This is my recipe modified from the leaked KFC recipe.
Deep Fat Fryer
Bowl for soaking chicken
Oven set to warming
8Chicken legs or thighs
Season, brine or marinate the chicken like you normally would, then pop it into a 350°F oven until the chicken is just cooked through, 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken pieces. Finally, let the chicken cool down before frying- this precooking step can even be done a day or two in advance and the chicken stored in the refrigerator.
First Wash Mix
Second Wash Mix
The Night Before
The night before, place the chicken pieces in a bowl and cover with buttermilk. Cover and refrigerate.
The Day Of
Heat a deep-fat fryer oil to 375°.
Set oven to warming mode, about 200 degrees.
In a shallow dish, beat eggs and 1-1/2 cups water; add 1 teaspoon salt and 1-1/3 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
In another large shallow dish, combine the above spices and 2 cups of flour. Mix throughly.
Dip chicken in egg mixture, then place in the flour mixture, a few pieces at a time. Turn to coat.
Working in batches, fry chicken, several pieces at a time, until golden brown and a thermometer inserted into chicken reads 165°, about 7-8 minutes on each side.
Place on cooling rack to let drain. Place in oven to keep warm.
