8 cups vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
8 pieces airline chicken breast
1/2 cup vegetable oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees F. Preheat the oil in the deep fryer to 400 degrees F.
For the flour: In a bowl, mix the four, salt and Cajun seasoning.
For the chicken: Toss the chicken with 1/2 cup of the oil, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper, and place on parchment paper. Cook slowly in the oven until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and cool.
Once cooled, toss the cooked chicken with the seasoned flour and flash fry in the deep fryer. Cook until the skin is crisp, 4 minutes. Remove and allow excess oil to drain over paper towels.
Finally re-season with salt and pepper, and serve.
Airline chicken breasts are boneless, skin-on cuts still attached to the wing up to the first joint.
