If you are born and raised in the south, chances are you will say your Mom makes the best fried chicken you have ever put in your mouth. The experts have sampled fried chicken far and wide and say this South Carolina restaurant has the South’s Best Fried Chicken. That is a huge statement. But I trust this source. This is according to an article in Southern Living magazine.
People travel far and wide to find the best perfectly fried brown bird and have their preferences. White meat or dark or both? Fried in extra batter or lightly battered? All kinds of ways to enjoy the South’s favorite entree. I grew up on what the experts call “down-home classic fried chicken”.
This is how many southern ladies choose to make their fried chicken at home. Cut up a whole bird or buy the parts you like. Soak the pieces in buttermilk or whole milk then roll those pieces in flour. Next you will want to salt and pepper the chicken and fry it up in vegetable oil. I prefer peanut oil. Don’t walk too far from the stove, keep an ear out for a certain “sound” the chicken makes when it is ready to turn.
What if you don’t have all that time? This South Carolina spot is worth the drive. Find out which South Carolina restaurant has the best fried chicken as well as other top fried chicken spots in the country. Get details from Southern Living.
