Reverse Engineered Popeye’s Chicken


It’s been a while since I last posted, so I’ve already forgotten which number this is,.  This dare started because a few friends were talking about how much they miss Popeye’s chicken.  This stuff is expensive, but is probably the best in terms of fast food fried chicken.  After that whole protest by the franchise operators, Popeye’s chicken became a highly valued commodity.  Just thinking of that mashed potato-like substance makes me hate myself for loving that stuff all over again.  Without further ado, here’s the recipe:

-egg wash (equal parts egg and milk)

-flour (2/3)

-cornstarch ( 1/12)

-baking powder (1/12)

-salt (1/12)

-black pepper (1/12)

-paprika (1/12)

-Chicken (obviously)

Objective:  get the batter to stick to the chcken, by alternating between egg wash soaking and flouring
Fry at 250 Fahrenheit
