Here is my project for Friend Chicken day. It is 2 recipe cards for my niece's Recipe book I am making her. As I was born in Kentucky and grew up eating friend chicken, I felt this day was for me. I wanted to do a page with KFC on it. I have a photo of the Big Chicken in Marietta Georgia. What is the Big Chicken you ask? It is a KFC restaurant in Marietta that has become a landmark and scenic stop for tourist. I lived in Georgia 23 years. The building is shaped like a chicken and the beak opens and eyes rotate. It is a fun stop for kids and the young at heart.
The Southern Fried Chicken is my recipe. I have used it for years. Although I never measure the ingredients and it often ends up with other spices in it too.
