Day 122/365: Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Recipe

May 2, 2011

Is Philippines, the land of chicken for food? Anyways, what is your Top 5 Chicken Favorites? A choice from available fastfood and restaurants.

My votes:

1. KFC Chicken – It’s the gravy! and its only available here in the Philippines! They called it a special gravy to fit the Filipino palate. The brand itself is chicken so it’s an automatic first choice, being salty and the skin is always the last piece we would like to eat. (Deep Fried)

2. Chicken BonChon – It’s the garlic soy-chicken glaze! This is truly addicting but not my daily food to eat. It has a unique taste and their spicy flavor is truly spicy! be ready with a glass of water while having it, but surely you can finish it all for there’s an “addicting” scent and flavor on it. (Deep Fried)

3. Jollibee Chicken – It’s the crunchiness plus the gravy too. The fastest to get due to it’s wide available branches.

4. Max Fried Chicken – The original and classic Filipino Fried Chicken plus your favorite banana ketchup! They will be my top favorite every time they have an all you can eat chicken promo. burp!

5. Sr. Pedro Lechon Manok – It’s the roasted flavors! The only grilled chicken which I like.

“Original Kentucky Fried Chicken” Coating

Ingredients:
– 2 envelopes tomato soup mix, preferably Lipton cup-o-soup brand
– 2 envelopes Italian dressing mix
– 1 tablespoon paprika
– 2 teaspoons dried chervil (optional, but makes a huge difference in taste)
– 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
– 1 teaspoon instant chicken bouillon powder
– 1 teaspoon dried parsley
– 1 teaspoon tarragon
– 1/2 teaspoon sage
– 1/4 teaspoon pepper
– 3 cups pancake mix

Instructions:

Step 1. Blend all of the Kentucky Fried Chicken ingredients for the coating in a blender.

Step 2. The fried chicken coating is enough for a whole chicken, cut up. Soak the chicken pieces in buttermilk for at least one hour in the refrigerator. Remove chicken from buttermilk and roll in the chicken coating mixture above. Let chicken sit at room temperature while waiting for the oil to get hot.

Step 3. Deep fry if possible for the most authentic copy of the original Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe. If that is not possible, use a cast iron skillet. Do not crowd the chicken when placing into the skillet. Use lard or shortening if you really want that original Kentucky Fried Chicken taste.

Step 4. Brown the chicken in the skillet on high heat. Then turn down the heat and cover the pan. Cook until the fried chicken is done, about 30 minutes. During the last 5 or 10 minutes, uncover the pan and turn up the heat. This will crisp up the fried chicken. Be careful not to burn the chicken during this last step.

Step 5. Remove the fried chicken and drain on paper towels. Serve while still hot.

KFC Gravy
– 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening, melted
– 3 tablespoons of Original Breading Flour**
– 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
– 1 can Campbell’s Condensed Chicken Stock
– 1 can water

Instructions
Step 1. First we are going to make a roux (a cooked mixture of wheat flour and fat, traditionally clarified butter) with the melted shortening and 1 1/2 tablespoon of breading flour. Cook this over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until the roux browns in color to resemble a nice milk chocolate color. Once the mixture turns brown remove it from the heat and add the remaining flour and slowly add the liquid(s) to incorporate it so no lumps.

Step 2. Bring the mixture to a boil for 2 minutes, reduce the heat and allow the mixture to thicken which would take about 3 to 5 minutes.

**That is just the flour that you use to bread the chicken with.
