This Fried Chicken Recipe involves coating the chicken with a flavorful breading mixture or batter. The chicken is pan fried or deep fried afterwards. There are no restrictions as to which part of the chicken you wish to use. If you will ask me, I will say chicken wings all the way, but other people love to have some meat — so adding meaty parts, such as breast, is recommended.
There are several ways to fry a chicken; this fried chicken recipe is just one of the hundreds out there. I personally liked this recipe because of its simple flavor and nice texture. The chicken is crispy and tasty on the outside but juicy in the inside.
Another good thing about this fried chicken recipe is the sauce — or gravy — so to speak. You might be used to the ordinary gravy served in fast foods restaurant; this one is different. If you want a better tasting and creamier gravy, you should try our White Gravy Recipe.
