This is the traditional southern fried chicken. I really love this, but only once a month. (We really try to watch the fried foods) The trick to this chicken is to have a good deep fryer, and not overcrowd it when frying up the chicken, They'll cook more thoroughly, and be crisper, not soggy. Enjoy my friends!

Traditional Fried Chicken
Thumb of 2010-11-02/Lynxx/501c92
Ingredients:

2 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp butter or margarine, melted
2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp fine pickling salt (this salt is one of the finest in thickness, really blends well)
1 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper, grated
1 (2 1/2 to 3 lb) broiler-fryer, cut up. Rinsed, and patted dry
Extra pepper
All purpose flour
Canola oil

Combine the first 6 ingredients, mix well. Place chicken pieces in a shallow baking pan, pour the milk mixture over them. Refrigerate about an hour. (This pulls out blood, and infuses the flavors of the spices and milk, helps to tenderize, don't skip this step)
Begin heating the deep fryer to 350 degrees.
Remove chicken from the milk mixture. Sprinkle with additional pepper. and dredge in flour. Drop pieces in, a few at a time, not overcrowding. Cook for 18-25 minutes. Check before eating by taking out one of the thicker pieces and poking with skewer, if liquid at bone comes out clear, it's done. Serve NOW :) Yummy!

Chris, it's a good generic brand that I've had so long, I don't know who made it. It has no id on it. But it sure works well :) I like that it has a plastic lid to cover when not using. It keep the interior clean and dust free, and I can store the special draining spatula in the cavity too.

I had one years ago but it's long gone. I'll have to keep my eye out for another. Smiling
