FRIED CHICKEN LOCAL MAUI STYLE

Yes Fried Chicken Maui Style!
Brought to you by 

Fried chicken isn't for just for our southern fried rock and roll brethren, on Maui we got our style of fried chicken that can be just as good…better? Ahhh, I won't go there because I know how southerners can be about their fried prized chicken.

Here's my take on fried chicken, it needs to be seasoned at least a few hours before being fried into a crisp juicy product.

Here's a recipe for you guys that's easy to prepare.

INGREDIENTS:

5 lbs. of chicken thighs, thawed if frozen
Garlic Powder
Salt
Pepper
Paprika
Chili Powder

2 cups of sour cream
2 cups of mayonnaise
1/4 of hot sauce

5 cups of all purpose flour
2 cups of cornstarch
2 cups of cornmeal

Directions.

1. Mix some garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder to your specs. Toss the chicken in this mixture and set aside.

2. In another bowl, mix the sour cream and mayonnaise and hot sauce together, coat the chicken pieces in this mixture and refrigerate for about 2 hours or more.

3. In a mixing bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch and cornmeal together. Dredge chicken in this mixture and set aside.

4. Heat up a deep fryer to about 300 deg F, or when a bread crumb about an inch cube sizzles quickly.

5. Deep fry the chicken in batches so it cooks evenly, to ensure each thigh is cooked, stick a thermometer in the center of each thigh, if the temperature reaches about 155 degrees F, remove and set aside to rest a few minutes, the chicken will continue to cook to at least 160 degrees which should be safe to eat, as long as there is no blood dripping from the inside.

Serve with some veggies and rice or potatoes.
