Southern Fried Chicken – classic Southern chicken recipe that is crunchy and crusty on the outside and juicy and flavorful on the inside; infused with spices and seasonings and soaked in buttermilk to amp up the flavor. A great addition to your chicken recipe collection!
When you think of Southern food, the recipes that always come to mind are cornbread, gumbo, grits and, of course, this king of all kings — fried chicken.
Well, as much as I push myself to consistently put greens on my table, I just can’t seem to easily get away with it, especially when we’re talking about chicken. It has been a part of the family’s diet ever since. And as I get older, I develop a fondness for collecting various fried or baked chicken recipes.
