Chef T's Magic Powder - for Incredible Burger Patties, Steaks, Chicken, Pork, Stews & Soups!!!
Recipe type: Seasoning / Rubs / Spices
Today we're going to make a batch of my magic powder. This amazing stuff is primarily for making the most incredible burger patties, however it can be used just as successfully to flavor roasts, stews, soups and really just about anything. After making the powder, I will demonstrate how to use it to make the burger patties, and a superbly tender roast spatcock chicken. The theory behind how and why this powder works so well will covered in another episode in the near future. Although you can naturally dry the ingredients for the powder in trays, it does help to have a food dryer with multiple racks.
  • 80g Fresh coriander leaves (with stems)
  • ½ Red Pepper
  • ½ Yellow Pepper
  • 30ml Tabasco sauce
  • 8 Portabello mushrooms (or procini)
  • 30ml Onion Flakes
  • 15ml Lemon pepper
  • 15ml +15ml Cornstarch
  • 15ml Salt
For the Burger Patties
  • 7.5ml Magic powder per 100g ground beef
  • 10ml Water per 100g ground beef
For the Chicken
  • Magic powder
  • Roasting vegetables of your choice
  • 1.8kg Chicken
  1. To start, place 80g of fresh coriander, including the stems into drying racks.
  2. Cut a half yellow pepper and a half red pepper into strips.
  3. Place these in a mixing bowl, pour in 30ml or 2 tablespoons of Tabasco sauce and toss the peppers until everything is coated.
  4. Cut 8 portabello mushrooms into slices. You can also use porcini mushrooms which work just as well.
  5. Place the sliced mushrooms and peppers into drying trays and stack these on your dryer for 36 to 48 hours until everything is well desiccated.
  6. To make the powder from all the dried ingredients, you will to measure 30ml or 2 tablespoons of dried onion flakes, 15ml or a tablespoon of lemon pepper, 15ml of salt and 15ml of cornstarch.
  7. Place all of the ingredients from the dryer on a chopping board and chop them roughly to make them more manageable for your spice grinder.
  8. Fill your spice grinder to the top with some of this mixture and machine it until reasonably fine.
  9. During the machining the mixture will break down considerably leaving space to add more of the mixture.
  10. Add more of the mixture along with some of the cornstarch.
  11. Machine it again, and carry on adding more of the dried ingredients along with a little cornstarch, until all of the ingredients from the dryer have been ground.
  12. Place this in a bowl, and add the salt, onion flakes, lemon pepper and remaining cornstarch. Mix this together well.
  13. Put the mixture back into the grinder in batches and machine each batch until fine.
  14. Place the fine mixture in a jug and add a further 15ml of cornstarch and mix this in. The cornstarch is used as an anti-caking agent.
  15. Transfer the magic powder to an air-tight sprinkle bottle with large holes and you're ready to go.
  16. To make your magic burger patties you will need 7.5ml or 1.5 teaspoons of magic powder for every 100g of ground beef as well as 10ml or 2 teaspoons of water for each 100g of beef.
  17. Place this all in your stand mixer with the dough hook attached and allow this to mix for 7 minutes on medium low speed, until well emulsified.
  18. Press the burger patties and grill as normal.
  19. Make up your burgers and enjoy. Here we see a double cheese burger using my magic patties and the McDonald's burger we made 2 episodes back.
  20. For the chicken, cut the bird down through breast bone and flatten it out. Place it in a large roasting pan.
  21. Sprinkle the magic powder liberally over the chicken and fill up any space in the pan with the roasting vegetables of your choice.
  22. Pour in 400ml of chicken stock and cover the pan with foil.
  23. Bake the chicken in a pre-heated oven at 200c or 400f for 45 minutes.
  24. Remove the pan from the oven, remove the foil from the pan and return it to the oven uncovered for a further 35 minutes.
  25. Increase the heat to 250c or 480f for a further 10 to 15 minutes until the chicken is crispy and golden. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

Zig Zag Lasagna! How to Make Zig-Zag Lasagna from Start to Finish - Quick & Easy Lasagna Recipe!!!
