Best Southern Fried Chicken

Yum Posted in : Chicken, Dinner on by : Master Chef

Take these spicy fried drumsticks to a party or picnic, or enjoy them as a main dish along with coleslaw, potato salad, and baked beans. The recipe calls for drumsticks, but feel free to use whole chicken legs. If you have some chicken wings or thighs, fry them as well. Just remember to reduce the cooking time for smaller pieces of chicken.
