"HEY Y'ALL Fried Chicken"

Jenny Moretz


Adopted this recipe from Paula Deen's recipe book. I made some substitutions, such as using buttermilk instead of water...marinating the chicken for at least 4 hours prior to frying and I like to use a THICK brown paper bag to put my flour mix and chicken in!!! Just an OLD Southern thang!!

How to Make "HEY Y'ALL Fried Chicken"


  1. In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the milk.
  2. Add enough hot sauce to turn milk to a bright orange color.
  3. Marinate chicken in an airtight container/bag for at least 4 hours.
  4. In another bowl, combine the flour and pepper.
  5. Remove chicken from marinate and season the chicken with the house seasoning.
  6. Then coat well in the flour mixture by adding flour mixture to a medium sized thick brown paper bag...add chicken, a couple of pieces at a time and shake-shake-shake- your chicken!!!
  7. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.
  8. Fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer then white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes.