Recipe type: Pasta
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 6
Today we're going to artfully combine fresh pasta, creamy cheese sauce and chicken sausage to make a delicious zig-zag lasagna.
For the Pasta
  • 500g All-purpose flour
  • 5ml Salt
  • 250ml Water
For the Cheese Sauce
  • 130g Butter
  • 80g All-purpose flour
  • 2,5ml Nutmeg
  • 1200ml Full cream milk
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 200g Mature cheddar cheese, grated
For the Rest
  • 1200g Chicken sausage
  • 100g + 100g + 100g Mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Today we're going to artfully combine fresh pasta, creamy cheese sauce and chicken sausage to make a delicious zig-zag lasagna.
  2. To make the pasta, place 500g of all-purpose flour in your food processor along with a teaspoon of salt.
  3. Pour in 125ml or half of the water and machine this on high speed until the mixture resemble rough breadcrumbs, about 30 seconds.
  4. Pour in the remaining 125ml of water and machine this again on high speed until the dough starts to combine, about 90 seconds. Tilting the machine from side to side while doing this helps the process tremendously.
  5. You will know the dough is ready when it holds together when compressed.
  6. Turn the dough out onto your work surface and compress it into mass. Wrap the dough in cling-wrap and allow this to stand for 30 minutes.
  7. After 30 minutes, unwrap the dough and cut the block into 4 pieces.
  8. Flatten out one piece and run it through your pasta roller, starting on setting 1, working gradually to setting 4. Dust the pasta sheet with a little flour between each pass through the machine to stop any sticking.
  9. Square off the ends of the sheet and dust it liberally with flour on both sides.
  10. Put this aside and continue with the remaining sheets. At the end, combine all of the off-cuts and roll out a fifth sheet.
  11. For the cheese sauce, melt 130g of butter in a large pan over medium heat.
  12. Add 80g of all-purpose flour and a half teaspoon of nutmeg.
  13. Use a paddle to stir this into the melted butter until it is smooth. Allow this to cook for 90 seconds.
  14. Turn off the gas or remove the pan from the heat and whisk in 1200ml of milk and add 2 bay leaves.
  15. Return the pan to the heat and simmer the sauce until thickened, whisking continuously.
  16. Once thickened, remove the pan from the heat and add 200g of grated mature cheddar cheese. Use your paddle to stir this until the cheese has completely melted into the sauce.
  17. You will need 3 double potion lasagna dishes, or a single 6 portion pan... this would be equivalent to a large roasting tin.
  18. Spoon just enough of the sauce into each dish to cover the base.
  19. Cut the sausage to the length of the dish and place it in the dish equally spaced. For 6 portions you will need 1200g of sausage.
  20. Cover the sausage with lasagna sheet, cutting it just slightly smaller than the dish.
  21. Press the lasagna sheet down between the sausages to create furrows.
  22. Spoon enough sauce into the dish to completely cover the pasta.
  23. Cut another 4 lengths of sausage to fill the furrows created by the pasta. Press the sausages down into the sauce.
  24. Cut another piece of lasagna sheet to cover the sausages and press this down to remove any trapped air pockets.
  25. Cover the pasta with another layer of sauce and smooth it off with the back of your spoon.
  26. Sprinkle a further 100g of mature cheddar over the top of the sauce, before continuing with the remaining dishes.
  27. Bake the lasagna in a preheated oven at 180c for 35 to 40 minutes until crispy and golden on top.
  28. Remove the pasta from the oven and allow it to stand for 10 minutes to set.
  29. Use a sharp knife to cut cleanly through the cheesy top and the sausages.
  30. Use your lifter to lift the portions from the dish and serve immediately with the accompaniments and garnish of your choice.

KFC Crunch Burger - How to Make the KFC Crunch Burger at Home!!!
Recipe type: KFC
Cuisine: Chicken
Serves: 4
The KFC Crunch burger is one of the most recent additions to the KFC menu. Crispier and crunchier than the regular KFC burger, and almost as spicy as the KFC Zinger, the Crunch Burger is outstanding. This is how to make your own amazing Crunch Burger at home.
