Spicy Southern fried chicken!

INGREDIENTS :
12 pieces chicken legs and wings
Cooking oil (I used peanut oil)
Flour (2 parts)
Cornstarch (1 part)
2 beaten eggs
Salt
Pepper
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Paprika
Poultry seasoning
Cajun seasoning of your choice
Cayenne pepper

For me, there are a few things you must do to get flavorful crispy golden brown well-done chicken…..
1. You need to season the chicken well
2. You need to coat the chicken with something……eggs, buttermilk or mustard
3. The oil needs to be hot enough but not too hot as to brown the chicken too much before it cooks through internally.
4. Do not overcrowd the pan
Direction :
Season chicken with spices, (use your judgment as to how much) place in a resealable plastic bag, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours

Preheat heavy pot/pan to med-high, add cooking oil, and bring to about 350°

Remove chicken from fridge about 20 minutes before cooking

Pour the beaten eggs into the bag over the chicken, reseal and shake until well coated

Mix flour and cornstarch (2 parts flour 1 part cornstarch)
Add chicken to the flour and shake until each piece is well coated.
Place chicken carefully into the hot oil. Do not overcrowd the pot/pan
Cook 15-17 minutes until golden brown and crispy
Drain on a wire rack or paper towels
Enjoy!
