Extra Crispy Southern Fried Chicken – (Low Carb Recipe)

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
of chicken.
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
four hours.
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
as possible
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
to drop,
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
is cooked.
Who would have ever thought you
could have carb free extra crispy fried chicken
that actually tasted like fried chicken?
If you like this video please
give me a thumbs up.
Thank you all very much for watching
I hope you give this a try and I’ll see you
next time!

  2. jeffxl12 Posted on February 5, 2015 at 4:18 pm

    I like this one. No carbs is a good one for me

  3. Linda's Pantry Posted on February 5, 2015 at 4:31 pm

    Omg this is amazing!

  4. Robert Peters Posted on February 5, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    Yum, yes please!   I will take a bakers dozen please Larry, also great video today sir! 

  5. Michael's Home Cooking Posted on February 5, 2015 at 4:36 pm

    Very nice, I will try this.  Thank you Larry!

  6. Cook'n on the brink Posted on February 5, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    Nice looking chicken Larry!

  7. Marc Perroquet Posted on February 5, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    Brilliant idea! 

  8. White Thunder BBQ Posted on February 5, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    Great job Larry!

  9. reignstorm4 Posted on February 5, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    Amazing!! Reminds me of my mom's pan fried chicken..😃

  10. Zeb Wiffle Cooks Keto Posted on February 5, 2015 at 5:29 pm

    Yeah, Larry!  You rocked that video, man!  The chicken looked phenomenal.  I'll share this one with my LC group.  Excellent job.  


  11. JayGrey Posted on February 5, 2015 at 5:31 pm

    Frying it in peanut oil reminds me of how they do at the Chinese restaurant, makes it taste great

  12. ShalimarPerfume Posted on February 5, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    Kind of the same thing as cooking buffalo wings. They go in deep fryer naked and then get tossed in hot sauce. Is brining necessary? I am diabetic but also need to watch salt. 

  13. GQue BBQ Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    I thought man that looks Crispy before you even said extra cripsy! Nice job Larry!

  14. Dinah Cox-Moore Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:08 pm

    AMAZING!!!!  Definitely on my rotation!  Thanks dude!!!

  15. Dinah Cox-Moore Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    Also, I'm glad to see someone else into brining their chicken too.  I just discovered it in the last year or so, and I can't hardly cook chicken any other way.  Rock On!

  16. Thaneii Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    So very tempting.  You get my thumbs up even though I'll have to make these baked, not fried.  Thanks, Larry.

  17. CraftsAndMore315 Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:25 pm

    Awesome. Thanks.

  18. Marjorie Roberts Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:30 pm

    There's no video only audio hum…

  19. Ronnette Mckinnis Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:33 pm

    Great chicken recipe.

  20. Cornelius Sneed Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:37 pm

    Hey Larry, you really dolled it up. My way was basically "Chuck some chicken in hot oil, cook until done, take out, put some seasoning salt and garlic powder on it. 🙂

  21. TosTinMan EasyCooking Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:42 pm

    Nice! I don't need a piece of the breast. Legs and wings for me!

  22. Kulinary Kreations Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:44 pm

    Chicken looks great! I love fried chicken and this is also good for us gluten free peeps! Great video Wolfe! TFS! 🙂

  23. Juanelo1946 Posted on February 5, 2015 at 7:05 pm

    Larry, I send you my praises!!! (I would sing them but I have a terrible voice). Two weeks ago I tried making low-carb southern-fried chicken using half coconut flour and half almond flour as a breading. It tasted fine, but the flours caused it to appear burnt. Yours, by contrast, is exactly what I'm looking for, and totally without breading! It's perfection! Of course I'll be doing it your way from now on! I can't thank you enough my friend!  — John

  24. Lumpy Q Posted on February 5, 2015 at 8:15 pm

    Great color for not doing anything, this is a must try.

  25. T-ROY COOKS Posted on February 5, 2015 at 8:57 pm

    I bet this would work for pork chops too!! Looked wonderful Larry, super tender and juicy just like ole T-Roy likes his chicken. And yes, I'm a thigh man!! LOL

  26. jim nelson Posted on February 5, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    could eat that all day

  27. Mike in the Kitchen Posted on February 6, 2015 at 12:19 am

    Looks delicious and easy too.  Thanks.

