I was browsing Curtis Stone recipes and saw this fried chix , and I was drooling over it. How can I be always cooking my hubby & kids fav, so I decided to fried the Chix when I am serving the Fish & Chips.
I am always dying for fried chix, my crazy crave each time. Simply love to eat the crispy skin, tender meat so I am always trying different recipes. This recipe seems easy to follow, easy to prepare. I am also interested to know how it will taste after soaking in buttermilk then coating it to fried.
Verdict: The chix meat is especially soft and tender after soaking in the buttermilk, I presume. Outer skin, it is crispy after deep fried but will soften a bit after cooling down, but won't turn soggy. Not bad in my views.
