About this recipe: This is the crispiest, spiciest, homemade fried chicken I have ever tasted! It is equally good served hot or cold and has been a favourite in my family for years.
Here is a really easy tip to check the temp of your oil - if you place the tip of a wooden spoon in the oil, and little bubbles form around it, the oil is ready to go. - 11 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Ok, I have been searching a lot of different sites for a great friend chicken recipe and I finally found one. I think the overall mixture make for a great crunchy texture, but I found the flavor to be a bit bland without the use of the dip. I believer a good friend chicken should not have to be dipped (or chicken strips in my case) I followed the recipe exactly (including the beer, I used my favorite Icehouse) anyways, I used Granulated Garlic instead of Garlic salt and after I tested my first piece I decided it needed more flavor. In the batter I put 2 table spoons of All Season Salt and 1 table spoons of Celery Salt and WOW! They are awesome to eat even without dip. Anyways, I wanted to leave my .02 cents because this recipe really is very good and worth it. - 24 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This chicken is really good and easy to prepare. Here is how I did it. I used legs and thighs which I removed the skin from. Heated the deep frier to 360 degrees and fried the legs 10 minutes and the thighs 15. I didn't think it was spicy but very chrispy. - 23 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
