My Favorite Food, Fried Chicken

If fried chicken is on the menu, I am ordering it.  I have found lots of restaurants who have excellent fried chicken, but honestly, I still love my fried chicken just as good.  This chicken is marinated in buttermilk and a little hot sauce.  It is juicy, very crispy, and has a beautiful, flavorful crust.  I have been working on the combination of spices for my fried chicken for years.  I love a tasty piece of chicken, and this fried chicken has the great flavor it is truly the best Fried Chicken Recipe!

My secrets to frying crispy, flavorful best Fried Chicken Recipe!

  • Marinate the chicken overnight in buttermilk.
  • Mix up an incredible combination of spices to add to the flour.
  • ADD SOME BAKING POWDER!!  Baking Powder is a magical ingredient. 
  • Save a couple of tablespoons of the spice mixture to add to the chicken after frying it.
  • Flour the chicken and allow it to rest for 15 minutes in a large pan.  Do not let it touch each other.
  • After 15 minutes, dip the chicken back into the flour mixture.
  • Once the chicken is done, season it well as soon as it comes out of the hot grease.

Drizzle Fried Chicken With Honey

My favorite way to eat fried chicken is with a little honey drizzled on it.  The sweetness with the crunch and flavor of the chicken is truly the best food ever.
I have fried many a chicken in my cast iron dutch oven, but it is so much crispier, safer and easier to fry in this Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer.  If you have a crowd to feed why not fry some chicken.  Everyone will love it, and it cooks in minutes in this electric fryer.HOW TO MAKE THE BEST EVER FRIED CHICKEN RECIPE - What is my favorite food ever?

  1. Just wanted to say 1 thing. I do outdoor frying with my turkey fryer. There are safety issues if not used properly. I have had my fair share of regular fryers for the kitchen. All the kitchen ones have had issues after 1 year… That said, I will always do my turkeys outside on propane. I just love the outdoors cooking….. However, we bought the butterball turkey fryer for the kitchen. Hands down the best fryer! We use it all the time from fried chicken to taquitos to even our own tortilla chips.

    • Daaron,

      I love fried food especially fried chicken and a deep fried turkey. You must be from the south too. Anyway, thank you for your comment about the Butterball Turkey Fryer. I truly love it way to much! I am going to have to try homemade tortilla chips. I have not thought about frying them. YUM!

      Thanks so much for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread,
