This is more about the sauce than the chicken so if you have your own Southern fried chicken recipe, feel free to use it. If not, try this:

Start with a 3 ½ to 4 lb. chicken. You can simply quarter it or cut it into the standard 8 pieces (wings, thighs, legs and breasts) then cut each breast in 2 or 3 smaller pieces and cut the left over back into 2 pieces.

If you want to brine it, add ½ cup of salt and  ½ cup of sugar to 2 quarts of water. Add chicken and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Blot the chicken dry and then dredge it in flour mixed with some salt and pepper. Fry it in about ¾ inch of peanut oil, turning as necessary until golden brown – about 20 – 25 minutes or until internal temperature reached 160o. Keep the cooked chicken in a low oven until you’re ready to serve it.Frying Chicken
