1 (4 pound)
chicken, cut into pieces
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil for frying
I was skeptical...but this was great! Reminds me of a smothered/baked chicken. I would recommend salting the chicken before shaking it in the seasoned flour. Yummy!
It came out soggy- will not use this recipe again
I have never cooked fried chicken before. I was skeptical that this would turn out, but I was happily surprised. I fried chicken legs and I followed the recipe exactly. When the legs came out of the final simmering pan, I wasn't happy with how soft they were. I wanted my fried chicken crispy. I took the chicken and put it in the flour and seasoning again and fried it for another 5 minutes. We loved it! I enjoyed the extra coating and was so pleased with the outcome I will surely make this again. This is great, even a novice can cook this successfully!
This was AWESOME! Everyone I made it for said it was the best fried chicken they had ever eaten.
needed more oil than it says but good
I used this simple recipe with the sour cream recipe I found on here and I finally got it right. I used whole legs, next time I'll just use drumsticks. You are going to need more than a tablespoon of oil. Not a low fat recipe, but a great comfort food!!
this is so good and so easy to make.
