Fake Fried Chicken aka Baked Fried Chicken
I made baked fried chicken because I didn’t have the oil to deepfry the chicken thighs. SO SAD. I should’ve just bought more oil but I was being a lame-o. Anywhoo, I marinated the chickens in a mixture of buttermilk, honey, chili-garlic paste (the really Azn kind), black pepper and minced garlic.
How did I not have enough oil to deep fry but have buttermilk? I didn’t have buttermilk – but I had milk and lemon buahaha. (Mix lemon and milk together for a few minutes, let it sit, and it’s akin to buttermilk). They call me MacGyver…(hardly)
After an overnight marinade, I dusted the chicken in a mixture of panko breadcrumbs and crushed ritz crackers.
Put it in the oven and whapow- I had fake fried chicken.
Next time, I will attempt to replicate bon chon. Or so I really really hope.
