    Chef Mommie's Note:

    When it comes to the title "Granny", I say it's got to be good. My Granny was an excellent cook. She made the best fried chicken without alot of nonsense ingredients. I say that it don't get no better than this!

      I have made this recipe in the past, but found that adding garlic onion powder, salt, and a little Tony Chachere's Seasoning really adds lots of flavor to this basic recipe... Marinading the chicken in buttermilk and Texas Pete or Tabasco is good too!

      Excellent, I like to use 1/2 butter or margarine with the oil.
