Why American Fried Chicken

We have tried and tested hundreds of recipes on the internet to create our awesome coating. We have spent hundreds of hours in the kitchen and spent thousands of dollars trying to recreate the taste of the crowd pleaser that everyone loves.

In our opinion, nothing we tried could deliver both the flavour and texture that we associate with Kentucky Style Chicken, so we set out to remedy that.  No more will you need to spend hours following recipes only to be disappointed by the end result.

We think our coating is the most authentic Kentucky style chicken coating on the market and to ensure quality and flavour we have pre-mixed it, so you can get consistent results.  Once you have tasted it for yourself, we are sure you will be coming back time and time again for more.

Preparation

  • Can I use frozen Chicken?
    Yes but please allow it to thaw fully before cooking
  • Can I use pre-cooked chicken?
    Never use pre-cooked chicken always use raw, uncooked chicken
  • Can I pre-coat the chicken pieces and then fry them later or the next day?
    We recommend coating and cooking the chicken following the methods described.  Pre-coating the chicken can cause the coating mix to become too ‘wet’ and may affect the crispiness of the end product.
  • Can I cook the chicken in an oven?
    This coating is unsuitable for oven cooking.
  • Do I need to take the skin off the chicken?
    For best results we recommend taking the skin off the chicken as this gives the crispiest coating.
  • Does it matter if I use light milk?
    Please use your regular milk full fat or light work equally well
  • Does it matter what oil I use?
    We recommend using any generic or branded vegetable oil or vegetable oil blend.
