Instructions
  1. Today we’re making crispy tarragon deep-fried chicken. The manner in
  2. which this dish is prepared results in a juicy, super-tender chicken with
  3. tons of flavor and an aroma that will have your guests clamoring for
  4. more and more.
  5. The technique we use is suited for any size batch, but certainly makes it
  6. much easier for you when making large batches for bigger crowds, as
  7. the frying time is much shorter than for regular fried chicken.

  9. already, also give us a thumbs-up, and share this with your family and
  10. friends --- every little bit helps us to grow the channel, and your
  11. support is much appreciated.
  12. To start, preheat your oven to 200c or 400f.
  13. Measure out 2 tablespoons dried tarragon flakes, 1 tablespoon dried
  14. garlic flakes and 2 tablespoons of dried chilli flakes.
  15. You also need 175ml chicken stock, 50ml dry white wine, and 30g of
  16. softened butter.
  17. Pour these all into one jug and mix them all until well combined.
  18. Place your chicken pieces in a large baking pan and pour the flavoring
  19. mixture over the chicken pieces. Cover the pan with foil and bake the
  20. chicken pieces for 80 minutes.
  21. After 80 minutes, remove the chicken from the oven, carefully remove
  22. the foil and transfer the chicken to a cooling rack in another pan to
  23. cool for 30 minutes.
  24. While the chicken cools, place 2 tablespoons of Himalayan rock salt
  25. and 1.5ml of pure MSG in your spice grinder. Machine this until you
  26. have a very fine powder. This will only take a few seconds. The powder
  27. must be as fine, if not more refined than the flour it is going to be
  28. combined with. This helps to get a very even distribution of the powder
  29. through the flour coating.
  30. In another pan, measure out 1 cup of corn starch and one cup of strong
  31. white bread flour. Add 2 teaspoons baking powder, and the powdered
  32. MSG and salt.
  33. Mix this all until thoroughly combined.
  34. In a large jug, combine 3 egg with 150ml full cream milk. Whisk this
  35. briefly and put it aside.
  36. Use a little of the flour mixture to sprinkle over a large platter. This is
  37. where the coated chicken will rest before being fried. The layer flour
  38. prevents the coating on the chicken from sticking to the platter and
  39. getting damaged.
  40. To oat the chicken, drop a few pieces of the chicken into the flour
  41. mixture and mix them around until they are coated.
  42. Dip them in the egg and transfer them directly back to the flour
  43. mixture. Dredge these in the flour until well coated. Transfer them to
  44. the platter to rest before frying, and continue with the remaining
  45. pieces.
  46. Heat your oil to 180c or 350f. Fry the chicken pieces in batches for 5
  47. minutes per batch until crisp and golden. Remove the pieces from the
  48. oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  49. Allow these to stand for a couple of minutes before serving.
  50. Here we can plainly see just how moist and tender the chicken is when
  51. prepared in the manner. In addition, if you’re catering for a large
  52. crowd, the chicken can be broiled the day before and refrigerated,
  53. leaving only the coating and frying for the day of the occasion.
  54. That’s it for today folks, please like, subscribe and share, and we’ll see
  55. you again real soon.
