Gwen's Fried Chicken by Trisha Yearwood

For Trisha the secret to flavorful chicken, inside and out, is in the prep. Her mother, Gwen, taught her to soak the chicken overnight in salt brine, resulting in moist and flavorful meat.

Gwen's Fried Chicken by Trisha Yearwood

Directions

  1. Put the chicken pieces in a large bowl and cover with water. Sprinkle salt in the water, cover the bowl, and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight, up to 24 hours.
  2. Pour oil into an electric frying pan or deep, heavy skillet. Heat the oil to 375 degrees F. Check the temperature by sprinkling flour over the oil. If the flour sizzles, the oil is hot enough.
  3. Drain the water from the chicken and pat lightly with paper towels. Sprinkle each piece with pepper and coat with flour (you may not use all of the flour). Carefully place chicken in the hot oil. Cover the pan and open the vent to allow a small amount of steam to escape.Partially cover pan if no there is no vent on lid. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove the cover. Using tongs, turn each piece of chicken. Replace the cover and cook for 15 minutes more, or until done. Use a sharp, thin-bladed knife to check for doneness by slicing a drumstick to the bone. Neither the meat nor the juices should be pink. Drain the chicken on paper towels.

I absolutely LOVED this recipe! IT is simple yet so tasty! I personally would like to add a little more salt to it in with the flour, but it was ok as is. I cooked it and it was SUPER easy. It was so good that my husband kept saying this is so delicious, are you sure you didn't buy this dinner from the store??? haha I used the drumsticks only and it was a perfect meal. I kept eating it, and going mmmmm. I made this with her potato salad and it was soooo good also.
I like to take cold chicken out to the beach and so I had to test this cold also and it was still delicious! I made it super crispy and the skin was excellent hot or cold. This will be a keeper recipe! Thanks Trisha for providing us with your great family recipes. I am in love with the girl!!!! :) Thanks again! Aloha from Hawaii!
