This is a tasty original southern fried chicken, that works great hot or cold.
"I have tried so many different recipes trying to find a good crispy fried chicken and when I stumbled upon this one, my search was done. The Chicken is crispy yet very moist. Taste better than many restaurants I've been to. I'll occasionally buy boneless chicken and make little tenders or nuggets with this recipe for my kids and then love it. It is definitely their favorite. I originally thought that the amount of hot sauce it asks for was too much but it's just right. Sometimes if I want to add a little kick, I'll add extra. Definitely recommend it."- MGarcia0504
