Each piece of meat in this recipe will be immersed it in a mixture with very aromatic, blond and light craft Pilsner beer, which will allow to create a slightly thicker crust so that each bite is a real delight for the senses.


Ingredients for 6 serves

1.5 kg of chicken thighs (any part of the chicken can be used, although we recommend the breast and thighs, are especially good for this recipe)

1 l vegetable oil


Mix I

3 cups of flour

2 teaspoons of fine salt

2 teaspoons of pepper

1 teaspoon of cayenne

2 teaspoons of paprika

1 tablespoon of garlic powder

1 tablespoon of onion powder


Mix II

1 1/3 cups of flour

1 1/2 cups of Pilsner Beer Albero

2 beaten eggs



First, we must add to a bowl all the ingredients of Mix I and stir, and in another bowl add all the ingredients of Mix II, and also, stir. Check the consistency of the mixture with beer and adjust the texture as necessary.

Working in batches, dip the chicken in the first bowl (flour and seasonings), then in the second bowl (dough with beer) and finally again in the first bowl, shaking the pieces to remove excess mix.

In a large frying pan add enough oil so that once the chicken is submerged it is covered by about 5 centimetres. Heat the oil to 177 ° C and add the chicken pieces in a single layer turning them so that they are fried all over their surface.

Fry for 15-20 minutes or until the inside of the meat is at 74 ° C.

Never make fried chicken without having a good digital thermometer to control the temperature, it is vital for an optimal result. If the oil is too cold, the chicken will absorb too much oil, if the oil is too hot, the breading will burn before the meat is cooked.

Now, just remain taste this fried chicken with Pilsner beer. The secret is in the mix with craft beer!
