Total Time

Yield

Feeds 4
  • 1 Chicken ( fryer chicken, either purchased cut up (recommended) or purchased whole and broken down into pieces)
  • 3 Egg
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cup Kosher Salt
  • .25 cup Pepper
  • .25 cup Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Paprika
  • Vegetable Oil ( or peanut oil for frying)

Directions

  • 1

    In a large bowl, beat the eggs. In another bowl, combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika to make a seasoned salt. Add the flour to a third bowl.

  • 2

    Prepare the chicken by first seasoning each piece of chicken to your taste with the seasoned salt. Then dip each piece in the egg and drag through flour until coated well.

  • 3

    Fill a large pot or deep fryer half full with oil and heat to 350°F. Place the chicken parts in and fry until dark and crisp. The thighs and legs will take longer to cook – about 15 minutes – than the breast and wings, which will take about 10 minutes.
