How to Make Seventh Heaven Fried Chicken


  • 1Brine the chicken in sweet tea for a day.
  • 2Mix salt, pepper, cornmeal, and flour in a shallow bowl. Drench the chicken in buttermilk before dredging it in the dry mixture.
  • 3Lard 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.
