Southern-Style Chicken is classic picnic food. It's great cold. Just pack it up in a basket with a bottle of wine, and head out to the park for a gorgeous day.
This recipe is a real winner. In place of the classic deep-fry method, the chicken is baked in the oven coated in an incredible combination of flavor packed ingredients that produce juicy, crispy, addicting chicken every time.
