Fried Chicken Friday ( sous vide twist )

I have been really loving the sous vide. Great addition to The BGE but opens up a lot of options. I stumbled across the mention of Sousvide fried chicken and thought it would be a great thing, as most of my attempts at it have been fails. Either the chicken is under cooked or the coating is over cooked. This was a home run. Well cooked juicy chicken with a nice thin crispy coating. Definitely be added to the rotation

    Looks good! What was the water temp and how long in the water bath? Did this approximate KFC chicken from the old days? I liked it then. 

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I went with 4 hours at 165. They were all big drums. I also had a bag full of Yukon gold potatoes that I turned into “Jo Jos” . That time and temp seemed to render out just the right amount of fat to keep them juicy but not greasy. I used tempura and egg wash so the coating was crispy but thin not as thick as KFC. I went light on seasoning so I need to kick that up a little next time.
