      Excellent fried chicken and I did like any good Louisianian...I threw the bones out back to the alligators. Made for Ragin' Cajun Tag.

      Good chicken. I used all legs, so I was afraid to marinade overnight. They soaked for about 6 or 8 hours. They would have probably been fine going longer, they weren't real spicy. I am not the best chicken fryer, but these came out well. I served with my Creamy Potato Salad With Radishes, Lemon & Dill. Thanks!

      This was nicely spicy without being over the top hot. We really enjoyed it & I will be making it again. I used all drumsticks & marinated a full day. I elect to double bread the chicken and followed the directions for frying chicken shared by my mother-in-law simply because we like our fried chicken that way. I woudn't change a thing in the marinade. It really is flavorful! Thank you for sharing the recipe!
