DIRECTIONS

  • In the morning, combine 2 tablespoons of salt with 1 cup of water in a large bowl and stir to dissolve salt.
  • Add chicken to bowl and cover with water.
  • Place ice cubes over all and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Remove chicken from brine and pat dry completely.
  • Place oil in roasting pan large enough to add chicken in one layer.
  • Combine flour and seasonings in a plastic bag and add chicken pieces two at a time and shake until coated.
  • As you take them out of the bag, shake them to remove excess flour.
  • Lay chicken pieces in roasting pan, skin side down and oven fry until brown and crisp, about 40 minutes to an hour, turning once.
  • Using a spatula, remove chicken pieces from pan onto paper towels to drain.
