patreon! I don’t feel particularly bad about locking this off, because while I rate it rather highly, it isn’t something I think a ton of people need to see. Nevertheless, I put a lot work into getting this right, and I hope those of you interested look at it. While not a Southerner, I’m fairly confident in a number of my Southern dishes, and fried chicken probably tops that list.
I know it’s a bit annoying, but I’d like to explain how I developed this recipe before giving it, if only for credit’s sake. I’d like to say that it’s a variation on a family recipe, but while it is inspired but the way my Nana makes fried chicken, I’ve never made it with her. The biggest influence on this, in terms of technique, is J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, though this diverges quite a bit from his. Additionally, my spice mix is heavily inspired by, though not the same as, many popular ideas of KFC’s.
This recipe is a work-in-progress still, and almost certainly won’t be how I fry chicken a year from now. Still, it’s the result of over a dozen different attempts to get it right, and I think I’m pretty close. If anyone does decide to make this, please let me know. I’d be incredibly interested in hearing how it turns out.
You can find the recipe itself on Patreon, starting at $3.
