From Mrs. Wilkes' Boardinghouse Cookbook
"If the Colonel made it so good, he'd be a general." I said that on the TODAY show and made Bryant Gumbel laugh.
Serves 4 to 6
1 (2 1/2-pound) fryer, cut up Salt and pepper 2 tablespoons evaporated milk 2 tablespoons water All-purpose flour Vegetable oil
Sprinkle the fryer with salt and pepper. Pour the milk and water over the fryer and marinate for about 10 minutes. Dip in a bowl of all-purpose flour. Shake off the excess flour. Heat oil to 300° and deep-fry (or heat oil to medium and panfry) the chicken. Make sure the chicken is covered with oil at all times. Fry until golden brown.
Note: This recipe can be used for pork chops.

My husband and i will never forget Mrs. Wilkes resturant. We stayed in Savannah and dined at Mrs. Wilkes resturant nine years ago on our 50th wedding anniversary and loved every minute of it. We've been back since with my sisters and brother-in-laws and have had a great time. Savannah is our favorite place to visit. Dorothy & Bud Zellers Dunnellon, Fl.

My family and I were in Savannah in 1999 and we ate at Mrs. Wilkes' Boarding House. It was some of the best food I've ever had. I bought her cookbook and she signed it for me. I will never forget how cordial she was. Her recipes are easy and always turn out well. This cookbook is a must-have.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
