Make your chicken gravy to go over these!
Great recipe. My family really did enjoy it. The seasoning was just perfect. Thanks for posting.
I was looking for a copycat KFC extra crispy recipe and came across this fantastic recipe for country fried chicken. This was by far the best fried chicken I have ever made!! My very picky 5 and 3 year olds tore into it!! Great recipe I wouldn’t change a thing!! Thank you for posting
I made this recipe yesterday and I was very pleased at the way the chicken fried up nice and crispy almost like regular fried chicken. The problem I had with this recipe is that there seems to be something missing from the gravy to thicken it up. It remained a liquid even after reducing by one third. I believe George Stella uses Guar or Xanthan gum as a thickener. I also use those products to thicken but by the time that I realized that the gravy needed to be thickened there was not enough of it left after boiling away.
I will deffinately make this meal again but I will use Xanthan gum (from your local health food store)as a thickener for the gravy.
This is one of our favorite recipes to take along on a picnic. We like to eat the chicken cold, along with a salad and watermelon. It’s a real treat!
