Southern Sunday Chicken

Southern fried chicken is a tradition here. I created this recipe as a substitute, and my husband thinks it's wonderful.

    The taste of this was okay. It was a lot of work for what it ended up being.

    My family really liked this. I put about half as much paprika as the recipe suggested- as I am sensative to paprika.

    This was really good, I had to add some salt free seasoning to the sauce though, it didn't have much flavor. After that though it was excellent
