Who’s ready for another epic Disney recipe?
We love seeing Disney release recipes that we can make at home. Lately, we’ve seen a smoothie and a cocktail recipe, and we created our own copycat EPCOT Gingerbread Cookie Sandwich recipe as well. We think we could make our own cookbook by this point! Get ready to add another to your list — now you can make the famous Fried Chicken from Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at home!
There are two things to make here, the brine and the fried chicken itself. Let’s start with the ingredients for both!
- 3 cups of cold water
- 2 tablespoons of garlic powder
- 4 tablespoons of coarse salt
- 1 medium chicken, cut into 2 legs, 2 breasts, 2 thighs, and 2 wings
- Canola oil
- Reserved brined chicken
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon coarse salt
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 2 teaspoons ground white pepper
To begin, combine your cold water, garlic powder, and coarse salt in a large glass bowl. Add your cut-up chicken, then cover and refrigerate for 8 hours.
Heat 3 inches of canola oil in a heavy-bottomed pot until it reaches 350°F. Take the chicken out of the brine, pat dry, and then dredge it in a whisked mix of your flour, cornstarch, salt, paprika, onion powder, and white pepper in a shallow bowl.
Carefully place the chicken in the oil and turn once while cooking. Cook breasts for 13-14 minutes, thighs for 9-10 minutes, and legs and wings for 7-8 minutes, or until all pieces have reached an internal temperature of 165°F. Drain on paper towels, then enjoy!