For the Curing Brine
  • 3 Liters water
  • 90g Prague powder #2
  • 35ml White pepper
  • 15ml Cayenne pepper
For the Coating
  • 5ml Citric acid
  • 500ml All purpose flour
  • 80ml Tapioca flour (or cornstarch if you cannot find tapioca)
  • 30ml White pepper
  • 30ml Cayenne pepper
  • 30ml Salt
  • 4 Eggs
For the Sauce
  • 60ml Tangy mayonnaise
  • 30ml Thin pepper sauce (Tabasco or Lea & Perrins)
  • 4 Burger buns
  • Lettuce
  • 4 Slices processed cheese
  1. Pour 3 liters of water into a medium size pot. Measure out the Prague powder, white pepper and cayenne pepper and add these to the pot.
  2. Place the pot over medium high heat, bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and allow it to simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Quick cool the brine by floating the pot in a sink of cold water.
  4. When the brine has cooled significantly, pour it into a non-reactive container.
  5. Place the chicken breasts in the brine, clip the lid on the container and transfer it to your refrigerator for 24 hours to cure.
  6. The following day, make up the coating mixture by combining the all-purpose flour, tapioca flour, citric acid, salt, cayenne pepper and white pepper.
  7. Whisk the eggs thoroughly and pour these into a large bowl.
  8. Remove the chicken breasts from the brine and pat them dry using a clean kitchen cloth.
  9. Trim away the fillets from the breasts. Save these for stir-fry or KFC Popcorn.
  10. Place the breast smooth side up on your board and gently flatten them out with your meat mallet.
  11. Before coating the breasts, sprinkle some of the seasoned flour over a large platter. This is where the coated chicken will set, and the flour will prevent the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  12. Working with one breast at a time, dredge the breast in the flour to coat the surface.
  13. Transfer it to the egg to wet all of the flour.
  14. Then back to the flour to get a good coating all over.
  15. Then back to the egg to wet all of the flour....
  16. Then a third and final coating of flour.
  17. Transfer the breast to the platter to set and continue with the remaining breasts.
  18. While the coating sets, combine the hot pepper sauce and the mayonnaise. You can use any thin hot pepper sauce like Tabasco or Lea and Perins.
  19. Cut the burger buns, unwrap the cheese slices and portion the lettuce.
  20. Half fill a wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 160c.
  21. Carefully lower the chicken breasts into the oil and fry these for 6 minutes, turning them every 90 seconds.
  22. Remove the breast from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  23. To make up the burger, spread a little sauce on the lower bun an place a breast on top of this.
  24. Top the bun with the processed cheese slice and a generous dose of lettuce.
  25. Give lettuce a generous dollop of sauce and you're done.
  26. And there it is.... simple genius from KFC.... made at home.

How to Make Long Eggs - Long Cylindrical Eggs Made Easy!!!
Recipe type: Eggs / Breakfast / Salads
Long eggs allow you to slice uniform cooked egg slices to dress salads, garnish breakfast, and simply confuse your guests. After visiting a long egg factory, I decided to see whether it was possible, and practical to make these at home without all the fancy equipment.
  • 4 x Large eggs
Equipment Required
  • 1 x Elastic band (long, or more joined)
  • 1 x 100ml Measuring cylinder
  • 1 x 250ml Hi-ball tumbler
  • 1 x Digital pot or pot on induction range
  1. To start, separate the egg yolks from the whites and whisk both thoroughly.
  2. Loop the elastic over one handle of your pot, stretch it across the pot and loop it over the other handle.
  3. Place the high-ball tumbler in the center of the pot.
  4. Invert the measuring cylinder and position this in the center of the tumbler.
  5. Lift the elastic band and position this across the center of the measuring cylinder. This will prevent the the tumbler and cylinder from floating when the pot is filled with water.
  6. Pour the egg white into the space between the cylinder and the tumbler.
  7. Fill the pot with hot water until the water level is about a half inch above the level of the egg white.
  8. When I say hot water, the water must be around 60c or 120f. If it is too hot, the tumbler could crack. This heat also prepares the tumbler for the heat to come.
  9. Set the temperature of your pot or induction cooker to 85c.
  10. Place a thermometer into the pot to monitor the temperature. When the temp hits 80c,start your timer. 30 minutes after this point, the egg white will be sufficiently set.
