Nothing quite as delicious as a big bowl of fried chicken after a long long day. Healthier than KFC, cheaper and very delicious. I made a sweet and savory spice mix that I absolutely loved in this recipe.
Fry the chicken enough time for it to be cooked inside but also very crispy outside, that take it to the next level of deliciousness.
