Fried chicken is already so yummy, it really doesn’t even need improving in any way. It’s so crunchy on the outside and so juicy on the inside. It’s easily the most delicious kind of chicken, right? Why would we have KFC, Popeyes, and so many other fried chicken fast-food restaurants if it wasn’t so amazing?
But what if I told you that you could tweak your friedchicken to make it even more delicious based on the different types of breading that you like? You’d love that, right? Well, start up those fryers, folks, because I’m about to blow your mind.
Not only is it true that you can use all different sorts of things as the breading for your fried chicken, but you can even use things you might have never thought to use before. Things like snack foods. Yummy, carb-loaded snack foods!
In this video by YouTuber DeAnna Ford, you’ll see as she uses Cheetos (yes, Cheetos) to make a perfectly breaded crust on her fried chicken. Yes, those same Chester Cheetah, make-your-fingers-orange-when-you-eat-them Cheetos.
All you need to do is throw a bag of Cheetos into the food processor and blend them up. Then you just go about making your friend chicken like you normally would, only you substitute the pulverized Cheetos for your breadcrumb mixture. Then just fry it up!
I was skeptical at first, but the final result actually looks delicious in Ford’s video.
Now, think about the whole new world of fried chicken this opens up. You could use Flaming Hot Cheetos (if that’s your thing), Doritos, potato chips, and any other type of crunchy snack. Yum!
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely going to give this food hack a try. What’s the worst that could happen except, you know, me eating way too much fried chicken?
