  1. Mix flour, salt, and pepper. Coat chicken with flour mixture. Heat oil (1/4-inch in 12-inch skillet) over medium-high heat until hot. Cook chicken in oil until light brown on all sides for about 10 minutes; reduce heat. Cover tightly and simmer, turning once or twice, until thickest pieces are done, or about 35 minutes longer. (If skillet cannot be covered tightly, add 1-2 tablespoons of water). Remove cover during last 5 minutes of cooking to crisp chicken.
