    You are so right about excluding the eggs—
    and for the right reason!!! I also learned this from experience. Thanks for confirming this cooking tip, Ms. Connie.

  6. Connie says:

    Mark, Landmark and Unimart both sell Alber’s cornmeal.

  7. James says:

    Skipping the eggs is a good idea. If you want super crispy, double-dredge. Use milk as the liquid between coats.

    Your wings look awesome!

  8. Crisma says:

    Really got so inspired with this one, Ms. Connie! We had this for lunch, and my son
    really raved about how good the chicken was!
    Thanks again! ;)

    Crisma, ah so you’ve tried it! Great. Kids are such honest critics. Mine are super honest — when I mess up, the reactions are soooo mean LOL

  11. Connie says:

    Jasin, no they’re not the same. See the cornmeal entry.

  13. Connie says:

    Hi Connie, I have been looking for a recipe for Don Henrico’s-style Buffalo Wings since last week and sadly could not find anything that comes close… until I came across this site of yours. It looks close to the real thing so I’ll try to make a batch tomorrow and see what happens… And your Southern Fried Chicken sure looks tasty & crispy!

    BTW, I came across a recipe for Kenny Rogers Corn Muffins some time ago, but haven’t been able to make some as it called for some corn meal. Now that you’ve told us where to get it (sa Unimart lang pala!) I’ll finally be able to try it out.

    Hi.. thanks for the recipe…can i subsitute cornmeal to bread crumbs?

    thnks again…

    • Connie says:

      The crust would be too thick and hard. Breadcrumbs and cornmeal on a 2:1 ratio seems to yield the best crust.

  16. athena says:

    Ms. Connie, i cant find cornmeal anywhere in our local market, and pls excuse me for this kinda st**pd question, but i’m having a hard time understanding the previous comment about substituting it to bread crumbs, so maybe you can enlighten me, the comment above says 2:1 ratio for breadcrumbs and cornmeal, and the recipe asks for 1/4 cup cornmeal, so i’ll use 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs instead? or should it be 1/8 cup? thank you

  17. Connie says:

    It means cornmeal with no bread crumbs won’t work as the crust wvill be too thick and hard.

    2:1 ratio means 2 parts breadcrumbs and 1 part cornmeal.

  18. Athena says:

    I’ll try flour + cornmeal next time, i cooked this earlier this morning for the party at night. used 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 cup breadcrumbs. The chicken tastes delicious, i marinated it for atleast 3 hours (chicken wings) and about 8 hours for other chicken parts. But it isnt crunchy anymore, well it’s just ok since everyone enjoyed it :) especially with the sauce.

  19. Myra says:

    hi connie! your chicken looks amazing! I just had one question what do you suggest for a substitute to cayenne powder?

  20. Shana says:

    I use a bag of drummettes. I open it up and season with garlic pdr, cayenne pepper, Lowrys seasoned salt, 1 pkg sazon goya seasoning. Sprinkle with Tapatio hot sauce for a bit of spice. Cut a small onion and mix it all together. Close bag and place in fridge for at least 3 hrs.. overnight if u like. Heat oil in pan and once its getting hot put in big chunks of onion to season the oil.. a little butter in there too. I mix flour, paprika, cayenne, little garlic podwer and dip chicken. Pat off excess flour. Fry over med high as listed above.
