Shaker Fried Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by SheCooksToConquer

This is so simple. A pan-fried chicken and gravy recipe that goes great with a simple salad and mashed potatoes (to sop up all the creamy gravy). I love Shaker cooking, I think I got this recipe about 40 years ago at the Hancock Shaker Village.

UPDATE: I've made this several times over the past year & it has became one of my all-time FAVORITE Chicken dishes!!! I use leg quaters & a little more butter & oil. The chicken is SOOOOOO moist & flavorful!!! THANKS, again, for posting this recipe!
