Crispy, juicy fried chicken 100% gluten free
Fried Chicken: you can’t beat this southern comfort food. One of the foods I miss the most being Celiac is Fried Chicken. I remember the days of eating KFC, Raising Cane's, Babe's Chicken in Dallas and many more. Eating Fried Chicken while on a gluten free diet is not the easiest at restaurants cause of the fryer, so it's usually made best at home...that's just what I did. The chicken was extra crispy, moist and packed tons of flavor with a little heat from the cayenne pepper in the dredge. I couldn’t get a photo in time before I ate half the skin off the one piece lol! Plus, the chicken was made in the air fryer, which made clean up a breeze and my kitchen not a mess! Whether you're gluten free or not, this Fried Chicken will have you drooling for gluten free biscuits as Big Momma would say.
