Ingredients for 6

  • 2 whole chickens

  • Salt and Pepper

  • Buttermilk

  • Pastry Flower

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon garlic power

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

  • Canola, peanut, or vegetable oil for frying


  • Step 1

    Set your Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 155ºF / 68.3ºC

  • Step 2

    Break down chicken into individual pieces. Salt the chicken heavily. This will create a brine while it’s cooking to help keep it as moist as possible.

  • Step 3

    Bag white meat and dark meat separately, as each will cook for different time.

  • Step 4

    Place dark meat in water bath and sous vide for two hours. After two hours, add white meat and cook for one hour, leaving dark meat in too.

    • Finishing Steps

    • Step 0

      Heat at least 4″ of oil in a pot or dutch oven to 400 degrees.

    • Step 1

      Take your pastry flour and add your spices, mix.

    • Step 2

      Dredge your chicken in the buttermilk and then the flour. If you like it extra crispy, dredge it in the buttermilk and flour a second time to make an extra thick coating

    • Step 3

      Fry until the coating looks good, usually about 2-3 minutes. It’s literally as simple as that. If it looks good, it’s done!
