I made this for dinner this evening and it turned out GREAT. I combined several hints and tips from other users to make my own special combonation. I brined the chicken (drumsticks) for about 2 hours in salt water, then soaked it buttermilk. I had a box of Zataran's Chicken Fry and used it instead of the flour and spices. Basically it's the same thing anyway. I put the Zataran's in a bag and coated my drumsticks two at a time, frying them 4 at a time in a heavy skillet in light olive oil. I made 8 total and served it with scalloped potatoes, green beans seasoned with country ham bits, and a ranch n bacon pasta salad. For dessert I made a yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I served beer and soda with the meal. It was fantastic, the best fried chicken I've made years. I don't recommend double-dipping the mix, esp in egg...it works much better the simple way. Thanks to all the other members who posted their tips, you were a big help.
