Excellent spicy chicken! I cooked it in a deep fryer, which only took a few minutes per piece.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix first 3 ingredients in a paper bag.
  2. Season Chicken parts with Seasoning Salt and Pepper Place chicken one by one in bag and shake to cover chicken piece completely Place coated chicken on a rack above a baking pan to catch excess flour This is important!
  3. Leave chicken on the counter for 1 hour, sprinkling left over flour to coat as chicken"sweats" thru coating.
  4. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet to fit chicken and to a depth of 1/2 inch Place chicken pieces in oil skin side down- do not cover!
  5. 8 Minutes per side (or there abouts) until golden.
  6. Drain on brown paper bags Great served hot, with cream gravy, mashed potatoes and biscuits- or cold for a picnic.
