    Melvin'sWifey's Note:

    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.

      You sure were right about the delicious skin. It was really tasty and crunchy, and the chicken turned out nice and moist on the inside. I fried the chicken in batches, and after I had finished the first one my husband grabbed a piece, ate it, and said it was terrific; the only problem was keeping him from taking any more chicken until it I had fried it all. This is a great recipe, MW. Thanks for sharing!
