I hope you get some responses. I don't have a consistent recipe I use, and I need a good one. I kind of make it up as I go, but lots of paprika, salt and pepper seem to be my favorite additives.

No problem. Whip two eggs and a cup of milk together. Add to that chicken bouillion, Accent, and pepper.

Now make two separate bowls of flour, paprika, thyme, oregano, black pepper, and Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Toss your fryer pieces into the first bowl of flour. From there, dip them in your mixture of eggs and milk. Then place them in your last bowl of flour. Fry until golden brown.

This is Tre's Slap Yo Mama fried chicken. Of course, I would have marinated the chicken first. Oh, save some grease for your gravy.

this is my recipe.

It requires a pressure cooker.

soak your chicken overnight in buttermilk. I like to add hotsauce to mine.

Mix together 3 cups of flour 3 tablespoons of salt, 1 tablespoon of pepper, 1 tablespoon of accent, 1 tablespoon of celery salt, 1 tablespoon of cayenne, 1 tablespoon of paprika, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of onion powder.

dredge chicken in flour and let it air dry on a rack for about 5 minutes.

heat oil in pressure cooker(i prefer peanut) until its NO hotter than 300 degrees and only fill the pressure cooker until its a third full, as frying with a pressure cooker can be dangerous make sure you have a fire extinguisher handy.

Place chicken in cooker and seal the pressure cooker. Chicken should take only 8-12 minutes. Depressurize by letting the steam stop or by letting cold water run over it. NEVER just de-seal it when steam is still escaping(personal exprience)

Best tasting chicken, guaranteed.

Got this one from DU.

Fried Chicken
Get large block of tofu and one large free range chicken- male, female or transgender OK. Fry tofu in pan till mainly edible. Eat tofu, reserving half for later. Place chicken in large paper bag. Smoke a joint, exhaling smoke into bag with chicken. When joint is finished, remove fried chicken from bag and eat remaining tofu to cure munchies. Attend Hate Bush rally with chicken.

Well first let the chicken out of the coop. Go to the store, Buy a Porterhouse Steak. Go home. If that chicken is still hanging around let him watch you BBQ the meat. Eat steak put chicken back in coop Check back to this thread for a good recipe then repeat above until crispy

Get "Progresso Bread Crumbs, Garlic and Herbs."

Add Paprika, Sage and Black Pepper to taste. Bake, not fry.

Whatever recipe you use.. Soaking the chicken overnight in buttermilk will make it awesome. I always buy whole chickens and cut them up myself. I also use a cast iron frying pan... everything else is secondary and done to taste.. But it's that buttermilk that makes it oh so good.

Try soaking them in yogurt, it works really well too.

Randy, reading aft_lizard's recipe, aft_lizard must either have been the cook at the Clayton Cafe or kidnapped her:

Clayton Cafe
50 North Main Street, Clayton, GA 30525
(706) 782-5438
Hours: 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
Serves chicken daily.

The Clayton Cafe soaks their chicken breasts in buttermilk and uses a pressure cooker. The result: chicken that is absolutely GBD and crunchy on the outside, and steamy tender on the inside.

LOL actually I modified it from a supposably KFC knock-off recipe but all they had was salt pepper and accent and they didnt soak it buttermilk. I tweaked the seasonings and of course added the buttermilk with hotsauce. I also lowered the temp as the seasonings get into the meat better that way, a higher temp will make it crunchier but it loses a little glavor in the process.

We used to have FReeper cookbook...later became the CLinton Cookbook I think. It was great. I got a recipie for Ronald Reagan soup in it but I don't think my hamburgers marinated in maple syrup made it...sigh.

RjayneJ used to have link on her website but she passed awhile back and I havent' been able to find it since.

Ayone know where it went?

I like to give my chicken parts a soak in buttermilk for 12-24 hours before I season them, dredge them in flour and fry them in a cast iron skillet with about three sticks of shortening. As far as seasoning goes, I just use sea salt and maybe some paprika.

It's not my own recipe, as I blatantly stole it from Alton Brown. Forgive me for my lack of originality in the realm of fried chicken :)

Caramelized Organic Chicken from Charlie Palmer, NY

 
Ingredients
For the Chicken Curried Dijon Sauce
2 oz Grape seed oil
3/4 lbs chicken wings, roughly chopped with a cleaver
5 cl garlic, peeled and smashed
5 ea shallots
2 ea Oranges, cut in half
2 oz sherry
2 cups white wine
1 pinch saffron
2 tsp peppercorns
5 sprigs tarragon, fresh, cut into large pieces
1 Tbsp curry powder
1 Tbsp turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
2 cups Chicken stock
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard (tarragon infused Dijon also works quite well)
1 cup heavy cream
 
Preparation:

1. Heat the grape seed oil in a large casserole sauce-pan and add the chicken wings. Brown them over medium high heat until nicely colored. Add in the garlic and shallots and continue to cook until they have browned up a bit too. Deglaze pan with white wine and sherry and squeeze the juice from orange halves and leave in pan. Add, curry, turmeric, saffron, peppercorns tarragon, salt, and pepper. Mix well and cover. Continue to cook on low heat for about 15 minutes while you prepare the other flavorings for the sauce.

2. In a separate saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. With a wooden spoon stir in flour to make a light colored roux. Continue stirring until the taste of flour is cooked out, for about 10 minutes. Cook the roux over a low enough flame to keep it from coloring; it should remain a pale white. To avoid lumps continue stirring and slowly pour in the chicken stock. Add mustard and stir until thoroughly combined. Add heavy cream and continue stirring. Once mixture is smooth pour into saucepan with chicken bones and let simmer for a half an hour to let flavors blend. Strain the sauce through a fine sieve, firmly pressing on any solids to extract all flavor.

To Assemble the plate
1. In the restaurant, we liberally coat this sauce over organic chicken roasted on the bone and served on a bed of aromatic basmati rice. We garnish the plate with some large, briny caper berries, dipped into a light tempura batter and fried crisp to accent the richness of the sauce. This sauce is very versatile and can be used for a variety of preparations, from grilled pork chops to broiled lobster, and is a great recipe to keep in your own repertoire. Enjoy!

Keep it simple.

I buy packages of chicken legs and place them all on a large cookie sheet - upon which I have already place a piece of "Release" foil.

Then I sprinkle on McCormick's Meat Tenderizer - Seasoned - on both sides of the legs. Then I put the pan of legs in a 325 oven to bake for about 20 minutes - turn the legs over and cook for another 15-20 minutes. They are YUM!!

If you're watching the waistline - just remove the skin before cooking and put the tenderizer directly onto the chicken. I like it both ways.

No fuss, no muss and you can warm them in the microwave the next day.
