Fried Chicken

"I think this tender, juicy chicken tastes similar to KFC. You will have enough of the flavorful coating to make several batches; keep in an airtight container. Adapted from Taste of Home, original submitted by Eileen Frank."

    The pic had me at first glance. The flavor confirmed my thoughts! Delicious chicken, and so tender and juicy. The coating can't be beat!

    Fantastic!! I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed this recipe. My husband had no idea when the first thing he asked was "did you find a copycat recipe for KFC chicken?" It was so flavorful and I LOVED the fact that it only fries for a bit in the oil and bakes the remainder of the time. Mine was finished perfectly after baking 50 minutes. Lots of juice and full of taste and hardly any grease. I did remove the skin from the chicken pieces to save on the fat content but that did not make one difference with the coating as it all stayed on. I would suggest lightly spraying the baking pan as it was hard to remove the legs and wings from the pan. I'll be making this dish so often from now on. Made for the Potluck Game in Cooking Games with Friends forum!!

    Delicious! My son is a picky eater and KFC chicken was one of the few things he would really enjoy. As a family we have boycotted KFC for a few years now and its been hard to find a good copycat recipe. I was going to try another one tonight, till I came across your recipe on this website. I just got done frying the first batch and couldn't wait to post a response, it is the closest any recipe has ever came! I can't wait till he comes home and tries it! Thank you so much for a delicious recipe.
