Yes, you are reading this correctly. This is a recipe for FRIED BBQ CHICKEN!
I had thawed out a package of chicken breasts the night before to make something with it for dinner the next day. It was creepin up on 5 o’clock, din din time was fast approaching and I just couldn’t decide whether to make fried chicken or BBQ chicken. Kids weren’t very helpful because of course one said fried and the other said barbecue (typical, lol).
That is when my light-bulb went off and I thought why can’t I make fried barbecue chicken.. SO I DID! And it was delicious!
Here is how I did it…
First, let’s get to frying (& my secret ingredient to make it extra moist)
You will need:
- Salt & Pepper
- Mayo (yes, mayo!)
Mix about 3 cups of flour (depending on how much chicken you plan on making) add salt and pepper to taste. In another bowl, your going to add about 2 cups milk and about a half cup of Mayo, mix and set aside.
Tip: Keep one hand for the wet part and one hand for the dry part. This will help you from getting those monster hands when dipping!
Evenly coat each piece into the flour mixture, then into the wet mixture and set on a piece of parchment or foil and let sit for about 5 minutes. Then repeat in both dry and wet batters.
Heat vegetable or canola oil, which ever you prefer in a skillet. I like to use my cast iron for this but you can use whatever you want. Fry until golden brown, about 7 minutes on each side depending on how thick your chicken is.
Preheat your oven to about 400 degrees.
Then, get your favorite BBQ sauce and warm it up in the microwave for about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Stir to prevent hot spots. Then dip your fried chicken into the sauce, and set on a rack over a baking sheet lined with foil.
Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked thoroughly and the outside gets crispy.
Let cool, & ENJOY!
