Classic Southern Fried Chicken
Super crunchy, classic Southern fried chicken with a slightly salty, flavorful bite. The meat is tender and juicy, and the exterior is light and crispy. Take your time with this… let the soak happen overnight and cook in batches. Cook extra because who doesn't love cold fried chicken? Serve with mashed potatoes and coleslaw with soft rolls to create that perfect bite.
Small to medium pieces work best for frying because they cook evenly. If using larger bone-in chicken breasts, cut them in half to ease the process.
You can use a large zip-top bag to coat chicken instead of a bowl, if preferred.
