At Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc restaurant in the Napa Valley town of Yountville, hungry patrons patiently stand in line for a taste of the kitchen’s legendary fried chicken. Our kit allows you to exactly duplicate Ad Hoc's recipe, which calls for brining, then double-battering, the chicken pieces. The brine, seasoned with fresh herbs and lemon, adds delicate flavor while keeping the meat tender and juicy. Before frying, the chicken is twice-dredged in a savory coating spiced with garlic, paprika and cayenne pepper. The resulting crust is crispy, golden and crackling with flavor—a delectable counterpoint to the succulent meat within.
