My Favorite Fried Chicken


My Favorite Southern Fried Chicken
4 Servings
print recipe

3 eggs
1/3 cup water
About 2/3 cup hot red sauce (Texas Pete is fine)
2 cups of self rising flour (all-purpose works also)
2 tablespoons KFC Original Recipe Seasoning Mix
1 teaspoon House Seasoning
1 - 2 1/2 pound chicken, cut into pieces
Oil for frying, preferably peanut oil

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange. In another bowl, combine the flour and 2 tablespoons of the KFC Original Seasoning Mix. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, and the coat with the flour mixture. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F. in a deep fryer or heavy pot. If using a pot do not fill more than 1/2 full with oil.

Fry the chicken until brown and crispy. Dark meat takes longer than white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes.</div>  Drain on crumble paper towels or rack.  Flat towels will not let the grease drain properly.
