Gluten Free Fried ChickenBuckwheat is gluten free and it is good for you. I love cooking with buckwheat. The only place I have found it is Whole Foods and a health food store.


Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 4 or 5 servings


  • 1 frying size chicken, cut in sections
  • 1/2 cup Crisco vegetable shortening
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour


  1. Heat oil to 360 degrees F.
  2. Put buckwheat flour in container with a lid.
  3. Add salt and pepper and shake to blend.
  4. Add a few pieces of chicken at the time and shake well to coat each piece.
  5. Place each piece of chicken in the hot grease.
  6. Cover and fry for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Remove lid. Turn chicken over.
  8. Continue to fry 20-25 minutes uncovered until it is brown. It helps to have a splatter screen to put over the frying pan when frying without the lid.
  9. Remove chicken and place on paper towels to drain.
  10. It will be crisp and tender. Enjoy!

Thanks for this - definitely inspired to try for myself, especially now that KFC in the UK are trialling Halal, which is not my thing.