  11. Remove the elastic band. Carefully remove the measuring cylinder from the egg white leaving the set egg white with a gaping tunnel all the way through it.
  12. It helps the jiggle the cylinder back and forth to allow a little air down the side of the cylinder to break the vacuum below.
  13. Place a funnel into the center of the egg white and pour in the egg yolk until it is level with the top of the white.
  14. By this stage the temperature of the water will be at your target of 85c.
  15. Allow this to cook for a further 35 to 40 minutes.
  16. Towards the end of this time, you can test the egg yellow with a skewer. When it comes out of the yellow dry, the yolk has set properly.
  17. Remove the tumbler from the water.
  18. Using the handle of a dessert spoon press the handle carefully down the side of the egg. Work your way all the way around the edge of the egg.
  19. This will allow air into the glass and the egg will slide out much easier.
  20. All that remains is to slice your cylinder egg slices....

  20. Serve the egg rolls au gratin sprinkled with dusting of cayenne pepper and garnished with the remaining snipped chives.

Super Extra Crispy Deep Fried Chicken Wings - These Chicken Wings are Unbelievably Crispy and Yummy!
Recipe type: Chicken
Just a week or so ago we published the super-crispy pigs wings. The video was met with much interest, and quite a few of our viewers asked me to do the same super-crispy coating using chicken wings..... and here it is.
  • 8-12 Full chicken wings (16-24 winglets)
  • Oil for frying
  • 120ml Chicken seasoning of your choice
  • 500ml All purpose flour
  • 30ml Salt
  • 60ml Cornstarch
  • 140ml Chicken stock
  • 2 Eggs
  1. To start, trim of the wing tips and cut through the center joint of each wing.
  2. Place the wings in a large pan in a single layer. Sprinkle half of the seasoning of your choice evenly over the wings making sure to coat both sides.
  3. Transfer the wings to a large vacuum bag in a single layer and vacuum seal the bag. It is always a good idea to double seal both ends of the bag.
  4. Place the bag in your dishwasher on the high setting, or 70c, and let this wash for 60 minutes. Alternatively place the bag in a digital pot with temperature control at 70c and let it cook for 60 minutes.
  5. While the wings cook, add the other half of the seasoning to the flour and cornstarch and mix this until combined.
  6. Pour chicken stock into the seasoned flour a little at a time, using a whisk to mix it into the flour. If the whisk gets clogged, simply clear it and continue until all of the stock is added.
  7. Put this aside to dry a little while the chicken completes its cycle in the dishwasher or pot.
  8. Once the cycle completes, get into the coating with your hands and break down any bits that are too big.
  9. Remove the wings from the bag. Notice that there is almost no weight loss.
  10. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Working with one wing at a time, dip the wing in the egg to wet it all over.
  11. Drop the chicken into the coating and dredge it to get a good solid coating all over.
  12. Transfer the coated wing to a platter to set while you continue with the rest of the wings.
  13. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes before continuing.
  14. Half fill your wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f.
  15. Fry the wings for 4 to 6 minutes until super-crispy and golden.
  16. Remove them from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  17. Serve the wings immediately and savor the incredibly crispy and tasty treats.

  4. For the seasoned coating, measure out the white pepper, dried oregano and salt. Add this to the flour and mix this in thoroughly.
  5. Remove the drumsticks from the flavor pot and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  6. Working with a couple of drumsticks at a time, drop them into the flour, pop the lid on the container and shake it up to coat the chicken.
  7. Remove the lid, shake any excess flour from the drumsticks and transfer these to a platter while you continue with the remaining pieces.
  8. Half-fill a large pot or wok with oil and heat this to 170c or 340f. Fry the drumsticks in batches until they are lightly golden and crispy. This will take about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper. Continue until all of the drummies are complete.
