Tom's Famous Fried Chicken
Last week, Rebecca celebrated her grandmother's life by making her famous fried chicken. I was lucky enough to get a personal lesson and learn the secrets behind this mouth-watering Southern favorite. Rebecca starts by soaking the butcher cut chicken in salt water. After draining the chicken, she seasons it with salt and pepper. Next we dredged the chicken in flour, she used a "pig tail" to place the chicken in the melted crisco. Using her grandmother's cast iron skillet, she fries the chicken to golden perfection. Check out Rebecca's blog reminiscing about Tom, her talented grandmother.
