Creole Fried Chicken Recipe

The recipe for this creamy pan-fried chicken was given to me by my husband's grandmother. I make it at least twice a month—much to the delight of my family!
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Creole seasoning

  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
