It’s summer and picnic time. What better food is there for a picnic than fried chicken? This recipe is a family recipe that I have used many times. It’s a simple and easy recipe for great fried chicken.
Southern Fried Chicken
1 cup milk
2 beaten large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. black pepp 2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
In a large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, garlic pepper, salt, paprika, and poultry seasoning.
In a separate bowl, mix beaten eggs with milk and set aside.
Place chicken pieces in the first bowl, then in the egg mixture, and again in the first bowl (flour mixture).
Fill up your deep fryer (deep cast iron skillet or Dutch oven) with peanut oil (or frying oil of your choice) and preheat to 350°F. Carefully add the piece of chicken to the deep fryer. Fry until golden brown, turning every few minutes. You will need to fry in batches, so you do not overcrowd the fryer.
Drain on paper towels. And serve it with hot sauce.
