RECIPE: Fried Chicken with Garlic Powder (nightshade free and low salicylate)


When I went to make fried chicken tonight, I realized I could no longer use any of the spices I usually used because they contain paprika or some other red pepper.  argh!  So, I tried this on a whim.  Turned out okay, but a little bland – I’ll have to look for another spice to add to it to give it more flavor:

Bone-in chicken parts (whichever parts you like best)
Whole wheat flour
Garlic powder
Sea Salt
Butter (make sure it doesn’t have anything extra added to it like annato colors, etc.)  OR use safflower oil instead

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
In an oven safe pan (or multiple pans depending on how much chicken you’re cooking) place 1/2 stick of butter in the pan and place it in the oven until the butter melts (make sure it doesn’t burn)
Take the pan out of the oven and set it on a heat resistant surface.
Pour some flour into a large bowl.
One by one, grab a chicken piece and rub it around in the flour so that it covers the chicken piece on both sides.
Sprinkle salt over the bottom, and the top, of the chicken piece.
Sprinkle garlic powder over the top of the chicken piece.
Place the chicken piece SKIN SIDE DOWN in the butter/oil in the pan.
Repeat for each piece.
When all of the chicken is in the pan, put the pan in the oven.
Cook for 30 minutes.
Turn over the chicken pieces.
Cook another 30 minutes or until done.  You’ll want to keep an eye on the chicken when it gets close to done time as the flour might burn a bit if cooked too long.
