    I modified my mothers recipe which she used for years. It is not as greasy as some of the fast food chicken places.

      Oh Jim~this is delicious. It's New Year's Day here on the farm, and we wanted.....well something to that was just fun to eat as a family and would bring us good cheer and good luck. Yesterday I had purchased a large amount of chicken drumsticks, and these were perfect. Fat and big and budding with tender meat, I had the uncontrollable urge to just make "fried" chicken. I didn't however have self rising flour, but added 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder right in with the flour. Other then that, this guided us to comfort and soul reaching for this first day of the New Year. Unbelievably great! Thank you so much, Jim! Happy gardening in 2008! :D

      Excellent! I made this a little different, meaning I am on a low fat diet, so I boil my chicken first, then batter & fry it, turned out great, I will make it again for sure
