How To Make Outback Steakhouse Bloomin Fried Chicken At Home

Bloomin Fried Chicken

Do you love the famous Bloomin’ Onion from Outback? If yes, then Outback has come up with a new bloomin’ dish for all the chicken lovers called the Outback Steakhouse Bloomin fried chicken. It has got its name because it is covered in the same breading as the bloomin onion. Today, I’ll be telling you how you can make this bloomin’ fried chicken at your home.

The taste of this bloomin’ fried chicken is almost similar to bloomin’ onion. The only difference is that when you bite into it, instead of a sweet onion, you’ll find a tender and pounded chicken breast. 

The seasoned flour is a mixture of flour, cornstarch, and baking soda. This makes the chicken flaky and crispy when deep-fried. The spices add a strong and warm flavor to the crispy outer layer. The chicken is also egg-washed in an egg and buttermilk mixture.

The buttermilk helps the flour stick and also gives it a slight tart taste and keeps the chicken juicy. The Bloomin fried chicken was re-continued at the Outback Steakhouse. But I advise you to learn the recipe in case they discontinue it again and you crave it after.
