How to Make Perfect Southern Fried Chicken

Delicious crunchy bread on the outside with a moist and tender center is what Southern Fried Chicken is all about. It is a type of comfort food that will fit all. Serve it with your favorite home-style sides and wash it down with a cup of sweet tea for a southern savor in your mouth.

Usually, the way Southern fried chicken is seasoned depends only on how you grew up eating it. Some chefs add herbs to the flour, others marinate chicken nuggets in hot sauce, some add more spices, as well as table salt and black pepper for the rusk. Some chefs season the shelf, not the chicken. Some, like me, season each layer separately, starting with chicken, washed eggs and flour. Now, I’m not someone to say that any of these methods are wrong, and I feel you should have some freedom to work your way up with the taste you enjoy. My rule of thumb is, if you enjoy the flavor, this is a win-win. I’m not a fan of cute fried chicken, I definitely go for seasoning every layer.

In a bowl, mix another cup of flour, starch and baking powder.

We prepare the chicken pieces and dip them first in the curd and flour mixture from all sides, then put them in the flour and starch mixture and turn them over until they are covered on all sides.

Then put it back in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
