Naturally fried chicken is considered Southern crusine. Folks young and old enjoy good fried chicken...especially home cooked. My husband says I'm the champion fried chicken cooker. Don't know about that, but everyone who has ever tried mine really loves it, and wants to know how I get it so crispy. Hope my explanatin of how I cook fried chicken helps you develop the skills of preparing a genuine Southern tradition.