  28. Joe Bucci Posted on February 6, 2015 at 4:51 am

    Wolfe Pit, Wow… what a child hood flash back…. thank you.
    My Grandmother on my moms side called this Alabama fried chicken, the spices were probably different, but the cooking was the same..
    During the Great Depression, when she was still in Alabama, she told me that they had chickens, but had no extra flour to bread it in.
    All flour was used for biscuits or dumplings.
    You just made a 54 yo. man feel like a 9 yo. kid again.  🙂

  29. lilmama Posted on February 6, 2015 at 4:52 am

    Wolf pit love your vids, you make some awesome recipes!!! 😄 can you please tell me the difference between granulated onion/garlic vs powder onion/garlic?

  30. Anonymoose Posted on February 6, 2015 at 8:49 am

    It looks fantastic, Larry! Tell ya what, I'll trade you a plate of ribs for a plate of chicken.  🙂

  31. Daddy Cooks Posted on February 6, 2015 at 9:30 am

    Larry, that came out looking fantastic. I don't have any carb issues but I would do this out of it's sheer simplicity! The only thing needed now is hot sauce and fingers…lol! Great job!!

  32. PrankCalls OG Posted on February 6, 2015 at 9:44 am

    Nothing about the way you cooked this is healthy. Whoever told you that this was carb-free lied to you. It's fried in oil, and seasoned with salt. Carbs are not a bad thing. They are useful for exercise and provide energy. Stop trying to make your food look healthy. It doesn't work.

  33. ebonygentleman79 Posted on February 6, 2015 at 9:53 am

    This is definitely going in the recipe box. Thanks, Larry!

  34. Dan Webster Posted on February 6, 2015 at 4:50 pm

    That is awesome. My chicken is not much different. I brine mine. Then I put 2 cups bread flour and 1/4th cup Lowerys in the flour. I drain the chicken and season with Lowery and coat with flour mix, then cook 4 pieces at a time all the dark meat first in cast iron 15 to 18 (depending on size of chicken) minutes first batch starting point 250f with burner wide open. I leave the burner wide open till the last piece of chicken is cooked. With the boneless white meat cooked last at 11 minutes. Thanks fer posting.

  35. 29render Posted on February 7, 2015 at 2:21 pm

    We sell a carb free product called "Skinny Dip" which is a breading made from crushed pork rinds and a seasoning blend…great idea, Larry!

  36. Moo Cow Posted on February 7, 2015 at 5:31 pm

    I think the rule about not going grocery shopping while hungry applies to your channel! Thanks Larry, awesome again.

  37. joed596 Posted on February 8, 2015 at 2:19 pm

    This is a super idea, Larry!  . . .   'Southern Fried Chicken' is a really classic dish, and if it can be made in a healthier version which still tastes great, then you've knocked the ball out of the park once again, my friend!    🙂  🙂  🙂   Thumbs up,  Joe

  38. Cris Workizer Posted on February 9, 2015 at 12:24 am

    Thats some nice lookin chicken .

  39. CheapskateGardener Posted on February 9, 2015 at 11:47 pm

  40. The Bald Chef Posted on February 10, 2015 at 12:57 pm

    Nice looking Southern Fried Chicken Recipe! Low Carbs is what I need!

  41. bruce lee Posted on February 11, 2015 at 9:25 pm

    i like the recipe……
    just how does the ice cubes post to help???

  42. Hot Rod Posted on February 15, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    Looks delicious….and since I just found out that I am pre-diabetic, I will certainly give it a try.

  43. dakotabob10 Posted on February 17, 2015 at 3:11 pm

    I am a Type 2 diabetic. I control my blood sugar levels through diet. If you have more diabetic friendly recipes Larry, I would sure love to see them.

  44. Howard Johnson Posted on February 18, 2015 at 7:12 pm

    Love the fact you did it in your wok so you didn't need nearly as much oil.

