How to Cook Chicken with Crunchy Crust. Useful Recommendations and the Secret of Perfect Marinade


Chicken is the most popular meat. There are a few people, who do not like it. Poultry is yummy, cheap and nutritious. There are a lot of ways to cook it. You may boil it, bake with herbs or veggies, grill or even cook with oranges. Today we will share with you secrets of cooking perfect chicken with a crunchy crust.
1. Choose right chicken
If you want your meal to be yummy, you need to avoid frozen meat. Choose fresh one. For a small company (4-5 persons) you`ll need to buy middle-sized chicken.
2. Use the oven
Of course, you may cook this dish even on the frying pan. Still, if you bake it in the oven, it will be tastier and healthier.
3. Crockery choice
Tasty chicken may be cooked even in the classical baking form. However, I recommend you to use qualitative form, made of cast iron or ceramic. Glass or metal form isn`t suitable; if you use it, chicken will burn.
4. What to add?
To make that perfect crunchy crust, you`ll need to use additional ingredients. Find your secret ingredient and use it any time you want to treat your close people with something special.  I recommend you to try using baking powder. It will make your chicken more crunchy and dry. All you need is to add 1-2 tsp of baking powder into the bowl with marinade. You`ll love the result!
Finally, I want to share with you simple recipe for a delicious marinade.
