Tyler Florence’s Extra Crispy Chicken

There are as many southern fried chicken recipes as there are cooks in the world.

I had a taste for something different from my usual fried chicken so I tried this recipe from television  chef and owner of San Francisco’s Wayfare Tavern, Tyler Florence.

It takes about 4 hours to produce this wonderful chicken, but it is worth it!


To give this chicken the most amazing flavor and texture, before frying the chicken, the recipe calls for the baking of the chicken at 200 degrees for 2  1/2 hours. The chicken is then placed in a buttermilk and hot sauce brine for an hour. Then the baked and brined chicken is then coated in a seasoned flour and fried in a garlic and herb infused oil…..and the final result is a perfectly moist and crispy chicken that is soooo delicious!
