But wait, can you use bread flour to fry chicken?
Yes, you can use bread flour to fry chicken. Bread flour is a good option for frying as it has a higher protein content compared to all-purpose flour, resulting in a crispier and crunchier texture.
However, it is important to note that bread flour may absorb more oil than other flour, so it is recommended to use it in moderation and to drain the fried chicken on paper towels to remove any excess oil. So, go ahead and give bread flour a try for your next fried chicken recipe.
- 1 ½ Cup Bread Flour
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- A Whole Chicken Cut into 8 Pieces
- ½ Tablespoon Corn Starch
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
- 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
- 2 Cups Vegetable Oil
- ½ Teaspoon Paprika
- 2 Large Eggs
Step 1: Separate the Chicken into Pieces
A medium-sized chicken is a good choice for fried chicken. Take a whole chicken and cut it into a minimum of 8 pieces. The pieces should be boneless and skinless. It’s also fine to use the breast part only.
You can make chicken tenders with bread flour in the same way. Remove dark spots and dirt. Wash them with fresh water.
Marinate the chicken pieces with vinegar or buttermilk, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. Let them rest for 15 minutes.
Step 2: Mix Flour with Spices
Put 1 ½ cups of bread flour in a large mixing bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of baking powder and ½ tablespoons of cornstarch. Use a hand beater to mix them thoroughly.
Then combine 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon of onion powder. Again, use the hand beater and make a fine bread-flour mixture.
Step 3: Coat the Chicken with Egg and Flour
In another mixing bowl, beat two eggs. You can use either a hand beater or a stand mixer to do the task. Now take the chicken pieces one by one. First, dip them into the beaten egg.
Second, dredge them into the bread flour mixture. Third, coat them thoroughly in the flour. Finally, shake the chicken pieces to remove the extra flour. Place the prepared chicken on a plate.
Step 4: Get the Chicken Deep Fried
Now it's time to fry the chicken. It is the most important part of the whole recipe. I usually prefer to use a cast iron skillet. This food is also fine for frying in a deep fryer.
Pour 3 cups of vegetable oil. For health issues, canola or sunflower is recommended. Preheat the oil until it reaches 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Check the temperature with a cooking thermometer. After heating the oil, carefully place the chicken pieces one by one. Lower the flame to medium.
After 5 minutes, start stirring the chicken. When the chicken pieces turn golden, remove them with a strainer. Place them on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Fry the pieces in batches.
Step 5: Garnish, Serve, and Enjoy
Ultimately, crispy and healthy bread-flour-fried chicken is ready. Sprinkle ground black pepper and salt all over the chicken. Enjoy the delicious chicken with your favorite sauce.
