Deep Frying Boneless Chicken

Deep-fried chicken is a classic dish that is enjoyed by many. Boneless chicken thighs are an excellent choice for deep frying because they are easy to prepare, cook quickly, and have plenty of juicy flavor and chicken thighs are the better choice for frying than chicken breast. How to deep fry boneless chicken thighs lets see this amazing recipe!

Preparing the Boneless Chicken thighs

Once the boneless skinless chicken thighs have been cut into strips, it is time to prepare them for frying. To do this, in a bowl add boneless chicken thighs, butter milk, salt, black pepper, red chili flakes, chat masala. Now make a flour mixture with plain flour, corn flour, salt, and chat masala. Take marinated chicken strip and coat both sides with the flour blend. Be sure to shake off any excess flour afterwards before placing the strips on a plate or cutting board until all pieces are coated. If desired, dip each piece once more for an extra crunchy texture when cooked.

Heating the Oil

Heating the oil is a key step in deep frying. To do this, fill the pot with enough oil to completely submerge the chicken. Using a thermometer, heat the oil to 350°F (176°C) and maintain that temperature throughout cooking. Or if you do not have thermometer, turn on the heat under the pot and wait for 5-6 minutes then throw a small boneless chicken piece in the oil if you see oil bubbles on the sides and it floats on the surface of the oil then it means your oil is perfectly preheated. So once it reaches to desired heat, reduce the heat slightly to keep it at a consistent temperature. Too much heat will cause your food to burn quickly and unevenly so be sure to monitor it carefully throughout cooking.

Frying the boneless Chicken thighs

Heat oil in a pot or wok over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C). When ready, carefully lower 2-3 pieces of seasoned chicken into the hot oil and fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels before serving hot!

Checking for Doneness

When deep frying a chicken thigh, checking for doneness is the most important part. To do this, the chicken should be removed from the hot oil and placed on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil. A thermometer can then be inserted into the thickest part of the thigh to check its internal temperature; if it reads at least 165°F (74°C), then the chicken has been cooked through. Another test to check if the chicken is done is by cutting into it; If there’s no pink in the center and all of its juices run clear, then it’s safe to eat. Lastly, pressing down on a piece of fried chicken should make it spring back up easily – if not, it needs additional cooking time.

Serving suggestions for fried boneless chicken thighs

I like my fried boneless chicken thighs with lots of spices and flavor so I sprinkle some chat masala on it after frying and serve it with salad.

One of the most popular serving suggestions for fried boneless chicken thighs is as part of a crunchy sandwich with sweet or spicy toppings like honey mustard, barbeque sauce, or ranch dressing. To assemble this sandwich, simply add two slices of bread together with your choice of toppings and topping off with one deep-fried boneless thigh per sandwich. Enjoy!

Another great suggestion is to serve up these delicious fried boneless thighs as an appetizer platter alongside dipping sauces such as honey mustard, teriyaki sauce, or buffalo sauce. Arrange them on a plate and provide toothpicks so guests can easily pick up each piece and dip into their favorite flavor combination! This will be sure to impress your family and friends at any gathering—it’s always nice to have something different than just chips or veggies!
