The spicy coating for this chicken is one I've put together over the years. My recipe really got a workout when our four children (now married)were young and our family competed out on the rodeo circuit. Whenever the word spread I'd brought along fried chicken, the cowboys would crowd around!
Today, my husband and I run an 800-acre cattle and quarter horse ranch.
As a yankee originally from Vermont, I didn't know one fried chicken from another. They all seemed pretty much the same to me. Discovering the Southern version opened my eyes! A side of hot biscuits with butter and honey is practically mandatory. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, GA
I was never impressed with the fried chicken recipes I'd tried, but then I started to experiment and came up with one that my whole family loves. Once you taste it, you'll know why! —Samantha Pazdernik, Breckenridge, MN
This fabulous recipe uses Greek yogurt to create an amazing marinade that makes the chicken incredibly moist. No one will guess that it's been lightened up and not even fried! — Kim Wallace, Dennison, Ohio
