  • Published on:  11/4/2015
  • This recipe is my tried and true southern cast iron skillet fried chicken. Brining the chicken overnight ensures the fried chicken comes out moist and tender. The crust on this chicken is crispy, crunchy and oh so tasty! The added hot sauce in the coating process gives it a tangy heat and finger lickin' flavor.
