Thanksgiving Crispy Fried Chipotle Corn

Lot’s of folks will be pulling out that deep fat turkey fryer this week, or heading to a big box home improvement store in search of a big turkey fryer.

It that’s you, here’s a great Baby Boomer Bakes side dish recipe. Thanksgiving Crispy Fried Chipotle Corn is easy to prepare and it’s wonderful as a compliment to fried turkey.

Note: You can use the deep fat fryer that you’re using for the bird, although in the following recipe I’ve included methods of frying in a normal size deep fat fryer or a deep frying skillet.

I hope you enjoy Baby Boomer Bakes recipe for Thanksgiving Crispy Fried Chipotle Corn.

Thanksgiving Crispy Fried Chipotle Corn


Yield: 4 servings (8 if ears are cut in half)

1-quart peanut oil

1 large egg

1 tbsp water

1 cup plain panko bread crumbs

1 tbsp chipotle chili powder

1/2 cup self-rising flour

4 ears fresh corn, cut in half and cooked (microwave, grill or boil/steam)

Preheat peanut oil in deep fat fryer or deep frying skillet to 375 degrees.

Whisk together egg and water on dinner plate (or other shallow container); set aside.

Combine panko crumbs and chipotle chili powder (on a dinner plate or other shallow container); set aside.

Place flour on a dinner plate or other shallow container; set aside.

Dredge corn pieces (one at a time) in flour, then egg; and finally in panko mixture using hands to press crumbs onto corn evenly. Set aside until ready to deep fat fry.

Deep fat fry corn pieces at 375-degrees for 1-1/2 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove corn from oil and drain on paper towels. Serve warm or at room temperature.
