Moist & Tender Fried Chicken
He told me about this chicken recipe. He said this technique makes the chicken very moist and tender inside. I'm thinking it's because of rubbing each piece with olive oil.
I assured him that I would try it and I'm so glad I did because it's a keeper. Just wish I could remember his name.

USE YOUR OWN JUDGEMENT FOR THE AMOUNTS
1Cut individual pieces if using a whole chicken. Wash and clean really well then pat dry with a paper towel.
2Generously rub each piece with olive oil. Season with your choice of seasonings (such as salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, etc). Place into a ziplock bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
