Sunday Supper "Fried Chicken"

I have had on my mind for the longest time that I would fry some chicken. Mom used to fry chicken and rarely (prove me wrong) do you hear of people frying their own chicken. Well I must say that I have forgotten what fresh chicken tastes like. I hope these photos take you back to a time when mom was frying chicken. Scroll to the bottom for the recipe Y'all.

This fried chicken recipe was compliments of Paula Deen and I must say it is a do over!

Recipe Tip: When you take the chicken parts out of the oil, put them on a cooling rack for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a warm oven while the rest of the chicken cooks.

Everything "Mise en Place" for this recipe!

  1. Hey man my bride still fry's chicken 4-5 times a year. It is the choice of myself and shaggy for our b-days.

    Hope yours came out as ood as hers.


  2. Photos are great. I want to print them out and eat them. It's still grilling season so I'm gonna file this away for late fall.

    K - Where you live are you sure it was chicken and not an armadillo?

  3. Glad to hear you both have homemade fried chicken happening in your life! It's just one of those timeless meals!

    E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
