If you live in the South, it’s pretty much a given that you appreciate fried food – I know I do… and like any good Southern girl, I love fried chicken. This past weekend I decided to try my hand at this homemade recipe. It is so much easier than you’d imagine! Just make sure you use something with a lid (think dutch oven or deep fryer…) do not, know matter how great of a cook you think you are, try to use anything more shallow, you might just burn your pretty little face off! Being the health-nut I am, I used a healthier oil not realizing the smoking heat was a lot lower… sooo the entire house was slowly filled with smoke! It was still delicious & we enjoyed a nice evening on the patio eating it outside. The End.
