There is one meal the kids and I can always agree on, and that’s fried chicken. There is something so comforting about it and, after a tough summer, our family could use a little comfort! With school back in session, now is the perfect time to get back to basics and bring back dinners at the family table. And an oven fried chicken sandwich is just the kind of meal that will bring everyone to our table with no complaint!

The thing is – if fried chicken isn’t cooked right, it’s not all that comforting. Bwah! The crispier, the better when we’re talking chicken. Am I right?
