You've done it again Kittencal. This is the BEST fried chicken we have ever had, juicy, well seasoned. Fabulous!!!! I haven't found one of your recipes disappointing. Thanks a bunch!!!!
I've noticed a trend - anything recipe worth repeating has Kitten's name on it. I had saltines, but I also had some Ritz that my 18 month old had started to crush, so I used those instead. :) I used drumsticks; cook time was roughly 12 total minutes; 4 drumsticks per batch. It was great! The kids gobbled them up. I will have to make a double batch next time.
You did it once again!!! This recipe was AWESOME! The flavors were perfect and the chicken was so moist. Thanks for this recipe. Keep them coming.
