I just made 40 pieces of this recipe the other day for a crowd of 20. I think it is a good solid basic fried chicken recipe (although if memory serves correct the chicken dinners at Knott's Berry Farm taste better). Maybe I just need more practice. The original recipe version that I have on a kitchen tile from the souvenir store directed cooks to refry the chicken for another 3 minutes 15 minutes prior to serving. You don't have this step listed and that's good because I probably wouldn't do that again. My batch seemed slightly overcooked and I think that is why. I will try this recipe again and use a thermometer to check for doneness. Thanks for posting!
