I don’t normally cook, my wife does the cooking in our home. I decided today to cook to give my wife a break. I must say, that was by far the best chicken I have ever cooked, when I do cook. My boys and wife really enjoyed it! Anytime I cook fired chicken, form this time forward it will be this recipe.Thank you, for sharing such a easy and tasty recipe.

This was some of the best fried chicken I have ever made. I had to alter the way I cooked it because I couldn't find my cast iron skillet with the lid. I browned the chicken in oil on both sides and finished it in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. Came out deliciously juicy with crispy skin.

I found this recipe great and tasted like my mother used to make - she died in 1973 and the recipe died with her so I am very happy to find your recipe!

This recipe is good as is, but I like to soak the chicken in buttermilk for a couple hours before cooking. I also use seasoned salt in place of the garlic salt.

Well worth the effort, reminds me of summer days at Grandma's house for dinner.

This is the first time making Fried Chicken and this was great. I did change a couple of things. 1-instead of a shallow bowl i used a large zip bag. 2- added a few shots of Hot sauce to the wet bag. 3- added chicken to the wet bag and let it rest for 1/2 hour turning the bag a couple of times. When I was ready to start putting the pieces into the dry bag I first drained the liquid from the wet then started by dropping only 2 pieces into the dry bag at a time. Clean up was fast. Will make this again and again. Thanks
