  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 whole chicken (2 breasts, 2 thighs, 2 drumsticks, 2 wings)
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 quarts neutral oil, for frying


  1. Preheat your fryer to 350°F. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together all the spices. This aromatic blend will be the secret to your chicken’s irresistible flavor.

  2. Combine the spice mixture with the flour, brown sugar, and salt. This flour mix will give your chicken its signature crispy crust.

  3. Dip each chicken piece in egg white to lightly coat it. Then, transfer the pieces to the flour mixture, ensuring they are well-covered. Repeat for all chicken pieces, ensuring a thorough coating.

  4. Let the coated chicken pieces rest for about 5 minutes. This allows the crust to set and dry slightly, ensuring maximum crispiness when fried.

  5. Fry the chicken in batches. Breasts and wings should cook for 12-14 minutes, while legs and thighs will need a few extra minutes. The chicken is ready when a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165°F.

  6. Once fried, let the chicken drain on paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve the chicken hot, enjoying the perfect blend of crispy exterior and juicy interior.

Indulge in this perfectly crispy and flavorful fried chicken, a delightful treat for any meal. Whether it’s a family dinner or a weekend get-together, this recipe promises to be a crowd-pleaser. Savor every bite of this golden, crunchy goodness!
