KFC Fried Chicken Recipe - It's Not the Original But It's Good!
It's summer and it's picnic time, so what better to serve than fried chicken. It might not be the secret KFC fried chicken recipe, but it's darn good! I've made this a couple of times and the chicken turns out real tasty!
Mix together the salt, Louisiana hot sauce and buttermilk, add the chicken and make sure the chicken is coated with the buttermilk mixture. Cover tightly and refrigerate for 4 hours.
Put the rest of the dry ingredients, including 3 teaspoons of salt, into a paper sack and mix up the ingredients in the bag by shaking the bag.
In a heavy skillet--cast iron is best, heat the oil or shortening to 375 degrees. Make sure you are using enough oil to cover each piece of chicken. Also, make sure the sides of the skillet are high enough so the oil doesn't overflow when the chicken pieces are in the oil cooking.
Take each piece of chicken out of the buttermilk mixture and one at a time drop in the paper bag and shack to thoroughly coat the chicken, do this with half the pieces and put in hot oil. Cook each piece for 10 minutes on each side. When done drain on rack or paper towels and coat and cook the remaining pieces in the same manner.
If you want to cook more chicken just double or triple the recipe.
