This is one of our favorite recipes to take along on a picnic. We like to eat the chicken cold, along with a salad and watermelon. It's a real treat!

"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."

"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"
