DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all the marinade ingredients to make the marinade.
  • Trim any excess fat and skin from the chicken pieces and marinate them for a couple of hours. (I used 2 hours).
  • Mix the milk with the egg in a bowl.
  • Combine the other dry ingredients in another bowl.
  • Drain the marinated chicken on paper towels.
  • Dip each chicken piece in the egg and milk, and then coat it in the dry flour mixture.
  • Dip into the egg and milk mixture again then back in the flour. Make sure every piece is well coated.
  • Preheat the shortening in a deep fryer to 350 degrees F.
  • Stack the chicken on a plate until each piece is coated.
  • Drop the chicken pieces into the hot shortening, one at a time with tongs being careful not to splash any of the hot oil to avoid burns. Oven mits are a good idea.
  • Fry 4 pieces of chicken at a time until golden brown.
  • This will take 12 to 15 minutes. Stir the chicken halfway through the cooking time for an even finish.
  • Drain the chicken pieces on wire racks for 5 minutes and serve hot.
