4 Levels of Fried Chicken: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Jun 27, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of fried chicken. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which fried chicken was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/chef-chris-scott-buttermilk-lemonade-fried-chicken

    Sous vide is the trick to perfect (and thoroughly cooked) chicken every time......
    Break the chicken down into (works it out) 12 pieces, marinade, cook sous vide for 30 minutes, pat dry, dust with spiced flour, egg, coat with homemade breadcrumbs and fry - fight the kids off, telling them not to burn themselves.Serve to the adults with salted potato wedges and ketchup blended with Sriracha.
