This recipe is absolutely delicious with perfectly fried chicken.
There is something about Sundays in our house that just warrant fried chicken. I wake up almost every Sunday morning thinking about fried chicken and as the day wears on, the craving for chicken only gets stronger. We have tried a lot of fried chicken from various restaurants and even grocery stores and have a couple of favorites but there really is nothing better than homemade fried chicken.
The first time I made this recipe, I had an extra three kids at the house. I thought it wasn’t going to go well but luckily all the kids played well together and got along (and left me alone) so I could make this recipe. It’s incredibly simple to make but when you refuse to use a deep fryer like I do, then it takes a bit longer to use your smallest saucepan so that you don’t have to do so many dishes. Complicated and confusing, I know.
There is just something about having to clean a lot of dishes or big huge dish pieces that always makes me choose the more complicated way of making food. It is ridiculous, I know. It would make way more sense to just use the deep fryer but that thing is so hard to clean. It’s the same reason I choose to shred chicken with two forks instead of actually saving a lot of time by using the KitchenAid and the paddle to shred the chicken which is easier and faster. But the fact that I have to wash the big KitchenAid bowl stops me from using it most of the time.
This chicken is something I have made multiple times and it is delicious every single time. It is crunchy and full of flavor. The kids devour it and sometimes I even put it on salad with hard-boiled eggs, cheese, and avocado. Mmm, so delicious.
