Southern Fried chicken

Priscilla Wooten


This is the way that I have been doing homemade fried chicken for years. It does have a slight sweet taste to it, but it is oh so moist yet crispy on the outside. I hope that you enjoy it.

1 gal
sweet tea to soak chicken in over night in a covered dish.
8 slice
should be pieces of mixed chicken. 2 of each(breast, wing, leg and thigh)
3 large
eggs beaten
1/4 c
whole milk
2 c
white flour (sifted)
1 tsp
salt and pepper each


1Soak chicken overnight in a covered casserole dish(or larger to make sure all chicken is fully covered) in sweet tea. If you want to buy a gallon already made, I find that Milos sweet tea tastes as close to homemade as you can get from a store(or buy a gallon from chick fil a)
2When you get ready to fry your chicken, beat your eggs and then add milk to them and mix together real good.
3Put your 2 cups of flour onto a large plate and add your salt/pepper to it for seasoning. If you want to add other seasonings feel free to do so. All according to what you personally like.
4Put chicken in your egg/milk dredge and then dip it into the flour. Make sure you get a good coating of flour onto it.
5Use a large frying pan with a non stick surface. I personally just use vegetable oil, but use whatever oil that you prefer for frying the chicken.
6fry until brown on both sides, and enjoy it.
