My sister's chicken looked and tasted so much better than anything I had cooked. It was boneless chicken, so I suspect that is considered cheating. Very good, cheating or not. She uses skinless chicken, and I think I vaguely recall Grandma's chicken being skinless. Then, she soaks it in salt water overnight. She coats the chicken in flour. No need for salt, since it has absorbed enough while soaking. Again, the temperature of the grease is important. She was cooking on medium on her gas stove. After the chicken was brown, she put a little water in the grease to cool it down. She says that Grandma did that and it makes the chicken tender. I'm going to give this a try with the chicken I have left from the first try. I do predict tremendous popping and possible pain as I add water to hot grease. My sister didn't have that, but I tend to injure myself while cooking. I am also including a photo of the cake my nephew decorated for my brother-in-law's birthday, because he is a little genius and center of our universe. The evening ended with an indoor baseball game. I have rug burn on my knee from trying to get my nephew's Grandma out at the first base sock. I got her out...no mercy. I also punched my husband in the stomach, while getting him out at second base sock. My nephew is going to have quite the advantage when he starts t-ball. I just hope he doesn't punch anyone. Other parents don't approve of tackle baseball.
