Fried chicken in the middle of the week?? So when I get the hankering for something I just can't wait for the weekend. Hubby was shocked too because it was fried food. I have not fried chicken in years possibly even a decade. I rarely fry food and the only fried food that comes close are hamburgers.
Our mom fried chicken every Sunday when we were little. She would send us off to church which was only one block away so within walking distance. After church, I remember this vividly - walking a few houses before our house and already catching the lovely aromas of fried chicken coming from mom's kitchen. What great memories.
I wish I had this recipe when my kids were small. Back then it seems like I always had the oil too hot with the kitchen filling up with smoke and my chicken would either come out burned and always tasteless.
This chicken recipe is delicious! Even hubby commented on how delicious it tasted. I got it from Martha Stewart's website. It comes with a video, check it out here: http://www.marthastewart.com/852368/classic-fried-chicken
Have a blessed rest of the week and weekend! Until next time,
