Fried Chicken

Ingredients

Frying chicken

House seasoning or seasoned salt

Self-rising flour

Vegetable oil

Directions

Our fried chicken is made with years of experience and love! Our cook Vertrella Brown washes and thoroughly trims the fat off of each piece of chicken before seasoning it with her own mixture of salt, pepper, paprika, and granulated garlic. After seasoning, the chicken sits in the refrigerator for about two hours. When it’s time to fry, she puts self-rising flour in a paper or plastic bag and shakes up the spiced chicken. The chicken is then dropped into the deep fryer. Vertrella has been cooking at Sea View Inn for twenty-eight years and has an innate sense for frying chicken; she goes by color and pokes it with a fork to get a feel for when it’s “ready.”
