Mom's Sticky Chicken From 1972
My Mom always served this cold at our family picnics, but misplaced the recipe for over 40 years. She recently found it and shared it with me! Finally! This was my favorite food as a kid, and I have searched every recipe site, but haven't found it! So I am posting it here for YOU! I made this for a potluck thinking I would serve it cold as my childhood memories remember, but it was SOOOO good hot that I stuck it in my slow cooker to keep it warm throughout the potluck! Everyone asked for the recipe! It was a HIT! You can keep in a slow cooker on Warm/Low for 3 to 4 hours!

When Frying Chicken, NEVER flip or turn the chicken until the crust looks perfect, no matter how tempted you are. When the crust looks like it is done, then flip/turn to continue frying the chicken. Don't flip it until it's time!
