This classic take on fried chicken is by far my favorite. I served it with potato salad, fresh fruit and of course a big glass of sweet tea. Yum!
If you aren’t familiar with LouAna Peanut Oil, here is a little background: Lou Ana was born in Opelousas, Louisiana in 1820, a place where the food is an elemental expression of love, flavor and family. They now have over 14 types of cooking oil for sautéing, deep frying and baking.
Peanut oil has a high smoke point, creating a surface seal that locks the food’s natural moisture allowing the steam to cook the food from the inside out. It’s no wonder that LouAna is the #1 Brand of Peanut Oil in the country!
