Today I am participating in the very first “Foodie Friday” which is hosted by Gollum at Designs by Gollum. (clicking on the logo on the left will take you to her site)
What is “Foodie Friday”? Well, it is like Outdoor Wednesday (anything outside) but it is with food (anything food). There are more details at Gollum’s site, so head over and check it out!
Since I am a Georgia girl, I simply have to spotlight one of my favorite Southern cook’s recipes…. Paula Deen….. I love her…she makes cooking fun!
This recipe is really easy!
Paula Deen’s Southern Fried Chicken
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup water
- About 1 cup hot red pepper sauce (Texas Pete)
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- House seasoning, recipe follows
- 1 (1 to 2 1/2-pound) chicken, cut into pieces
- Oil, for frying, preferably peanut oil
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 14 minutes
Yield: 6-8 servings
Directions: In a medium size 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 pepper. Season the chicken with the house seasoning. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour mixture.
Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil. Fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer then white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes.
House Seasoning: Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
- 1 cup salt
- 1/4 cup black pepper
- 1/4 cup garlic powder
