I can remember when I was a kid watching my grandmother fry chicken. It seems like it took her all day to accomplish frying one bird. It does take a while but I think it's well worth it. The smoke is my addition.

How to Make Smokey Fried Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cut up chicken into 10 pieces (I guess you could by one already cut up but what fun is that)
  • 2Mix marinade spices and coat chicken in large bowl. Let chicken marinade in fridge for however long you want. I left it in for 8 hrs.
  • 3Smoke chicken for 1 hr. at 225 degrees. I used hickory, but any wood will do. My smoker is a Masterbuilt electric.
  • 4Let chicken cool to touch. Drench in milk and dredge in seasoned flour mixture. One drench and dredge is enough.
  • 5The next step is the most important. Grandma Howell always used cast iron skillets, and cooked in butter low and slow. I use Smart Balance, three or four tbs. add more if needed. Cook on medium low heat turning occasionally to get a crispy crust on all sides. This could take an hour or longer for the chicken to cook through.
