    cookie_mum's Note:

    Southern Maryland style Fried Chicken. I've used John Shields recipe for fried chicken for "Special Occasions" for many years now. The recipe requires marinating, then flouring and finally frying. I usually cook for a family of ten so this is a large recipe for a crowd.

    Serves: 10-12

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      1.Wash and pat your chicken dry
    2. 2
      2.Combine your spices( except the pepper corns), season and Rub most of it on the chicken. I usually set aside 3-4 Tablespoons to go into the flour before I season the chicken.
    3. 3
      3.Place the chicken in a large bowl if you haven't already and cover with buttermilk and drop in your garlic, pepper corns and your hot sauce if you're using it.
    4. 4
      4. Cover and place in the frig. for 1-2 hours or overnight is best.
    5. 5
      5. When the chicken is finished marinating. Get your flour and breadcrumbs mixed with some of the reserved seasoning -- taste for saltiness. If you want add just another teaspoon of salt.
    6. 6
      6. Heat up you oil to 375 degrees -- you'll know it's there when an old piece of bread gets crisp within seconds of hitting the oil.
    7. 7
      7. Begin Taking your chicken from the marinade, letting the most of it run off and begin dropping the chicken into the flour mixture.I use a large paper bag for this most of the time. Set aside on a plate until your oil is ready. once it's ready.
    8. 8
      8.Get out your tongs and start placing the biggest pieces first and let them fry up to an amber brown.
    9. 9
      9. This recipe has a lot of spices in it and it cooks up darker than other recipes -- fast. so keep your oil at a steady temperature. If you notice the chicken getting dark too fast lower the temperature -- wait a few and start again.
