anyways...I am always up for new tricks or ideas.
I had never watched "Cooking for Real" w/ Sunny Anderson but I was flipping through the channels and she was giving a tip I had never heard before. She was frying chicken bits and said ....
Are you ready...
Add corn starch 1/3 Cup to your 1 Cup of flour
that you dredge your chicken in and it will make the crust lighter.
CORN STARCH are you serious??
AND let your chicken "rest" for about 10 mins on a wire rack before you fry it.
It was the BEST fried chicken ever.
You really do need to add lots of
SEASONINGS (add LOTS of SALT & PEPPER & GARLIC POWDER)
to your flour and cornstarch and mix it well. I also seasoned my egg wash.
I didn't care much for the orange sauce that she made...first it had to reduce for about 30 mins (NO YOU DO NOT ADD CORNSTARCH TO IT)
I think I would have preferred a sweet and sour.
So...there is my new trick for the week, thanks to Miss Anderson of the Food Network.
Let me know if you try it.
