Fried Chicken Recipe Southern

This is an easy yet so tasty southern fried fried chicken recipe. I learnt this recipe many years ago and has been a staple in my house since. One thing I love about making this is it makes THE BEST leftovers, love eating it cold or on a sandwich. This is a fried chicken recipe without buttermilk so it is easy to do with staples you probably have at home.

The recipe is quite simple, you will need a large fry pan (I prefer using a banquet electric fry pan), lots of oil and paper towels to dry it on after. The ingredients are flour, eggs, chicken stock, paprika and garlic powder. Simple right? Let’s get started!
