    ChamoritaMomma's Note:

    I was watching a show on FoodNetwork called "Cooking for Real". This was a recipe I followed. What a great way to prepare fried chicken, which is one of my most favorite foods.

    1. 1
      In a large bowl, whisk together cider and salt until salt dissolves. Add chicken pieces and enough water to completely submerge and cover the chicken. Let soak 1 hour in the refrigerator. Chicken should be completely submerged in brine.
    2. 2
      In a large pot, heat vegetable shortening until a deep-fry thermometer reaches 325 degrees. Line a sheet tray with a wire rack.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, cayenne and black pepper. In a paper bag, shake together flour and cornstarch. Drain chicken from brine and dip in batches first in egg mixture then in flour mixture to coat. Set on wire rack to let coating sit for 10 minutes. In 2 batches, fry chicken until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the piece. Remove from oil to drain on paper towel-lined plate.

      I made this recipe on Sunday. It was a bit too dark for me. Maybe next time I'll lower the temperature because I fried it at 350 instead of 325. It was still juicy. Juice was running out. I will make again because of the juiciness and the season going through the meat. I also added cayenne pepper to the egg mixture.

      I, too made this Sunny Anderson recipe. I thought that it didn't have enough of a "cidery" flavor. Also, the 1/2 cup salt in my opinion should have been kosher salt, though her recipe just said "salt". I'm looking forward to trying this again with a few modifications.
