Oh, that crispy amazingly seasoned outer crunch of good fried chicken can’t be beat!
Combined with the tender, moist, flavorful meat on the inside, perfection!!
This dutch oven has it all, and cooked this way makes it even better.
I will take you through the easy steps, so come try this one out, I think you’ll want to make it every week
I have a GREAT 2-page Dutch Oven cheat sheet HERE to help you follow along
Dutch Oven Fried Chicken
12 oz or 1 1/2 cups ranch dressing
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon Montreal Chicken steak seasoning
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups corn flake crumbs, make into crumbs
2 sticks, 1 cups butter ( the real stuff)
7-8 pieces of cut up chicken
food grade disposable gloves
Heat Charcoal according to directions (and find all the basics you need to know) HERE
Lightly oil a 12″ dutch oven.
1- In a bowl combine the flour, Montreal chicken steak seasoning, brown sugar, poultry and salt.
2- In a bowl combine the beaten egg and salad dressing.
3- In a bowl pour in the corn flake crumbs.
Cover a cookie sheet or area with waxed paper.
Begin by rinsing off the chicken and patting dry.
Wearing your disposable gloves, and working with once piece of chicken at a time, dredge, or coat a piece of chicken by placing it in the bowl with the flour mixture.
Now, carefully so you are not making a huge mess, roll that piece of flour seasoned chicken in the
Next, roll in the crushed corn flakes
Place the coated chicken onto the waxed paper.
Continue this until all the chicken pieces are coated and prepared. Toss out the disposable gloves.
Meanwhile place 10 briquettes on the the ground/surface area.
Melt the butter in your heated dutch oven. Again, to see how to prepare coals click HERE
Carefully, with long tongs, place the coated and prepared chicken into the hot dutch oven
Place dutch oven lid on top, along with 16 hot coals.
You will cook this for 50 minutes to 1 hours; which means you will need to put on new coals to keep the heat going to 350 degrees, like this as they turn white and burn out.
Continue to cook the chicken until it is cooked all the way through and juices run clear, checking as needed.
ENJOY! Serves 4
