this has to be one of the best fried chicken recipes
i have ever seen made...made my mouth water seeing
made by paula dean on the food network channel :D

gussie's fried chicken with pecan-honey glaze

1 (3 1/2-pounds) frying chicken, cut up,
or your favorite chicken parts
2 large eggs
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
Vegetable shortening or vegetable oil
2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1/2 cup honey
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Brown paper bag

Rinse the chicken and pat it dry. Beat the eggs in
a 9 by 13-inch dish. Lay the chicken pieces in the dish,
and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Turn the chicken and season the other side, then slosh
the chicken parts around in the egg until well coated.

Put enough shortening or oil in a cast iron pan or
electric skillet to come just halfway up the sides of the
chicken parts. Heat the shortening or oil just until
smoking, about 375 degrees F. Put the flour in a paper
bag, add the chicken pieces, a few at a time, and shake
to coat well. Remove the chicken with tongs and place it
in the hot fat. Cover the pan, leaving a crack for steam
to escape, lower the heat to 325 degrees F for electric
skillet, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn the chicken with
tongs, cover again (leaving the lid open just a crack),
and cook for 10 minutes longer. Very large pieces may
need to be cooked a little longer. Drain the chicken on
paper towels and transfer to a platter.

To make the glaze, melt the butter in a saucepan over
low heat. Whisk in the honey until well blended. Bring
to a simmer and add the pecans. Simmer for 10 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Ladle the glaze over the hot fried
chicken and serve.
