The rich, salty taste of caviar pairs great with a wide variety of other ingredients to create the perfect meal. Whether you want a new dinner idea for your family or are planning an extravagant evening party, you can add caviar to your list of servings for an unforgettable menu option.
A rare yet delicious combination you can bring to the table is caviar and fried chicken. The saltiness from the caviar and the crunchy texture of the chicken are great choices to serve at your next function. To try these fried chicken and caviar recipes, we invite you to follow the ingredients, careful steps and serving sizes below.
Easy-to-Follow Fried Chicken and Caviar Recipes
You can make fried chicken from scratch and add caviar as a topping, side dish or appetizer by following a few simple steps. If this is your first time creating your own chicken meal, you can make the experience an exciting journey as you experiment with flavors and find the perfect combination of salty freshness and juicy meats. You can even make this meal a tradition in your household or workplace for upcoming elegant events in the years to come.
These recipes have made their way across social media, with influencers testing mouthwatering combinations of fried chicken and caviar to share with their followers. You can easily take part in this new delicious craze with two different recipe options.
For your fried chicken and caviar creation, you can choose between chicken strips or drumsticks for your main course. Strips are easier to cut into smaller pieces if you think your event will use fancy cutlery. Chicken drumsticks are better for handheld eating and are best suited for casual dining with friends and family.
Depending on the dinner or event you plan to host, you can choose the type of chicken that best fits the environment. Each has its own preparation methods and recipes to follow, so make sure to choose one that matches your plans perfectly.
Preparing the caviar is the easiest part of the entire recipe, but it still packs lots of flavor in only a few bites. You can enhance your fried chicken with extra texture and flavor or add caviar to the side for aesthetic purposes that will have your guests taking pictures for social media all evening long.
Glance through these two recipes to create the perfect meal for your next planned event.
1. Fried Chicken Strips With a Side of Caviar
To cook a delicious fried chicken strip meal with caviar for your family, guests or coworkers, you can follow this recipe's steps below to start from scratch.
The first step is to grab a large bowl and combine 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika, onion powder and garlic powder, 300 milliliters of buttermilk, ½ teaspoon of fine salt and 1 grated lemon zest in a large bowl. These ingredients will create a wet coating for the chicken strips.
In a separate large bowl, stir together 5 teaspoons of smoked paprika and onion powder, 2 teaspoons of fine sea salt, garlic powder and mustard powder, 1 teaspoon of ground white pepper and dried thyme, ½ teaspoon of ground cloves and 7 ounces of plain flour. This mixture will be your chicken's dry coating.
You can cook as many chicken strips as you want using this recipe. Plan to serve at least one to two pieces per guest and use those numbers to help cook a delicious meal for your event or dinner.
Take a chicken strip and dip it thoroughly in the wet coating before placing it in the bowl of dry coating ingredients. Repeat this step multiple times until the spiced flour coats the entire piece of chicken. Do this for each strip you plan to serve.
The final step is to deep-fry the chicken strips in oil that is 360 degrees Fahrenheit for about eight minutes or until a golden brown hue. Once they are ready to serve, complement your delicious chicken with a side of mild and buttery-flavored Kaluga caviar for all your guests to enjoy. Each plate can come with 3.5 ounces of Kaluga and one to two chicken strips for an unforgettably delectable meal.
Top off this delicious meal with a wine of your choice. White wine pairs well with dry, crispy chicken, or you can take it a step further by filling each guest's glass with elegant chardonnay or champagne.Shop Kaluga Hybrid Reserve Caviar
2. Fried Chicken Drumsticks With a Caviar Topping
This following recipe is the perfect meal for a get-together with family and friends to celebrate a special occasion in style. The serving size feeds between four and eight people, so you can double or triple the recipe depending on how many people you plan to invite to your dinner.
The first step to creating fried chicken drumsticks from scratch is to combine 2 cups of plain yogurt, 1 cup of milk, 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of pepper in a large bowl. Take 16 chicken drumsticks and coat them in the mixture until completely covered. Keep the drumsticks in the mix and refrigerate for three hours or up to a full day.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and lather two baking sheets in olive oil.
In a separate, smaller dish, combine 2 cups of whole wheat bread crumbs, 2 teaspoons of paprika, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of pepper. Lather each drumstick in this mixture, one at a time, and lay them on the backing sheets.
Place the meat in the oven for 20 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 20 minutes. The skin should be a crispy, golden brown.
Finish with a dollop of sour cream on each piece of fried chicken, and scoop a spoonful of bold Royal Ossetra caviar onto the whipped cream. In the first bite of chicken, your guests can enjoy delicious flavors and a wide variety of textures.
Red wine is an excellent dry drink choice to pair with the crispy texture of fried chicken and the rich taste of Ossetra caviar. The blend of flavors you create with this meal will be one for the books with your family, friends or guests.Shop Royal Ossetra Caviar
