Blogstalking - Dinner preparation

So, since I was planning to make one of my favorite recipes anyway, I decided to make it my blogstalking post for the week. So, without further ado, Alton Brown's Fried Chicken, a photo essay.

Two chickens, dismantled.
A buttermilk bath.
A coating of spices.
A dredging of flour.
A rest.
A hot oil bath.
Halfway to heaven.
Golden brown and delicious.

I'm making the same thing for tonight! Mine is resting in the buttermilk as we speak. I didn't get a pick of the cutting up, but as my son said...ewww.

Omigod - my mouth was literally watering as I read your post! I love Alton Brown - Willow and I watch him together all the time as it is something me and the 4 year old can watch together and understand... and it isn't a bloody cartoon!

Oh man, delicious! But no scientific commentary like Alton Brown? ;-)

I wish it wasn't so hot here, I'd totally be frying some chicken tonite!

YUM! I love AB's recipes, but I've yet to make his fried chicken. That's one of my favorite episodes. I'm starving now....

OMG YOU MADE ME HUNGRY!!! What kind of spices? What kind of oil? How long is the buttermilk bath? Is that a standard-issue cast iron frying pan I spy?

So--do you serve this deliciousness with homemade mashed potatoes and country gravy, like my coworker did every Sunday as her kids were growing up?
