This is my family's favorite fried chicken! I have been using this recipe for years now and it's great hot or cold. This is a little on the salty side, but it's perfect for us. If you like less salt, cut back on the amount of salt during the soaking time.
Great with baked beans and a potato salad.
This is the easiest, most delicious fried chicken I've ever tasted. It is so tender, full of flavor, and it's very simple to prepare! See if you can eat this fried chicken without first peeling off and eating the crunchy skin! This is best served with Frances's Old Fashioned Collard Greens.
Thanks Paula Deen (FoodTV) for the best fried chicken I have ever made! It has a nice, savory flavor and a coating that has just the right amount of crispiness. It was a good thing I had an extra cut-up chicken in the refrigerator because my family was begging for it again the next day. Although it calls for what seems like a lot of hot pepper sauce, it isn't any spicier than Jack-In-the Box's Spicy Crispy Chicken--you can take it!! FYI I made this using 10 pounds of wings--enough of the hot sauce/egg mixture to cover, but you will need to double flour mixture if you want to do this much. I'm not saying it tastes like KFC--only that you won't be doing business with them anymore.
This is the best fried chicken! I make this all the time now. My neighbor came for dinner and now asks that I fry his chicken up for him when he's got the cravin. This is one of my more well known things I cook. I hope you enjoy. Prep time does not include the time for seasoning.
Fried chicken at its best. The coating on this is so crispy and delicious you will never fry chicken any other way again. Edited to add: If you have the time, try soaking your chicken in the buttermilk all day or even over night. This makes for some very moist chicken.
I am a retired caterer. I have used this recipe for many years. Everyone I have served it too seems to just love it and always come back for seconds. Its one of the simplest and easiest fried chicken recipes you will ever prepare. The Ritz cracker crumbs were used many years ago as a last minute substitute for saltines. I think this was a one of my best substitutes ever. Needless to say I never used saltines again. I hope you enjoy!
This was a weekly article in our local newspaper by our food editor. I have not made them yet but kept the recipe as they sounded good and I wanted to share them here! I will make soon and review myself!!
