  1. Willie's Favorite Fried Chicken

  2. Pin It
  3. Makes about 4 servings * Large deep cast-iron skillet with a lid * Deep-fry thermometer (if you fry a lot, you won't need this; you'll just know).

  5. 1 tablespoon Duck Commander Cajun Seasoning (mild or zesty)
  6. 2 teaspoons black pepper
  7. 1 teaspoon salt
  8. 1 teaspoon chili pepper
  9. 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  10. 1 chicken (3 1/2 to 4 1/2 pounds), cut up, or purchase just the parts your family eats
  11. 2 large eggs
  12. 2 cups buttermilk
  13. 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  14. Cooking oil, for frying
  15. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  17. In a large bowl, mix together the Cajun seasoning, pepper, salt, chili powder, and Old Bay. Roll the chicken pieces in the seasoning mixture. If you need more seasoning, mix more.
  18. In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Mix the buttermilk and Tabasco. Add the chicken pieces and make sure they are all coated.
  19. Fill the skillet about 1/2 full with oil. Turn on to medium-to-high heat.
  20. One at a time, take the chicken pieces out of the bowl and roll them in the flour. Set aside.
  21. When the oil is hot (350°F), carefully add the chicken pieces. Brown them on all sides.
  22. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes more, turning as necessary, until cooked through. The chicken should turn a golden brown. Use a fork to test. (The juices should be clear.)
  23. Drain on paper towels and serve.
  24. A Note from Miss Kay
  25. I know it's easier to pick up chicken on the way home, but it's never as good as homemade fried chicken, or at least that's what Willie says. He loves homemade fried chicken, and really, if you're in the kitchen anyway, it's not that hard!
