A Recipe A Week: Week 11

Hey y'all!

This is definitely one of my favorite recipes I've tried so far! Can you tell I'm from the South?!

Triple Dipped Fried Chicken

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups beer or water
  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 (3 pound) whole chicken, cut into pieces

  1. 1. In one medium bowl, mix together 3 cups of flour, garlic salt, 1 tablespoon black pepper, paprika and poultry seasoning. In a separate bowl, stir together 1 1/3 cups flour, salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, egg yolks and beer. You may need to thin with additional beer if the batter is too thick.

  1. 2. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Moisten each piece of chicken with a little water, then dip in the dry mix. Shake off excess and dip in the wet mix, then dip in the dry mix once more.

  1. 3. Carefully place the chicken pieces in the hot oil. Fry for 15 to 18 minutes, or until well browned. Smaller pieces will not take as long. Large pieces may take longer. Remove and drain on paper towels before serving.


  1. Wow! Yours turned out good! Looks like KFC! Yum! I've seen this recipe or something similar on All Recipes, but never tried it!

  2. All of a sudden, I feel like chicken tonight ;)

  3. You can most definitely NEVER go wrong with fried chicken. Looks perfect for a meal after one of those rough days of work!

    So I've nominated you for an award over on my blog. Enjoy!

    This looks amazing! We tried something "similar" for lunch today...but since I'm from up North and not the South, it didn't come out looking like this. Looking forward to the new recipe! xx,

  5. Your chicken looks awesome! Love your recipes! I wonder if it would be silly to try it on boneless chicken? I always have it on hand. Think it would work out ok?


Thanks for stopping by y'all! I love your comments, and I read each and EVERY one!
