Mama’s Guide Instructions:
1. In one medium bowl, mix together 3 cups of flour, garlic salt, 1 tablespoon white or black pepper and paprika. This is for your dry mix.
2. In a separate bowl, stir together 1 1/3 cups flour, salt, dried sage, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, egg yolks and buttermilk or whole milk. You may need to thin with additional buttermilk or whole milk if the batter is too thick.
3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer.
4. Moisten each piece of chicken with a little water, then dip in the dry mix. Shake off excess and dip in the wet mix, then dip in the dry mix once more.
5. Carefully place the chicken pieces in the hot oil. Fry for 5 to 7 minutes, or until well browned. Remove and drain on paper towels before serving.
