With all due respect to a certain goateed colonel, as well as a nod to Olive Oyl's better half, fried chicken is just better when you fry it up yourself.

OK, we admit to having a soft spot for the occasional bucket of the stuff, but the money we save by firing up our own fryer is all the incentive we need to opt for home cooking.
