This is REAL fried chicken! Excellent recipe! I used this on a whole cut up chicken and just on wings (reduced cooking time for the wings).

i wanted a crispier, crunchier batter on my chicken and i tried this recipe last night & my family LOVED it! ...i also put a few drops of tabasco in some of the batter, for those of us who like things a little spicier, and it was fantastic!!

I just want to say I have been cooking for over 35 years and have my own fried chicken recipes, but this one really puts mine to shame. I did fry it in a cast iron dutch oven and it came out perfect. I will be using this recipe for now on. Oh just to one of the posts My breading came out just fine.

I have used this recipe for years with an electric skillet. Great every time.

Great recipe. I used onion powder instead of the chicken seasoning and I browned the chicken on both sides and finished in the oven. Turned out wonderful. This will be a recipe I use over and over again. Thanks so much for posting.

Excellent! But...combine and set aside the seasoned flour in a brown paper lunch bag. Combine the crispy batter in a one gallon freezer bag.
Use an electric skillet or some other device to maintain a constant temperature. Heat one quart of canola oil to 360 degrees. No cheating, 360 degrees before adding the chicken.
Dip according to instructions but make sure the chicken is well drained and moist. This can be done by drying the chicken and placing it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Lastly (and this is where I think "Anonymous" went wrong), fry for at least 9 of the 18 minutes before touching, turning, moving or otherwise disturbing the chicken. And NEVER EVER drain on a paper towel. I "drain" on a cooling screen. This allows the oil to "drain" from the chicken resting in a paper towel which has absorbed the oil.
This is the best crispy chicken recipe I've found. Thank you cdkitchen and try it again Anonymous!

the batter pulled away from the bird when cooking. . . I ended up with having to cut meat off of bone and make chicken soup. I did follow directions to the "T"
