  • Summary

    Crispy, juicy and perfectly seasoned, this fried chicken lives up to its name. Summer reunions and neighborly gatherings will never be the same. When I was growing up, my parents had a farm, and every year, Dad would hire teenage boys to help by haying time. They looked forward to coming because they knew they would be treated to Mom's delicious fried chicken. —Lola Clifton, Vinton, Virginia
