Skin on or off?

Postby Kiwiruss » Fri Apr 28, 2017 5:36 pm

I watched a programme yesterday about butter milk breaded chicken then deep fried, but I never took notice if the meat was skin on or not? How do you guys do this? I've never used butter milk in my life but I know you guys do it. Any tips as I'm going to try it sometime soon.

No trick, Pard, just swap cultured for sweet and continue as norm - - - - I remember reading somewhere that it's illegal to remove the skin from a Clucker in Texas :laughing7: :D :lol:

In MS. We soak in buttermilk and double flour ours
That means after the first floor drege and let the piece sit for a little while. It makes the first coat of flour sticky. Dredge again an shallow grease fry. Look up chicken brown on the dot com. How does every one else fry their chicken? Also we use a lid.

My PeePaw and MeeMaw had the perfect marriage. Never heard them say a cross word to the other. After his first heart attack she (following doctors orders) removed the skin from his chicken…I had never seen him that mad. I think he threatened divorce :)

De skinning a bird in my house will get you dishes, laundry,garbage,car repair,and yardwork duty EVERY time !!
...oh wait...sounds like I do most of them and I LOVE the skin !! The wife however always takes hers off and dangles it it front of me asking ( want the skin ) ?????

She already knows the answer lol.
I quit using hot oil for crisping bird skin a long time ago, I get Perfect Crispy Bite Thru skin from the oil-less turkey fryer ( The big Easy ) every time. The only way you can tell no oil was used is when u look down on ur plate, and ur wrists and notice both are dry !
Have fried thighs tonight actually :):):)

I fry sheeken like all those great Women in my Life growing up did - - - double dredge (like Justin) except I dredge in milk/buttermilk, then into flour that has been SnP'd, THEN I repeat that process and fry in hot oil. Drain on paper towels, eat and remember to wipe your chin occasionally. :laughing7:

Never use milk when you can use buttermilk. :tup:

You can cheat, and make your own buttermilk. 1 cup of milk + 1 tablespoon vinegar, stir, let set 5 minutes. :cheers:

I was surprised the buttermilk was so thick, like yoghurt, first time I've used this method, thanks oup. Dredged in buttermilk only once as I only got a small amount, 500ml, it disappeared really quick. Then into crumbs I made the other day from left over bread. Wife said it is beautiful, I will wait on grandkids assessment,lol. They are the best critics,lol.
Chips n salad all ready to go. They all be here in 3 hrs.
