How to make it

  • Rinse the chicken pieces and place in a large skillet. Just about cover the chicken with lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer covered for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken, dry with paper towels, and discard the water. Fill the skillet with about 1 1/2 inches of oil.
  • Combine the Bisquick, onion salt, garlic powder, and pepper in a bowl. In another bowl, combine the beer and egg and then add to the dry ingredients. Mix to combine into a smooth batter. Depending on the amount of cayenne you use, the batter will be slightly orange in color.
  • Heat the oil to about 350. Dip the chicken into the batter, shake off the excess, and carefully place into the hot oil. Cook for abut 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown, turning once.
  • Remove the cooked chicken, drain on paper towels, and salt to taste. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.

    This was an interesting technique to making fried chicken. I used thighs and I upped the oil temperature to 375. I used chipotle chili powder. Didn't have onion salt so I used onion powder and salt. I think some smoked paprika would be nice in this, too. Used Stella Artois beer and I definitely could taste it. Added a picture and put this in IMI on 8/31/14.

    Very good! I actually decided to bake mine instead and it still had a very crispy outside. I would definitely try this one again!

    I like the pre-cooking. It reduces the amount of time you're standing over a skillet full of hot oil. Thanks for posting. Will try this soon. : )