  9. Serve the chicken immediately with a super-cold beer and the accompaniments of your choice.

How to make REAL KFC Fried Chicken at Home!!! The Real KFC Fried Chicken Recipe!!! Some time ago, I published the real KFC recipe. The response to this recipe was amazing, and judging by the feedback, it truly is the only KFC copycat recipe that is not a copy... it is the real thing. You can check out the entire KFC series by clicking the onscreen link now. Unfortunately this original KFC recipe takes 2 days to prepare and requires some specialized ingredients like saltpeter or Prague powder. Over the last few months, I have been working on a new version of this recipe that is far easier and user-friendly for the home cook. A few notes before we start.... I have adjusted and even changed some of the ingredients to compensate for the fact that the chicken is not cured and brined. You will need to own or at least have access to a vacuum packer, and you will need a dishwasher, or a large digital pot with temperature control.
  • 8-12 Chicken pieces (drums and thighs)
  • Oil for frying
For the Herb & Spice Blend
  • 15ml Paprika
  • 30ml Onion flakes
  • 5ml Dried Sage
  • 10ml Garlic powder
  • 5ml Dried Oregano
  • 15ml Cayenne pepper
  • 10ml White pepper
  • 5ml Dried basil
  • 5ml Dried marjoram
  • 15ml Dried and powdered coriander leaf
  • 5ml Ground ginger
  • Salt (2% of the weight of the chicken)
For the Rest
  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 30ml Salt
  • 60ml Cornstarch
  • 250ml Chicken stock (or 3-4 eggs, beaten to replace the cornstarch and stock)
  1. Starting with herbs and spices. Place the paprika, onion flakes, sage, garlic powder, dried oregano, cayenne pepper, white pepper, dried basil, dried marjoram, dried coriander leaf and ground ginger in a bowl and mix until combined.
  2. Transfer this to your spice blender and zap it all to a fine powder.
  3. Place 3 tablespoons of the powder in a sprinkle bottle.
  4. Weigh the chicken pieces and calculate 2 percent of this weight.
  5. This weighs 1200g, so I need 24 grams of salt.
  6. Measure this out and pour it into the shaker bottle. Shake it up to combine with the spice blend.
  7. Place the chicken pieces in a large roasting pan and sprinkle the spice blend over the chicken to get a good coating all over.
  8. This means on both sides and on the edges. This quantity of spice blend is sufficient for 12 pieces. I am only powdering 8 pieces, so will have a little spice left over. Add any leftover to the other half of spice blend.
  9. Place the chicken pieces in a large vacuum bag in a single layer. Vacuum pack the chicken. It is good idea to double seal both ends of the bag.
  10. Place bag in your dishwasher on the high setting which is worldwide standard 70c or 158f, for 2 full cycles or about 2 hours.
  11. Alternatively you can use a digital pot set to 70c, filled with water.
  12. While the chicken slow-cooks and absorbs all of the amazing flavors of the herbs and spices, we can mix the coating.
  13. Place the flour and the remaining spice blend in a large bowl.
  14. Add 30ml of salt and mix this together thoroughly.
  15. After 2 hours, remove the chicken from the dishwasher or pot, cut the bag and transfer the pieces to a large pan to cool for a few minutes. Notice that we have lost less the 2 percent of the original weight in juices. All of that yummy is still inside the chicken.
  16. To coat the chicken, you can beat 3 to 4 eggs, which is still my favorite, or here is an alternative. Whisk 4 tablespoons of cornstarch into 250ml of cold chicken stock. This will bond the coating very well, but as I said, I still prefer using egg.
  17. Pour the liquid into a flat bowl.
  18. Before continuing, sprinkle a layer of the flour mixture over 2 large platters. This is where the coated chicken will set, and the flour prevents the coating from sticking to the plate and getting damaged.
  19. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dunk the chicken in the liquid to wet it all over.
  20. Transfer this to the flour and dredge it to coat all over.
  21. Back to the liquid to wet all of the flour....
  22. Then back to the flour to get a good solid coating.
  23. Transfer this to a platter and continue with the rest of the chicken.
  24. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes before frying.
  25. Half fill a wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f.
  26. Carefully lower the pieces into the oil in batches and fry for 6 minutes, turning halfway through to ensure even browning.
