How to Make Top Secret Recipes Extra Crispy Chicken Recipe

  1. Trim any excess skin and fat from the chicken pieces. Preheat the shortening in a deep fryer to 350°F.
  2. Combine the water, salt, and 2 teaspoons MSG for the brine in a large bowl and let it sit for 2 hours. Turn the chicken a couple times as it marinates.
  3. Combine the beaten egg and milk in a medium bowl. In another bowl, combine the remaining coating ingredients (flour, salt, pepper, paprika, 3/4 teaspoon MSG, and poultry seasoning).
  4. When the chicken has marinated in the brine, transfer each piece to paper towels so that excess liquid can drain off. Working with one piece at a time, first coat the chicken with the dry flour mixture, then the egg and milk mixture, and then back into the flour. Toss the chicken around in the coating to build up a heavy coating on each piece. Stack the chicken on a plate or cookie sheet until each piece has been coated.
  5. Drop the chicken, one piece at a time, into the hot shortening. Fry half of the chicken at a time (4 pieces) for 7 to 10 minutes, or until it’s golden brown. You should be sure to stir the chicken around halfway through the cooking time so that each piece cooks evenly
  6. Remove the chicken to a rack to drain for about 5 minutes before eating.
