Deepfried and Panfried Chicken

Can you soak chicken in regular white milk instead of buttermilk? Will you still get the same moistness after cooking the meat? When eggwashing chicken, do you put chicken in eggwash, then flour then eggwash and then pan or the other way around?

My best tips for frying chicken

Margaret, to answer your question, yes you can soak chicken in regular whole milk instead of buttermilk. Before egg washing, drain milk from chicken. Then dip your chicken piece by piece into the egg mixture, remove and then cover generously with your flour mixture. Repeat this process for your remaining pieces of chicken.

Here are a few tips for frying your chicken.

1. Be sure to heat your grease to the proper temperature before frying your first batch. Use a grease thermometer to check temperature.

2. Be sure to maintain proper temperature while frying the chicken, this could mean you may have to lower the temp if the grease gets too hot or maybe you'll have to raise the temp.

3. Watch carefully while you're frying to be sure no grease fires pop up -- keep a lid nearby to smother the fire.
