How long to fry chicken legs
by: Naturally DubK

My secret to crispy fried chicken legs....take a good pot or cast iron pot fill with vegetable oil half way I use a whole 42 oz bottle. Heat oil to the perfect temperature. I do not have a thermometer I place the handle end of a wooden spoon right in the center of the oil after it has been heating for a couple of minutes. When the oil bubbles run away from the spoon your oil is ready. Place your already seasoned and floured chicken in the oil carefully making sure each piece is not touching. Allow the chicken to cook without touching it. After 5 minutes turn your chicken with tongs do not poke with a fork. Allow the chicken to cook on the other side for 5 more minutes then remove from oil and let rest for an additional 5 minutes. You are now ready to enjoy your Midwest Fried chicken with a southern twist. Enjoy

It's a little better to drain fried foods on paper bags rather than paper. Use towels to retain the crispiness. Or drain on a rack and let the grease drain on towels under.

How To Cook Deep Fried Chicken
by: Soul Food Chef

Tina, deep fried chicken is juicy and delicious. There is really only a few secrets to cooking in a deep fryer. You must heat your cooking oil to the proper temperature and don't add to much meat and overcrowd your fryer.

Start off by placing a few pieces of chicken into your hot cooking oil. When the chicken begins to float on top and brown to your desired color remove and allow to drain on some paper towels.
