Norah Jones, whose latest album, Little Broken Hearts, is out now, spent years perfecting this crispy delight.
Who doesn’t love fried chicken? I grew up eating it cold, since my mom would make it to take on car trips. It tastes so good that way.
Six years ago, I was in Memphis shooting a movie and someone brought fried chicken from Gus’s. I got really obsessed. It started me on my fried chicken path, and I’ve been tweaking my recipe ever since. Theirs had something spicy in it, so I started adding hot sauce to mine; I like a little kick. And I only use legs and thighs—they’re smaller and they cook more evenly.
The onions are special, too; they add a nice sweetness. Some people run cold water over onions before cutting them up, but I always forget and end up weeping. If an onion gets stuck to a piece of chicken, don’t separate them. Whoever gets that piece is lucky!
