Kentucky Deep Fryer Fried Chicken Recipe

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by petlover

Adapted from a recipe found on the internet and made in my vintage sunbeam fryer/cooker. This is awesome! For the chicken pieces, make sure that they are not too big: whole drumstick, whole thigh, but the breast part should be chopped into two. Its also helpful to use the fryer cover-it helps the meat cook through properly.

I made this over this past weekend and it really turned out well. I would have liked it a little saltier and the cooking time was a little off, but these things are easily corrected. Thank you for a very tasty recipe.
