    kzbhansen's Note:

    This is the best fried chicken! I make this all the time now. My neighbor came for dinner and now asks that I fry his chicken up for him when he's got the cravin. This is one of my more well known things I cook. I hope you enjoy. Prep time does not include the time for seasoning.

      Karen.... I don't know what happened to my review, I reviewed it the first time I made this fantastic recipe,, It's a 10 star for sure.. Making it again today , checked the recipe and noticed my review was not shown. This recipe needs no alterations, it's perfect.

      Delicious chicken! It would be helpful for others if you put the amounts of ingredients that you used. The guessing, when making for the first time is frustrating!
