How to Make Seventh Heaven Fried Chicken


  1. Brine the chicken in sweet tea for a day.
  2. Mix salt, pepper, cornmeal, and flour in a shallow bowl. Drench the chicken in buttermilk before dredging it in the dry mixture.
  3. Lard is the right temperature if the chicken only bubbles. After a few minutes turn the chicken, and then turn it again. When it's the color of straw put a lid on it, turn again after a few minutes, cover again, and turn again. Adjust the temperature as needed to keep the chicken at a bubble.

    The chicken is done when it stops bubbling.
  4. Serve with cream gravy, honey mustard, hot sauce and honey, or straight.
