Give chicken an Indian-inspired flavor with Fried Chicken Masala. A two-hour marinade in sour cream, milk & garam masala makes this chicken masala unique.
What You Need
1 cup BREAKSTONE’S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
1/4 cup milk
5 tsp. garam masala, divided
1 broiler-fryer chicken (2-1/2 lb. to 3-1/2 lb.), cut into pieces
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp. salt
3 cups oil
Mix sour cream, milk and 2 tsp. garam masala; spoon over chicken in shallow dish. Turn to evenly coat chicken. Refrigerate 2 hours to marinate, turning chicken after 1 hour. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.
Mix flour, cornstarch, salt and remaining garam masala in separate shallow dish. Add chicken; turn to evenly coat both sides of each piece.
Heat oil in large skillet to 350°F. Add half the chicken; cook 15 to 20 min. or until chicken is golden brown and done (165ºF). Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining chicken.
