Fried Chicken

Pretty straight forward… going to follow Alton’s technique from the Good Eats episode below (which also includes a tour of the Lodge cast iron factory in Tennessee… pretty neat):

Good Eats, Season 4, Episode 3: Fry Hard II (do yourself a favor and skip ahead to 1:40):



  • one 3-4 lb broiler/fryer chicken
  • 2 cups low-fat butter milk
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • a couple cups of all purpose flour for dredging

Should be better than the Colonel’s “secret recipe”… and I’ve been dying to get my cast iron skillet working for more than just Saturday morning bacon. The wife has been feeling a bit under the weather, so I’m hoping some good comfort food will help her feel a little better.
