    Before 2017 I had probably only made fried chicken three times in my life.  That’s because I would burn the crust before the meat was cooked through and it’s messy. Since I’ve had the sous vide I’ve made fried chicken 4 times and each time it’s come out cooked perfectly.  The chicken is cooked through and the crust is crispy and golden brown.  Thank You Anova!

    You can use whatever spices you prefer to us in the flour batter and you can’t overcook the chicken. The sky is the limit when you learn how to use the sous vide method.

    I am a convert!  I love my Anova, sous vide cooking and all things sous vide.

    Steps

    1
    Done
    2 hrs

    Sous Vide

    Bring the water in your SV pan/container up to 155F degrees.

    2
    Done

    Chicken Prep

    Place your chicken legs and thighs into a plastic ziplock dipping it in water to get all the air out, or if you have a vacuum sealer put your 'naked' chicken in the bag and seal it up tight.

    Drop the bag of chicken into the water for a minimum of 2 hrs.

    3
    Done

    When the cook time for the chicken is coming to an end, pour the vegetable oil into a heavy bottomed pan. Bring the heat up to 350F

    4
    Done

    Get two dishes out that are large and flat enough to dredge the chicken pieces in.

    In one of the dishes add the eggs then beat slightly.

    In the other dish add, then mix up all the dry ingredients.

    5
    Done

    Remove the chicken from the bags then pat it dry with a paper towel.

    Dredge the chicken pieces (one at a time) through the egg mixture, then the flour mixture. You only need to do this step once unless you like a heavier batter on your fried chicken. If that's the case, repeat the dredging x1.

    6
    Done
    5 minutes

    Hot Oil! Be Careful!

    After the oil has reached the desired temp of 350, carefully lower each piece of chicken into hot oil. Using tongs turn the pieces after a few minutes (when the flour is a nice, golden brown) so that all sides of the chicken have been cooked. Remove from the oil, set on paper towel. Pat off all the oil.

    Sprinkle with kosher salt prior to serving.

    Done

    To switch it up a bit........

    If you like buffalo wings - after the chicken is out of the oil, but before you serve it - try pouring about 2/3 of a cup of buffalo wing sauce into a bowl. Add a few tablespoons of melted butter and mix it up well. Dip the fried chicken into the sauce, then serve. It is AWESOME!

    It was about 5 minutes per side, but it really is up to you and your preferences for color and crispness. If you double dredge it’ll take longer because the batter is thick. You don’t want it to be doughy (if that makes sense) 😉
