4 Levels of Fried Chicken: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published: 27 June 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of fried chicken. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which fried chicken was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: https://www.ice.edu/blog/chef-chris-scott-buttermilk-lemonade-fried-chicken

                                                  If the butter milk was used to tenderise the chicken, what does the brine do ?

                                                    As much as the chefs version looks great, it is not every day friendly. It takes to long to prepare and there are far too many ingredients. A working parent, cooking a mid week meal will not have the time or inclination to go through so many stages. More likely to go down the easier route of frying chicken tenders
