I am looking for recipes for southern style fried chicken. Any recipes would be appreciated.

Southern Fried Chicken:
In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs with the water. Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange. In another bowl, combine the flour and pepper. Season the chicken with the House Seasoning. Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the flour mixture.
Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than 1/2 full with oil.
Fry the chicken in the oil until brown and crisp. Dark meat takes longer than white meat. It should take dark meat about 13 to 14 minutes, white meat around 8 to 10 minutes.
COLD OIL CHICKEN (honest to God, that's the name of it...)
Cover the pan and turn to 350 degrees F. When you hear the chicken frying and sizzling loudly, set a timer and cook for 15 minutes.
Remove cover and turn pieces over. Cook, uncovered for 10 minutes longer or "till meat next to bone is done" (nowadays, cook to 160 degrees F)
This is one of the best hot or cold chicken methods I've ever tasted. (09/30/2005)
Cut up chicken, salt and pepper it. (Zatarains Cajun seasoning is an excellent seasoning for your fried chicken.) Dip into the flour and place it into the preheated cooking oil. Cook until it is golden brown.
This is true southern fried chicken. You don't need all of those extra ingredients to make it good.
