Southern Fried Chicken

by Sjaiful A. on Thu, January 26, 2012

This is so sinfully good. Once the chicken is fried to perfection, the golden skin breaks away like crispy biscuits while the flesh stays moist and juicy.

Yeehaw! Yummy chickens...

Serves 4 people

Succulent fried chicken that is so finger lickin' good.

The chicken needs to marinade for 2-3 hours/overnight.
