In this video, we learn how to make traditional southern fried chicken. First, place ham, lard, and butter into a pot. Next, take your chicken and dip them into buttermilk and let dry. Next, dip the chicken into the batter, then fry them into the oil mixture you just made. You will cook the chicken until it's golden brown and cooked thoroughly. When finished, let the chicken sit on a paper towel to drain off an excess oil. Serve while it is still hot with your favorite sides, and enjoy a delicious homemade meal! Don't forget to turn the chicken over while cooking so you cook all sides.
