It's that time of the month! No, not THAT time, but time for the Crazy Cooking Challenge! When I saw that the challenge was going to be fried chicken, I knew exactly what blog to go to.
Deep South Dish. I knew Mary would have an amazing fried chicken (along with loads of other Southern favorites!) and I was right! Not only did she have a perfect fried chicken recipe, she also has included tips for beginners and how to get the perfect fried chicken. Go check out her post for the tips.
Now, I've done some frying in my life. My ravioli's and gyoza (potstickers) are about as far as I've gone though. But with Mary's awesome tips, I felt confident that I could fry me up some chicken! She brines her chicken first, overnight, but I was short on time. She also prefers to have it sit for a while after salt and peppering it. Like I said. . .short on time and all that. . .and fridge space.
However, my chicken still turned out nice and juicy. It was perfect.
