This recipe produced beautiful chicken! I really don’t fry food, but I hadn’t had home-made fried chicken in years, so I thought I’d give it a try. It was somewhat bland, but like other reviewers recommend, extra seasonings can be added. I would definitely increase the paprika and salt, add garlic powder and possibly cayenne pepper. I was trying to do too many things while the chicken was getting crispy and it ended up burning on one side. Oops! Since I overcooked it, it was a little dry, but my mistake can be easily remedied. My only other complaint was the smell that was leftover. Cooking the chicken didn’t exactly produce a bad smell, but the air ended up being thick with a grease-like odor that stayed until the next day. Like another reviewer, I cooked on a gas stove and was very worried about the potential for grease fires. Please be careful if you’re cooking on a gas stove and although this is probably common knowledge, please remember that water should NEVER be used on a grease fire! Instead, smother it with a metal lid (the heat from the fire may cause a glass lid to break), with baking soda, or with a class B chemical fire extinguisher. This is a good recipe, but I may not make it for quite some time since I don’t like to feed my family too many fried foods and also because of the danger in cooking with hot oil on a gas stove top. Wonderful recipe though!
