Election Day Fried Chicken
Never have I seen such an exciting election day. I was in the mood for an American Favorite.Fried Chicken. I use my iron dutch oven that I have had for about 10 years now. Absolutely perfect for frying chicken. This pot is my chicken fryer. I cleaned the wings, legs, thighs and breasts. If the thighs and breasts were too large, I used a cleaver to cut them in half for faster cooking. The seasoning usually consists of seasoned salt, and pepper and I add a bit of cornmeal to my flour. The seasoning goes into the flour as opposed to the chicken itself. The chicken must be patted dry before dredging. I let them cook for about 8-10 minutes per batch. Each batch contains about 5-6 medium-small pieces. Fry the until they are golden brown and floating in the oil. MMMMmmmmmmmmmm MMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm. Fried Chicken!
