Fried Chicken for the masses

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

We already do a lot of catering and recently have had interest from customers wanting us to cater onsite with a menu consisting of Fried Chicken.  What is the best way to fry chicken for 100+ people onsite?  We are in the process of re-configuring our catering trailer.  Is there a better way than a couple of propane deep fryers?

Looks like this one got by us....

Fried up pieces or whole or half chickens?

If they're insisting on deep fried rather than roasted etc, then commercial deep fryers are prob what Id use too.

With 2 fryers, prob take you several batches though. Only other way I might do it is with 30 qt gas turkey fryers.

You can experiment with different oils that way too.

That is a bunch of chicken to cook, at least 200 pieces.  I work for a place that often buys 1000 pieces of fried chicken a day. We do cook but can't do that.  We get from a food lion grocery store.  It may be worth approaching a store that fries in house and asking if they would cook your chicken.  If they will you can pack it hot  in coolers and it will hold for a couple hours.
