Chicken is one of my favorite foods. I love chicken wings, and no matter what you do to them, they’re good. They’re just so easy to prepare for a quick dinner or for a party. I mean, how many times have you eaten at Buffalo Wild Wings? Probably too many times! But this recipe isn’t about buffalo anything; it’s about crispy golden chicken pieces that will make your mouth water with every bite.
1/2 cup baking powder
Baking powder is a leavening agent used to make baked goods rise. It’s a mixture of bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar, which react when they are mixed with liquid. Baking powder can be found at most grocery stores in the baking aisle or near the spices section.
You can also make your own baking powder by mixing one part cream of tartar with two parts baking soda (by weight) in an airtight container and storing it out of direct sunlight for up to six months!
1/2 teaspoon salt
Salt is a critical ingredient in crispy chicken because it helps with flavor, texture and browning. It also enhances tenderness. If you’re using kosher salt or sea salt (which are coarser than regular table salt), you may need to add more than 1/2 teaspoon per pound of meat.
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 pounds chicken pieces, skinned
- Use a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken is cooked through. Chicken should be cooked to 165 degrees, and not pink in the middle.
- Cooking time depends on the size of your chicken pieces–the smaller they are, the faster they’ll cook!
- If you want to cook your chicken in the oven: preheat it to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 Celsius). Place a rack on top of a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Arrange the chicken pieces on top of this rack so that none touch each other; this will keep them from steaming together as they bake and make sure they get crispy all over their surface area evenly instead of just where they’re touching each other (which would cause some parts not get crispy). Bake until done–about 30 minutes for small pieces like drumsticks or wings; 45 minutes for breasts/thighs; 1 hour maximum if using really big legs/wings etc…
2 cups buttermilk
Buttermilk is a type of milk product that’s been fermented, giving it a distinct taste. Buttermilk can be used in cooking and baking–it makes a tangy sauce and adds moisture to baked goods.
4 cups flour
Flour is a staple in cooking and baking. It’s made from wheat, which is ground into a powder. Flours are used to make bread, pasta and other baked goods; they’re also used to thicken sauces and gravies.
