    I brined the chicken and then sous vide the chicken for 45 min. After you sous vide it you can put in the fridge so you can finish deep frying it at your convenience. Omg the best chicken I have ever had in my life!

    Darn good chicken. TAKE YOUR TIME, don’t rush it. A person who takes their time, makes the best fried chicken.

    Loved it! The brine made the chicken so moist and tasty. I loved the way she carved the chicken into a "cut ten." I really recommend using fresh oil though, otherwise it might make your skin burnt and chicken under done.

    Amazing amazing amazing. I didn't think I'd be able to make good fried chicken on the first try but this recipe worked perfectly. One thing: I used a deep fryer because managing hot oil on a stove sucks, and I'm happy I did.
