A True Taste of the South

Lord Honey, y'all can't think of Southern cookin' without thinkin' of the all-time most Southern dish there is--that's right--Fried Chicken. Children, we love it so much in the South, that we've made up recipes to be able to have it three times a day, and even for brunch when we can. Y'all will understand what I'm talkin' about, after ya fry up a pile of my "Southern Bling Country-Fried Chicken"

· In a large heavy-bottom pot, pour oil until about 3 inches deep, bring to 360°.

· Roll each piece of soaked chicken in breading mix and place 3-4 pieces of chicken in oil, start with dark meat, cause it takes longer for it to cook, cook until medium brown or meat reads 165° on a thermometer.

· Remove form oil and place on a baking sheet, put into oven that’s heated to 325°

· Keep frying until all chicken is cooked.

Tip: This soak and breading works great on pork chops and fish.
