Country fried chicken recipes are really the only truly authentic fried chicken recipes around, as far as my family is concerned. My mama learned to make this awesome recipe when we lived in the south, and it's the best country fried chicken recipe there is.

My Mother used to use unbleached Gold Medal Flour for her frying needs and would incorporate the salt, pepper, paprika and sage and a dash of sugar. Mixing all elements together in paper bags to coat the chicken, but I use Hungry Jack Complete Pancake for frying chicken or fish and plenty of chicken livers. The Hungry Jack has a very even texture and takes my Old Bay Seasoning well to be able to successfully fry this delicious chicken. All is well. My son ,loves it.

I have found that using unbleached flour makes the best coating rather than using all purpose......more crunch, and improves the taste of the fried chicken, this is what my mom always used, and I as a newly wed, just couldnt get my chicken like mom's so asked her secret, she didnt know she had one, but checking her cabinet, found the secret, it was the unbleached flour she always used........I keep a lb bag just for my fried chicken, or fish.......use the all purpose in baking.
