Extra Crispy Southern Fried Chicken – (Low Carb Recipe)Randall Smitham July 26, 2019 73 Comments
hey everybody welcome to the wolfe pit. Today I’m making extra crisspy southern fried chicken.
But it’s not your average fried
chicken, it’s no carb fried chicken. That’s
right all the goodness of extra crispy fried
without the breading, without the carbs and the extra calories. So let’s get started.
I’m going to start by making a
simple brine with salt, granulated garlic
and granulated onion. Followed by two cups of hot water.
This will help dissolve everything.
Give it a good mix!
Now I’m going to add two cups
of cold water followed by 4 cups of ice cubes.
You want to end up with a half gallon of liquid.
And now I’m going to add the chicken
and what I did here was cut the chicken breast
in half since they were so big. This way
everyone can have a piece of the breast.
And then add the remaining pieces
Give it a good mix and make sure
all of the chicken is covered. If you don’t
have enough liquid just add a little bit more
and this goes into the refrigerator for about
Now I’m going to make a spicy
seasoning for the chicken once it comes out
of the hot oil, with black pepper, cayenne
and chili powder. And give it a good mix.
I’ve removed the chicken from
the brine and I have it draining on paper
towels and now I’m going to pat it as dry
with paper towels. It’s very important the
chicken is as dry as possible before it goes
into the hot grease.
Now I’m going to slowly place
the chicken in 400º peanut oil. I have it
at 400º because the temperature is going
so it’s actually going to be frying at 375º.
The chicken is going to take about
15 minutes to fully cook through and since
I don’t have oil in the pan to fully submerge
the chicken I’m going to flip it every five
minutes or so.
After 3 flips and 17 minutes our chicken thighs are done, look at how golden
brown they are.
And now you want to liberally
season both sides of the chicken while it’s
still piping hot and moist on the outside.
Can you believe the color of this
chicken without any breading, absolutely gorgeous
and it smells incredible.
Now just continue the same cooking
and seasoning process until all of the chicken
Who would have ever thought you
could have carb free extra crispy fried chicken
that actually tasted like fried chicken?
