Don’t Be Like Paula Patton: 2 Friday Fried Chicken Recipes

Have you seen the viral video of actress Paula Patton “frying” chicken? There are no words, but here are two Fried Chicken Recipes that will have you smiling and swinging your feet. One thing for sure: you will not season the oil with these recipes.

If you hadn’t seen the cooking demonstration here it is.

 

Here are two recipes you can use to get your Fried Chicken Friday done right.

 

CAST IRON FRIED CHICKEN

Cast Iron Fried Chicken (Shallow Pan) 

Ingredients: 

(3-4) pounds of chicken – Use your preferred chicken parts 

Seasonings:

Black pepper

Cayenne pepper

Garlic Powder

Onion Powder

Badia Complete Seasoning

3 packs of Sazon Seasoning 

Texas Pete Hotsauce

Yellow Mustard 

2 cups of Flour

1 cup of Cornstarch

1-2 quarts of Peanut Oil 

Cast Iron or Large Skillet 

Steps: 

Step 1

Clean and wash your chicken pieces and pat dry 

In a large bowl add your chicken, yellow mustard to coat the chicken, and  1 tablespoon of each: Black pepper, Cayenne pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and Badia Complete Seasoning, 1 pack of Sazon Seasoning and a couple of dashes of Texas Pete. Mix until fully coated.

Step 2

Combine flour, cornstarch, and 2 tablespoons of each: Black pepper, Cayenne pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Badia Complete Seasoning, 1 pack of Sazon Seasoning and 2 packs of Sazon Seasoning in a paper bag or Ziplock bag (paper bag preferred). Add your chicken in batches, dredge and shake off any excess, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Let rest for 10 minutes until the flour coat is set. Make sure there are no wet parts showing (this is key to not having it pop as much). 

Step 3

Heat peanut oil in cast iron skillet or any large skillet to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Add the chicken individually to the pan. Let brown, and then flip. Cook to recommended internal temperature of 165 degrees, or 10-20 mins based on the chicken part. 

Tip: Do not turn too many times, don’t worry if it browns more on one part because this is a part of the flavor of the skillet-fried. To avoid pops cover with a mesh topper. DO NOT USE A PAN LID: This will create steam and cause oil to pop and possibly catch fire. 

Step 4

Remove chicken from the oil, and put it on a paper towel/brown bag lined baking sheet or cooling rack. You can sprinkle a little seasoning on the chicken or hot honey sauce(if preferred).
