The one advantage of kosher chicken in this case, it already has been briend. Meat after animal was slaughtered goes into salt and then water. It is done draw the blood out.

I'm a newb at frying chicken in a skillet. I'm just barely OK at it. I discovered you don't need a lot of oil in the pan. I've still got the recently released KFC secret recipe. The one that got leaked by some relative of the Colonel's. I'm about to try that soon. Also, some site mentioned putting a bit of baking soda in the dry mix. It's supposed to make the chicken batter mix fry up more frothy after you dip the chicken in an egg solution and go to fry. A small amount of baking soda added to the dry mix.

Oh ya...supposedly, white pepper is a key secret ingredient, so I bought some.

Over cooked chicken or turkey is dry. Properly prepared and not over cooked poultry is very tender. Same with pork chops and steaks. Its easy to ruin these cuts by over cooking them.

We use salt and pepper aggressively and dredge in flour. Its great and I like it better than take out.
We also leave the skin on and make sure its good and crispy.

I am with you on the amount of oil. You do not need to deep fry. I use about an inch of oil and turn once.
