How to Make Deep Fried Beer Chicken

  • At least 4 hours before cooking (can be done night before), mix flour, margarine, egg and sufficient beer to make a thick paste.
  • Spread over chicken parts; cover and refrigerate.
  • Heat 2" to 3" oil in deep fryer to 365 degree C.
  • Fry chicken pieces, a few at a time, for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Be sure to move the pieces around in the oil so they do not stick, but turn them carefully so the coating does not break off.
  • Drain on paper towel before serving.
