Don here, telling you about my Pretty Close to Southern Fried Chicken recipe. I’m stepping in to write this post because Lois is at camp with one of the grandkids, serving as the nurse at Camp Shiloh. (There’s still time to sign up your kids or grandkids. Go for it!) I have worked as the maintenance person in the past, but this year, Lois is doing the work grants. We have five grandkids going to camp this summer.

Maybe it’s legend or maybe it’s fact that throughout the South in days gone by folks came home from church on Sunday to sit down to a dinner of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, sliced tomatoes, biscuits and peach cobbler for dessert.

Sadly, those times are past but good home cooked fried chicken is still a treat for Sunday dinner or any other day when there is time to make it.
My Momma Betty could make some terrific Southern Fried Chicken, and I grew up on it. If I don’t make it myself, I like to go to The Southern Inn in Lexington, Virginia, for some terrific Southern Fried Chicken.
