Sous Vide Fried Chicken

Sous Vide is the best way to make fried chicken. It was frustrating to fry chicken for what I thought was a long time, but only to find it was completely pink inside. Even though it seems to take quite some time to sous vide, it’s mostly inactive time. I also found today that I can remote control my Sous Vide Circulator! When the cooking cycle completes, chicken was done with tender and juicy inside. The frying time is only to cook the coating and make it as crispy as I would like. Overall, I felt it takes less time for me to make the dish, and with perfect outcome every time!
