Rate & Comment


  • Family-size pack fried chicken, preferably from Popeye's

  • 1 quart vegetable oil


  1. Refrigerate fried chicken overnight. The next day, heat oil in a large dutch oven, wok, or chicken fryer to 350°F. Carefully add half the chicken, or as much as can comfortably fit in a single layer. Cook, turning frequently until re-crisped and heated through. Transfer to a large plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining chicken. Serve immediately.
