Fried chicken is something we've simply learned to live without since going gluten-free....until now! This recipe is based loosely on a copycat KFC chicken recipe. To us, it's better than the original.
Recipe: Gluten Free fried Chicken
1 tsp parsley
2 tsp season salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp tarragon
3 tsp sage
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
3 tsp pepper
3 tsp salt
Gluten Free flour mix:
1 cup tapioca flour
1 cup rice flour
1 cup oat flour
3 cups buttermilk
In a large bowl, soak your chicken pieces in buttermilk. I let mine soak overnight in the fridge, but about an hour should do.
When you're ready to fry your chicken, heat oil in a large, thick-bottomed pot or deep fryer to 375 degrees.
Mix the gluten-free flours with your seasoning. Take your chicken pieces from the buttermilk and roll them in your flour mixture until they are thoroughly coated.
Place 3 to 4 pieces of chicken at a time in your hot oil and fry for 12 minutes on each side until cooked. Cool on a wire rack with paper bags underneath to catch excess oil.
I love this recipe and my husband says it's even better the next day!
