Crunchy Homemade Fried Chicken

Crunchy Homemade Fried Chicken

Home-made fried chicken |

  • 3 lbs chicken drumsticks
  • 4 cups canola oil (sunflower oil)
  • 1 cup corn starch
  • Chicken coating
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • Sauce
  • 5 small dried chili peppers
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (GF Tamari)
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  1. Place chicken in a large bowl. Add all the ingredients listed under chicken coating and mix well. Coat chicken with corn starch by rolling each drum stick in a bowl of cornstarch.
  2. Add 4 cups canola oil to a pot, and heat on medium high heat for about 8 minutes -- until a wing dipped in it bubbles.
  3. Add all the wings to the pot and let cook for 15 minutes, turning with tongs so each side gets fried.
  4. Remove wings to a colander, and let cool a few minutes. Add wings back to the oil and continue cooking for another 15 min. This is double frying and makes the chicken extra crispy. You should hear a "scratch scratch" sound when you grab the chicken with tongs, letting you know the chicken is fully crispy. Remove and set on paper towels.
  5. Prepare sauce by adding all sauce ingredients to a non-stick pot and cooking till bubbly.
  6. Add chicken to sauce and toss with spatula till well coated.
  7. Serve warm.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
