How Do You Make a Home Version of Kentucky Fried Chicken in a Pressure Cooker?

Use only a pressure fryer or a standard deep fryer to make fried chicken at home, notes Using a pressure fryer, make a recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken by pouring 5 to 6 cups of non-hydrogenated Crisco or peanut oil into the pressure cooker, heating the oil to 360 degrees Fahrenheit.

Use a small bowl, and beat two eggs, 1 1/2 cups milk and 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce together. Mix in 1 teaspoon of Knorr chicken bouillon. Add 1/2 tablespoon of parsley, reserve the second half, and stir in 1 tablespoon of Wondra flour. Put 2 large garlic cloves through a garlic press, and mix them into the egg batter.

Use another bowl for the dry ingredients, mixing 1 cup of flour and 3/4 cup of breadcrumbs with 1 teaspoon of black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt, garlic powder and paprika. Mix in 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder, 1/3 teaspoon of ground sage and the remaining parsley. Mix these ingredients with a fork to blend well.

Make a separate bowl for pre-dipping with 1/2 cup of flour. Roll each piece of chicken in plain flour, then the milk mixture and last in the seasoned flour mixture until well coated. Lower the larger chicken pieces into the oil first, gently. Without overcrowding, fry each chicken piece until it appears golden.

Place the lid on the pressure fryer, and lock it before the chicken fully turns golden, about three minutes. The gauge should indicate a pressure of 5 to 6 pounds; once it does, begin timing to seven minutes, and remove the chicken pieces to paper towels to drain. Be sure the temperature comes back up before putting any uncooked chicken pieces into the oil. Adjust the cooking time accordingly.
