House Special Seasoning
Pure Kosher Sea Salt
Sourced Tellicherry Peppercorn Grinder
Raw Wildflower Honey
Our House Special Seasoning is what makes this recipe the ultimate fried chicken recipe. The three types of chile pepper add a little heat, the honey adds a little sweet, and the mushroom and cacao nibs add depth and umami. Unlike Colonel Sanders, our herbs and spices are no secret.
Recipe from the JSC Kitchen
In a small sauce pot, make a brine by bringing water, Kosher Sea Salt (1 cup), and sugar up to simmer, then whisk until completely dissolved. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.
Place the chicken parts in the cooled brine and allow to sit covered in the refrigerator overnight, no longer than 24 hours.
Remove the chicken parts from brine and discard the brine. In a nonreactive container, combine the buttermilk and the chicken and allow to sit for at least 4 hours.
Heat the oil in a skillet to 325°. Once at the right temperature, fry the chicken in batches until it's golden brown on all sides and until a thermometer inserted into the chicken reads 165°. Remove the chicken from the oil and drain on a paper towel.
