Southern style fried chicken with spring onion and black pepper mayonnaise – Chicken

BBQ Recipes, Chicken

Everyone loves fried chicken and this recipe packs a real punch! We’ve used the Ziegler & Brown Triple Grill with the optional trivet and wok to get this chicken super crispy.

It’s also a good idea to use a cooking thermometer to ensure the oil is super hot.
