When I was growing up, it seemed Sundays were fried chicken day! Now, I make it a bit different than my ma, DEEP FRIED! Oh yeah! I fried chicken for over 2 hours this morning and filled three huge bowls. This is all that's left after everyone dug in! LOL -- Well I think there will still be plenty for tomorrow after church though. ;o)
I know everyone has their special way of cooking chicken, but here's mine....
The secret is Deep Fried and an Iron Skillet. I have a deep iron skillet and I fill it about and inch or so from the top with cooking oil. Get it nice 'n hot now!
Mix up a couple eggs and some milk in one bowl.... in another bowl I toss in flour, some bread crumbs, and lots of spices like garlic, onion, salt, pepper, Mrs. Dash if I have it around.... etc. I don't measure too many things, so like I said, toss it in! LOL
Dip your chicken in the egg/milk mixture, then in the flour -- now dip back in the egg/milk and flour again. Yep, double dippin'! Carefully put chicken in the hot oil, it'll sink to the bottom. As it cooks and gets done, it starts floating a bit. With the deep oil, you don't always have to turn it, but yes, occasionally you do.
When it's done to perfection, I dip out the pieces with a slotted spoon and let that grease drain off. Gather up all those yummy crunchy bits still floating around too! Repeat with more chicken! Enjoy!
