Fried Chicken Recipe
"BACK WHEN we used farm-fresh ingredients, our foods didn't need much embellishment to make them look and taste better. We always prepared our chickens the day before and cooked them simply." —Sandra Anderson, New York, New York
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 broiler/fryer chicken (2-1/2 to 3 pounds), cut up
- 1. In a bowl, combine first four ingredients. Wash and dry chicken; coat pieces in flour mixture. In a skillet, melt shortening to 1/2-in. depth over medium-high heat. Fry chicken (in batches if necessary) in hot shortening until golden brown on all sides. Return all chicken to pan; cover and cook over low heat until chicken is done, about 30 minutes. Yield: about 8 servings.
