    Loved it! The brine made the chicken so moist and tasty. I loved the way she carved the chicken into a "cut ten." I really recommend using fresh oil though, otherwise it might make your skin burnt and chicken under done.

    Amazing amazing amazing. I didn't think I'd be able to make good fried chicken on the first try but this recipe worked perfectly. One thing: I used a deep fryer because managing hot oil on a stove sucks, and I'm happy I did.
