Southern Sunday Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

Fried chicken on Sunday is a long standing tradition in the South and brings back fond memories of all the Sundays when I was growing up when we would go to Granny's house after church and she would always have....fried chicken! This is a delicious dish from my Best of Country Cooking Cookbook collection with good Southern flavor, but a little healthier than the meals I remember. I don't think I've ever actually made this on Sunday, but it's good whenever I do! I keep the original name because it's easy to remember and stands out among my MANY chicken recipes.
