Personal Notes:
Mom, (Mallie) loved my fried chicken she said that it was moist and delicious. She said that hers came out dry. Mom fried hers too fast. It came from her cooking outside and in Arizona where her kitchen was too hot and she tried cooking too fast to get out of the heat - this chicken has to be cooked fast enough to get it done but slow enough not to burn - the self rising flour helps to seal in the juicies and browns the chicken - the oil in the frying pan that coats both top and bottom helps to cook evenly that is the key to cooking the chicken so moist - I couldn't out cook Mallie on hardly any thing and I'm glad that I could give her pleasure in cooking fried chicken for her.