    Nice work, not that that's unusual


  45. food jazz Posted on February 19, 2015 at 9:51 pm

    Great no carb recipe, Larry!!

  46. Chevy Brown Posted on April 23, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    Looks yum and crispy!

  47. metra cee Posted on May 28, 2015 at 5:32 am

    It works.great job

  48. Pi Kassahun Posted on August 17, 2015 at 7:13 am

    Larry, can you make a tuna noodle casserole?

  49. TheWolfePit Posted on August 17, 2015 at 8:07 am

    @Pi Kassahun Hi Pi!  I've never made and I don't think I've ever had a tuna noodle casserole.  But, it sounds great.  Let me see what I can come up with!  Thank you for the suggestion Pi!

  50. Luiza Maiden Posted on August 19, 2015 at 9:21 am

    That was the better deep fried recipe I've ever eaten (with exception to KFC, but hey, they got breadcrumbs!), it worked so well and very handy to have in the fridge ready for when one needs a quick low-carb snack, highly recommended!

  51. Renee Washington Posted on August 31, 2015 at 2:16 am

    Published on my birthday, woo hoo! You had me at fried… I cant wait to try it! SUBSCRIBED!!!

  52. Jack Der Hagopian Posted on February 24, 2016 at 6:50 pm

    quick questions.  How important is the type of oil? (I have corn oil).  This is probably a dumb question but will this also work in a deep fryer instead of stove top?

  53. Crystal Roets Posted on April 28, 2016 at 8:19 am

    Wow this is an amazing recipe!!!!

  54. aida bach Posted on April 29, 2016 at 7:41 am

    I only pan fried chicken four times in my life, 3 times on the chicken thighs and once on the drumsticks. I'm amused that even with immersing method, each peace still takes up 15 minutes to cook? I kept thinking that I didn't use a drop of oil (try to get the fat out from the chicken skin to cook themselves… they call it the 'oilless' cooking method), that is why I had to cook up 20 minutes to get them down. I also didn't leave the meat at the room temperatures before I threw them into the pan, and I have to keep cooking at least 7 minutes after smell the cooked smell coming out. Often the times, the center near the bones are still 'bleeding'. I now use a thermometer to stick into the thick meat part, if the juice comes out translucent, that means it is cooked, otherwise, it comes out red…. I'm not sure if I will use a 1 quart sauce pan to do the 'immersing' frying as you do, though I'm very tempted…. I just want to save the amount of oil I need to use to fry the chicken….

  55. 3 Dee Posted on May 27, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    I am trying this tonight…let you know how it was later. I have lost so much weight on restricting carbs. I only get my carbs through vegetables, I'm thrilled at the prospect of finding something no carb. I have been doing this now for 4 months lost 42bls and no longer take diabetic meds my A1C is back in thrilled. thanks for the great idea. See how it is tonight.

  56. Erica Sun Posted on May 28, 2016 at 5:41 pm

    I am going to try it soon. Thanks for sharing!!!

  57. Leah Williams Posted on May 28, 2016 at 9:08 pm

    i tried it and it was amazing thanks

  58. Rhyan McDowell Posted on June 15, 2016 at 8:49 am

    I used this to do chicken nuggets instead of whole pieces of chicken and it was truly amazing thank you so much!!!!

  59. Wanda Minnieweather Posted on September 11, 2016 at 12:55 pm

  60. Luis Diaz Posted on January 8, 2017 at 12:25 am

  63. DAV URGE Posted on August 29, 2017 at 1:05 am

  69. Dwight Turner Posted on July 7, 2018 at 4:32 am

    I swear that in all TheWolfePit videos I hear someone playing ping pong in the background.

  70. Amazingsloth Posted on September 26, 2018 at 1:28 am

    how is it NO CARB if you are cooking with OIL?? (and you don't even say what oil you're using..)

  71. Retro Boob Posted on December 10, 2018 at 4:52 pm

    is better to fry them in lard

  72. Paul Maguire Posted on June 13, 2019 at 9:40 pm

    No breading! Very good! Keto dieters can use this recipe!
