Directions

  1. Trim any excess skin and fat from the chicken pieces. Preheat the
  2. shortening in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees. Combine the beaten egg and
  3. milk in a medium bowl. In another medium bowl, combine the remaining
  4. coating ingredients When the chicken has marinated, transfer each
  5. piece to paper towels so that excess liquid can drain off. Working
  6. with one piece at a time, dip in egg and milk then coat the chicken
  7. with the dry flour mixture, coated very generously. Stack the chicken
  8. on a plate or cookie sheet until each piece has been coated. Drop the
  9. chicken, one piece at a time into the hot shortening. Fry half of the
  10. chicken at a time (4 pieces) for 12-15 minutes, or until it is golden
  11. brown. You should be sure to stir the chicken around halfway through
  12. the cooking time so that each piece cooks evenly. Remove the chicken
  13. to a rack or towels to drain for about 5 minutes before eating.
