    QueenJellyBean's Note:

    This recipe is off a recipe card I got at a grocery store. It says that the recipe is from Mississippi Memories by Rick Rodgers, Delta Queen Steamboat Company. This recipe recaptures the sumptuous, southern eating traditions found on grand riverboats. This is southern fried chicken...kicked up a notch! Prep time does not include the chicken soaking time.

      Before continuing,I'm pleased to be the first one to rate this recipe.:) I made this on 2/7/10 for the " Comfort Food Event " in the Food Photo Forum. Except for using chicken legs and thighs, the recipe was made as it was written.After preparing and tasting the chicken my SO seemed to enjoy it,but I thought it could be a bit more spiceier.As for the gravy, I did need to add some salt & pepper to give it a bit more flavor.Thanks for posting and," Keep Smiling :) "
