The Best Fried Chicken Recipe Using Frosted Flakes
If you want to try a great fried chicken recipe, try using Frosted Flakes in your coating.
I have been experimenting with fried chicken for many years. I don't make it that often because it's time consuming and I don't eat much fried food anymore.
1 large bag Frosted Flakes
4 cups flour
2 cups buttermilk
5 pounds of chicken (small to medium sized pieces)
1 gallon canola oil
Crush the Frosted Flakes (food processor or with a roller).
In one bowl, put two cups of flour and the Frosted Flakes
In another bowl put the other two cups of flour
In a third bowl, put the eggs and buttermilk (mix together)
Dip the chicken in the plain flour and then the egg wash and then in the frosted flakes.
Be sure the entire piece of chicken is covered. Don't shake off the excess coating.
While you are prepping the chicken, heat your grease in a cast iron skillet
Put the chicken in the grease and cook for at least 10 minutes on each side. You can cut into a piece to make sure it's done.
Let the chicken rest 30 minutes on a wire rack over a baking sheet. Do not put it on paper towels.
