DIRECTIONS

  • In bowl, stir together flour, pepper, salt and thyme; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together water and egg; set aside. Place enough vegetable oil in a heavy frying pan to measure 1 inch. Heat to 350 degrees.
  • One at a time, dip chicken pieces into egg mixture, then into flour mixture. Carefully place in oil, do not crowd pieces; cook for 15 minutes. Turn with tongs and cook for 10 minutes more. For larger pieces, cook an additional 5 minutes. Place chicken on paper towel to drain. Discard 90 percent of oil in frying pan. Save remaining 10 percent of pan drippings for gravy.
  • For gravy, sprinkle flour into pan drippings. Cook on medium-high heat till light brown. Add milk, pepper and salt. With a wooden spoon, scrape up the browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Use whisk to stir until smooth.
  • Gravy will thicken as it cooks (add a little milk if too thick). Serve hot with fried chicken.
