Best-Ever Fried Chicken
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 20 min.
Cooked this up with my daughter tonight, after finding your post about using a dutch oven for stovetop deep frying. (Genius, by the way! The weight of it keeps it securely in place on the burner and there's even less chance of knocking it askew and splashing grease because it lacks the long handle of most cookware!) This recipe was super easy and the chicken came out nice and crispy - I'm not a great cook (it's not my favourite pastime), but this was super simple, and amazingly flavourful for having so few ingredients. Definitely a new go-to recipe for us - thanks!
Have done this twice in one week .. Very good .. I did use buttermilk in place of milk & Johnny's seasoning in place of salt .. First time I have cooked chicken this way & the wife & I loved it .. It was VERY GOOD ..
Didn't turn out light brown, I think to much paprika in flour mixture. I will not use this recipe again.

Great taste not fatty but crisp and juicy
Did not make this yet, but every time I use buttermilk, which some here suggest, the chicken crust burns. I have no idea why, but it does.
I did not rate this recipe because my son made a "copy cat" KFC chicken that was a great match. First thing, go the extra step and use real buttermilk. The enzymes in the milk help to make chicken tender. This is the reason the chicken is is soaked .overnight. in the buttermilk. His recipe also had, literally, 11 herbs and spices. I'm not going to give his source because I don't want to do a plug for anyone. I don't know what this recipe tastes like. But the one my son used was spot on.
I recall Colonel Sanders saying how many spices (12?) were in his secret recipe. For many years, I just added a spice packet from the Italian dressing. You know, the one you measure with salad oil, vinegar, water and shake well. Then continued on with the rest of the recipe. I still enjoy this method. Good luck to all!
I've been making this for years it's so delicious
The dried thyme is overpowering. Other than that it's a pretty good recipe. Maybe 1/2 tsp of thyme
