Homemade Kfc Grilled Chicken
|Water||8 Cup (128 tbs)|
|Whole chicken||1 Small, cut up in 8 pieces|
|Vegetable oil||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Liquid smoke||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Soy sauce||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|All purpose flour||2 Teaspoon|
|Chicken bouillon powder||3⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Beef bouillon powder||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Coarse ground black pepper||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Crushed dried rosemary||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Dried basil||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Dried oregano||1⁄8 Teaspoon|
|Garlic powder||1⁄8 Teaspoon|
1. Dissolve the salt and MSG in the water to make the marinade (brine). Add the chicken, cover and chill for exactly 2 hours.
2. When the chicken has marinated, rinse each piece of chicken with water and blot dry. Whisk together the oil, liquid smoke, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Brush oil over one side of each piece of chicken.
3. Combine all of the ingredients for the seasoning in a small bowl. Sprinkle the seasoning over the oiled side of each piece of chicken, then flip each piece, brush with oil again and sprinkle on more seasoning.
4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, or 325 degrees F if you have a convection oven. Brush some of the leftover oil solution onto an oven-safe grill pan or grill plate. Set the pan over medium heat, and when the oil begins to smoke, place the chicken skin-side-down on the pan. Cook the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes or until the skin begins to brown and grill marks form on the chicken, then flip the chicken and cook it for another 1 to 2 minutes. Pop the grill pan into the oven for 20 minutes, then flip each piece of chicken and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the surface of the chicken is golden brown, and the chicken is cooked through.
Tidbits: MSG is monosodium glutamate, a natural amino salt. It can usually be found where herbs and spices are stocked in your market. Accent Flavor Enhancer is one popular brand.
If you can't find the chicken and beef bouillon powder for this recipe, you can use bouillon cubes. Just crush the cubes into fine powder before measuring.
