Print this recipe
In Jamaica Sunday dinner isn't complete without Fried Chicken. A delicious and easy to prepare recipe that is everything you expect.
1 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
2 cups Flour
4lbs Chicken, cut in pieces
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
2 small onions
12 pimento berries (all spice)
1 tbsp all purpose seasoning
1 scotch bonnet pepper
3 garlic cloves
2 to 3 cups Vegetable Oil
In a large bowl mix together paprika, onion , garlic, pepper, all purpose and allspice, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper
Place chicken in the bowl with seasoning mix and rub the seasoning into chicken until it is coated; place in fridge overnight, or for at least two hours
Remove bowl from fridge and set aside
In a large baking pan mix together flour, thyme, paprika, cayenne, black pepper and salt
Piece by piece dip the chicken in baking pan to coat with flour; shake off excess flour.
Place chicken on a rack and let sit until the flour is no longer dry, about 20 minutes.
This time will also bring it closer to room temperature which will make it cook quicker
While chicken is on the rack, heat oil on High in a large Dutch pot or deep skillet
Fry chicken in batches until golden brown, about 10 minutes each side, depending on how big the pieces are
Let chicken rest in a 250-degree F oven for about 20 minutes, which will allow it to finish cooking and stay crispy
