I put the thighs in Pop's brine minus the brown sugar but added 1/2 cup of salt free cajun seasoning . 

In the brine 6 days . 

SV 154.5 for 3 hours . 

Pulled out of sv dried off . I used Louisianna chicken fry coating . Its a wet paste then dry mix  to cover the paste . 

Into deep fryer until I liked the color . 

These are so good . That cured chicken has me hooked . I only sv /  fried 2 as a test . The rest went on the weber . Should have fried them all . 

Best chicken I ever made in 6 days , 3 hours and 15 minutes . 


Fresh out of the bath 


Fresh out of the fryer ( forgot to get the dredge pic )


Kind of blurry , but was all I could do to stop eating long enough to take a picture . 


My son called it " What that chicken ever do to you  ? " chicken . 

Involved but worth it for me .

I've got some chicken legs in the freezer ready for sous vide.  I didn't brine them though, was going to do 155 for 3 hrs, then bread and deep fry.  Your's looks delicious!
