David's Southern Fried Chicken
Buy a whole fryer chicken about $6 and cut it up into 8 pieces, easy as pie. If anyone wants me to post how to butcher a chicken I'll be more than happy to do so.
Experiment with different seasonings or using buttermilk.
MAKE SURE you season not only the chicken but the egg wash and the flour as well otherwise it will be bland once cooked.

How much seasoning? Well that depends as I don't measure any of this. I sprinkle a bit of each that I'm using on both sides of the chicken, add some of each in the egg wash and to the flour. If you don't do this your finished chicken will be very bland.
Now you can place in a large bowl your egg wash and chicken and mix until all chicken is coated with the wash.
I vary fry time depending on how large the pieces of chicken are but usually no less than 12 minutes and not more than 15 at 300.
