My cousin Maxine is a marvelous cook. I have never had a meal at her house I didn't love.

Maxine taught me how to make Southern Fried Chicken, as my Grandmother and Mother did not make Fried Chicken as we do here in America. It's still one of my favorite dishes.

My son loves Chicken Salad and this is his favorite.
