Tyler Florence's fried chicken


Well-known member
I was watching Food Network's Great American Food Truck Race and in the finale they stopped at Tyler's San Francisco restaurant. It looks like a really cool place. He is apparently famous for his fried chicken and it does indeed have a very different twist. He mentioned in passing that he has a "food lab" where he developed the recipe. The whole chicken is rubbed with a herb mixture and then baked at 200* for 2.5 hours. He describes this as getting the chicken 2/3 done. Then it is cut up, dipped in buttermilk and fried for only a few minutes. We're going to the beach in a week or so and I think we'll give it a spin.
