My family loves good fried chicken and I've been making this recipe for years. My grandmother first told me how to do this when I was just a young bride, trying to learn to cook. This recipe makes crispy fried chicken that comes out golden and flavorful. My family loves this chicken and it's a big hit at potlucks and picnics served with potato or macaroni salad. I hope you enjoy this chicken as much as we have.

This chicken is going to be a hit at your next picnic or family reunion! The flavors in the breading blended together just perfect.

We did remove the skin before soaking and battering. This chicken is delicious! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
