Fried Chicken Recipe



Break the chicken down into pieces. Mix the Kosmo’s Q Chicken Soak with the water. Place the chicken pieces and Chicken Soak in a small Briner Bucket. Soak overnight.

Remove the chicken from the bucket. Rinse out the bucket. Return the chicken to the bucket. Cover with buttermilk. Let soak 4 hours.

Mix the flour, Cattleman’s Grill California Tri-tip Seasoning, Kosmo's Q Dirty Bird Competition BBQ Rub, celery seed and salt in a bowl. Remove a piece of chicken from the buttermilk. Place directly into the flour dredge mixture. Shake off the excess flour. Place on a wire cooling rack over a sheet pan. Repeat with the remaining pieces. Let rest about 20 minutes.

While the chicken rests, fill a Lodge Logic 7 quart dutch oven half full with vegetable/canola oil. Preheat the oil over a side burner to 325°F.

Fry the chicken pieces in batches in the oil, maintaining the oil temperature at about 300°F. Don’t overcrowd the dutch oven. When the outside is golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 165°F, remove the chicken from the oil and place on a clean wire cooling rack over a sheet pan.
