“IN MEMORY OF MY MOM. This chicken, taught to me by my Mom when I was about 12 years old, was the way everyone I knew did it in Mississippi and Georgia. I hope you like it. It has a crispy, huge thick coating with the southern "touch" (the magical ingredients being the vinegar and baking powder) and tender inside. Oh ! my ! never a chicken like this.”
