If one were search far and wide for a dish inspired by the culinary brilliance of Great Britain, they could do no wrong by indulging in English’s Fried Chicken! This classic recipe combines the familiar earthy flavors of marinated chicken with a unique and savory twist – a zesty beer-based batter that adds a bewitching burst of flavor with every bite.
• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
• 1 bottle of beer
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 4 teaspoons garlic powder
• 2 teaspoons paprika
• 2 teaspoons chili powder
• 2 teaspoons ground ginger
• ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
• Salt and pepper
• Canola or vegetable oil for frying
1. Begin by marinating the chicken. Slice each breast into four thin strips, and then place them in a shallow bowl. Pour the bottle of beer over the chicken strips, cover, and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Once finished marinating, remove the chicken from the beer and pat dry.
2. Now, prepare the seasoning and flour mixture. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, ginger, cayenne pepper, and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
3. Working one at a time, lightly dust each chicken strip in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and pour in the oil. Once hot, add the floured chicken strips in batches and fry until golden brown and cooked through, about two minutes per side.
5. Transfer the cooked chicken strips to paper towels to drain and cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
