Fried Chicken Recipe

It is the easiest way to cook chicken: get meat pieces, rub them with salt and spices, and then fry. Nothing complex and yet still very tasty.

Whole chicken legs are the best for this recipe, you can even get into more extreme and fry whole halves of chicken or cornish hen (bigger pieces are more juicy, but you may need to increase cooking time for big portions of meat).

Drumsticks, thighs and even wings can be cooked the same way: but you may need to reduce cooking time and increase amount of spices – just keep proportion of spice the same: 1 part of cumin to 1 part of ground black pepper to 2 parts of ground coriander – and it will be fine.

hi there, I believe this is my second mail, the first one was asking you for a recipe to make fried rice 🙂 So I have a question for you about this Fried Chicken recipe. for step #7, you say to add water. But it seems I don’t have the need for it because the chicken itself gave out water after covering it with te lid, it didn’t look like it needed extra water. or did you mean add extra water to it?
