Hopalong Cassidy's Fried Chicken

I collect celebrity recipes, but this is one I had and didn't know it until today. This recipe from Hopalong Cassidy (actor William Boyd) was found in A Cowboy Christmas. He says, "This is a fine recipe that will be utterly ruined if you cook the chickens over too hot a flame."