  27. Remove the pieces from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper. Continue with the next batch.
  28. And there it is, an amazing batch of KFC...

How to Make Chicken Salami - Well Textured, Aromatic Chicken Salami with an Excellent Flavor Profile
Recipe type: Chicken / Sausage
Cuisine: Italian
Just the other day we made an amazing pepperoni, and I was inundated with requests to do something similar using chicken. This is a fantastic Milanese salami adapted to chicken. The result is beautifully succulent and spicy with very well rounded flavor profile.
  • 1.8kg Deboned chicken thigh - skin on
  • 36g Prague powder
  • 5ml Ground white pepper
  • 5ml Ground black pepper
  • 5ml Garlic granules
  • 5ml Sugar
  • 5ml Ground coriander seed
  • 5ml Ground cardamom
  • 100ml Red grape juice or red wine
  • 4 to 5 Min Salami cases (50mm x 250mm)
  1. Cut the deboned chicken thighs into cubes and spread them out across a large roasting tin. Transfer the tin to your freezer for 45 minutes to firm up for grinding.
  2. While the chicken chills, measure out the Prague powder, ground white pepper, cracked black pepper, garlic granules, sugar, ground coriander seed and ground cardamom.
  3. Combine these and mix thoroughly breaking down any lumps as you go.
  4. Remove the chicken from the freezer and run it through your grinder using an 8mm plate.
  5. Sprinkle the spice blend over the meat and mix this in until combined.
  6. Pour in the red wine or red grape juice and mix this in until all of the liquid has been absorbed by the chicken.
  7. Transfer the meat to your sausage stuffer and fit the 40mm funnel.
  8. Crank the handle to advance the meat to the end of the funnel.
  9. Slip a mini salami casing onto the funnel and crank the handle to fill the casing. Apply firm pressure while filling in order to get a well compacted salami.
  10. Remove the casing and twist off the end.
  11. Use a length of twine to tie the end off, then continue with the remaining salamis.
  12. Place the salamis on a rack over a pan and prick the casings along one side with a pin. Position the pricked side facing downwards.
  13. Transfer the tray to a preheated oven at 90c or 194f until the internal temperature reaches 72c or 161f.
  14. Use a probe thermometer to monitor the temperature every 60 minutes.
  15. The cooking process will takes 3 to 4 hours.
  16. Remove the salamis from the oven and allow them to cool before transferring them to your refrigerator to set completely.
  17. And there it is, a beautifully, firm, well textured and supremely tasty chicken salami.

Chilli Chicken Jerky Snack Sticks - Chilli Chicken Biltong Strips
Recipe type: Cured Meat / Dried Meat
Chicken jerky is super easy to make, and it makes great savory snack over the festive season and for the big game. Chicken jerky, as easy as it is, takes 2 days of waiting time, so you do need to plan ahead if you're making this for an occasion.
  • 650g Chicken breasts
  • 13g Prague powder #1
  • 15ml Cayenne Pepper
  • 50ml White vinegar
  • 1 liter Water (hot)
  1. Cut away the fillets from the chicken breasts. Keep these for other meals.
  2. Cut the breasts lengthways into strips 1cm or just less than a half inch thick.
  3. Measure out the Prague powder and combine this with the cayenne pepper. Mix this thoroughly, breaking down any lumps as you go.
  4. Transfer the powder to a sprinkle bottle.
  5. Sprinkle half of the powder over the base of a large stainless steel roasting tin.
  6. Lay the chicken strips out on top of the powder.
  7. Sprinkle the other half of the powder over the top of the chicken.
  8. Cover the pan with cling-wrap and transfer this to your refrigerator for 24 hours.
  9. The following day, place a rack over a clean dish towel.
  10. Combine the hot water and vinegar in a mixing bowl.
  11. Working with one strip of chicken at a time, dip it briefly in the vinegar solution and transfer it to the rack.
  12. Continue with this leaving a little space between each strip.
  13. It does help if you have a multi-level rack if you're making this quantity or more.
  14. Place the racks in a preheated oven at 80c or 175f for 4 to 7 hours depending on how dry you want your jerky.
  15. Once you've happy with the result, remove the jerky from your oven, allow to cool, and they are ready to serve.
  16. The jerky stores very well in a paper bag in a cool place, or wrapped in cling-wrap and frozen.
