I don't cook fried foods but I love southern fried chicken.  

Here is a recipe from Paula Deen that is very similar to what my grandmother used to make (minus the hot pepper sauce).  The key is deep fat frying. 

Ingredients

House Seasoning:

  • 1 cup salt
  • 1/4 cup black pepper
  • 1/4 cup garlic powder

Southern Fried Chicken:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup hot red pepper sauce
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • House Seasoning
  • 2 1/2-pound chicken, cut into pieces
  • Oil, for frying, preferably peanut oil

Directions

To make the House Seasoning, mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange. In another bowl, combine the flour and pepper. Season the chicken with the House Seasoning. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour mixture.

Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.

Fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer than white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes.

I don't make deep fried chicken at home ... it's too greasy. Once in a great while I'll make oven fried chicken. The only thing that I have deep fried recently were eggrolls and they were small & tight ... restaurant style.

I saw this one while searching for one last night.  I think I ended up using one from AllRecipes.com.  It was good, but I felt there was room for improvement.  We rendered our own lard over the last few days and HAD to have something fried in it!

My grandmother used lard as well and she always used a thermometer to make sure that it was at the right temp and she made sure the chicken was submergerd instead of having to turn it.

I don't make fried chicken but my husband does. He uses Paula Deen's recipe and deep fries in peanut oil. The hot sauce gives it a bit of heat that is just perfect!
