What's your best seasoned flour recipe for chicken

what's your best seasoned flour recipe for fried Chicken? Here's mine:

I'm going to name this one - Goodweed's Bull Dog Chicken
Preheat the oven to 375' F.
In a bowl, combine the following with a wire whisk.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic powder
1/8 tsp. powdered ginger
1/2 tsp. marjoram
1/4 tsp. rubbed sage
1/4 tsp. ground thyme
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. tumeric
1/8 tsp. red pepper
1 dash Chinese 5-spice powder
1/8 tsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp. granulated onion powder
In a seperate bowl, make an egg-wash from 1 large egg whisked with 1/4 cup water.

Preheat 2 inches of oil in a frying pan until fragrant. Turn heat to medium flame.

Skin the chicken thighs and dredge in seasoned flour. Dip in the egg-wash, and then again in the seasoned flour. Shake excess coating from the chicken and place in hot oil. Don't crown the pan. Fry on each side for 2 minutes. Remove the chicken to a foil-lined pan and place into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve immediately.

On the lighter side:
Recipe Number 2: Name this one for me, but not until after you've tried it. So good!
Preheat oven to 375' F.
Again, whisk the following ingredients into a bowl:
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup uncooked farina (cream of wheat)
1 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. red pepper
1/8 tsp. ground cumin
Egg-wash
Follow the same cooking technique as in recipe number 1.


Ok. So while the first recipe is a delicate delight, the second is a celebration for your taste buds. Neither is your grandma's fried chicken. This is pure goodweed stuff. I hate to sound so full of myself, but after these two successes, I really can't help myself. You guys and gals gotta try 'em. If you don't, you'll be cheating yourselves. You can tell your family that you created them if you want. I don't care. Can I have some more? Oh, wait. I just made two pieces. Oh, and the second recipe is made to go with some great sides, like sweet or mashed potatoes, and a good salad to help resuscitate your taste buds. Enjoy.

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

So far, the best coating for fried chicken we've found was the North Carolina Dipped Chicken that was done on an episode of Cook's Country.

I generally use all the seasonings on the chicken, not in the flour. Don't know if that's right or wrong, but highly seasoned coating doesn't do it for me.

I've found the same thing. I rarely make fried chicken anymore, but when I did, I used my mom's recipe: 1 cup flour, 1 tsp each salt, poultry seasoning and paprika, and 1/2 tsp black pepper.

I usually soak my chicken in buttermilk with the spices in it. Flour is kept simple, salt, pepper, bit of garlic powder. I also make a mix of flour, some cornstarch, and a pick of baking powder. Makes for a very light, crunchy coating.

Depending on the ratios offlour to cornstarch, and baking powder, your have a basic tempra batter. And yes, it does come our very light and crispy.
