Fried chicken

My favorite beach food is leftover fried chicken. Obsessed. But, I'd never made it- something about boiling hot oil in large volumes concerned me. But that all changed today.

Chicken (I had 6 thighs with skin on and bone in)
2 cups whole milk
1 t lemon juice
1 t vinegar
1/2 t of sage, thyme, oregano, rosemary, paprika, cayenne, salt, pepper, garlic powder

Then, shake off the marinade and place in seasoned flour:
1.5 c flour
1/4 t of cayenne, paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and onion powder

Then add oil (peanut is recommended, I used vegetable) to pot for 1/3-1/2". Heat.

Fry chicken for 10-15 min each side. Drain and cool.
