What To Know
- This is because reused oil has a lower smoke point, which means that it begins to break down at lower temperatures and can therefore lead to a decrease in the quality of your fried chicken.
- If the chicken is not seasoned, it will not have a chance to turn golden brown, no matter how long it is fried.
Why is my fried chicken not golden brown? That’s a question that haunts me every time I make a batch of fried chicken. I’m always striving for the perfect golden brown color, but it’s not always easy to achieve. In this blog post, I’m going to share with you my tried and true tips for getting the perfect golden brown color on your fried chicken every single time!
1. The chicken wasn’t breaded properly
The chicken wasn’t breaded properly. When I bite into it, I can taste the raw chicken and it’s just overall unpleasant. Also, my chicken wasn’t golden brown. I was really excited for some good fried chicken and I was very disappointed.
2. The oil or shortening isn’t hot enough
The oil or shortening isn’t hot enough: If your oil is too cool, it will take too long for the batter to crisp and will also make your chicken oily or soggy. Make sure your oil is hot enough by using a cooking thermometer or dropping a small piece of bread into the oil. If it turns golden brown in 10 seconds or less, it’s ready.
Your chicken isn’t cooked long enough: Make sure you cook your chicken for at least 4-5 minutes per side, or until it is golden brown and crispy. If you don’t cook your chicken long enough, it won’t get crispy and will instead be soft and soggy.
3. The chicken was fried in reused oil
If your fried chicken is not golden brown, it is likely that the oil used to fry it has been used previously. This is because reused oil has a lower smoke point, which means that it begins to break down at lower temperatures and can therefore lead to a decrease in the quality of your fried chicken.
There are a few things you can do to avoid this issue. First, try to use fresh oil whenever possible. This will help to ensure that your fried chicken turns out golden brown and crispy every time. Second, be sure to monitor the temperature of your oil carefully. If it seems to be breaking down, try to lower the temperature or remove the chicken from the oil to prevent it from overcooking. Finally, be sure to drain your fried chicken thoroughly before serving it. This will help to remove any excess oil and will also prevent your chicken from becoming soggy.
4. The chicken was fried too long
There are a few reasons why your fried chicken may not be golden brown. One reason could be that the chicken was fried for too long. Chicken is naturally white, so it will not turn golden brown, no matter how long it is fried. The other reason could be that the chicken was not seasoned enough. If the chicken is not seasoned, it will not have a chance to turn golden brown, no matter how long it is fried.
5. The chicken wasn’t seasoned enough
The chicken in this dish wasn’t seasoned enough. I could barely taste any seasoning on the chicken and it was really bland. The chicken also wasn’t golden brown, it was a very light brown and didn’t have that nice, crispy, golden coating that I was hoping for. It just didn’t taste good.
