Chile-Lime Fried Chicken

Chile-Lime Fried Chicken

This is a modified fried chicken recipe that I've done twice now.  The original was courtesy Sunny Anderson at the Food Network.  Changes include more spices, easier prep using more commonly found chili powder vs dried, toasted, and ground whole chilies.  I also added additional components to the brine to enhance the flavor.  Note that this is NOT a spicy hot chicken recipe.  Chili power is very mild, if you want more heat, you could always add a teaspoon of Cayenne powder to the rub (and/or brine).  The overall methodoligy will be familiar to anyone who's made fried chicken at home.  Easy!
