“Crispy, flaked and juicy fried chicken. I got this recipe from Chester who also attened a culinary class at CFJP. Chester recommends that if you have not had much experience frying chicken start with the drumsticks. When I made this I seasoned the chicken as directed, but for my family this was to salty, so next time I'll just season my flour. I did use 1 cup of flour and coated 6 chicken drumsticks. I used my deep fryer and fryed the chicken 15 minutes.”
4-5 chicken drumsticks
