    It’s GREAT!! I discovered this recipe on my own about 3yrs ago…I was short of flour.so I used pancake mix for the second batch totally separate to TELL A DIFFERENCE AND Omg the pancake mix gives you such a perfect golden color with a nice crunch that gives you an AMAZING GOOD FRIED CHICKEN TASTE!! if you like fried chicken give pancake batter a try!!! Any brand I’ve tried several!!!

    I use this recipe and always add a touch of chipotle powder to the brine (1/2) teaspoon and my guests just can’t get enough. They love the tiniest touch of spicy chiplotle flavor. People pay me to make it for their big events and occasions. I made over $11,000 last winter making this recipe. I guess that’s what they call Chicken Scratch – HA! Of course, I make a huge batch of buttermilk waffles and honey to go along with each serving of my giant boneless chicken breast.

    Why do you rinse the chicken after you have brined it?

    The chicken will stay crispier if it is placed on a wire rack instead of a paper towel.
    IMO of course.

    Always drain on a wire rack not paper towels. Makes a huge difference.

    The chicken looks delicious! I haven’t fried chicken since I lost my husband almost 5 years ago. I would like to try a different better. I do have a concern about the gravy, does it have a sweet flavor, and also is the batter thick after its fried. Thank you for Sharon Granny’s recipe.

    You mentioned that there is something missing and I “may” know what it is.
    My granny made the most delicious biscuits for us when we were growing up and she gave us all the recipe. Nobody could quite get it right, the little peaks that he’s had were flat on ours and the taste was a little off.
    One day we watched her make them and that’s when we all said “oohhhh”, she what kind of oil she used. It turns out that the missing ingredient was Crisco.
    I wonder if your Granny used Crisco to fry the chicken instead of the vegetable would we all use today.
