DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the chicken and pat it dry.
  • Beat the eggs in a 9x13" dish.
  • Lay the chicken pieces in the dish, and sprinkle with salt, pepper & garlic powder.
  • Turn the chicken and season the other side, then slosh the chicken parts around in the egg until well coated.
  • Put enough oil in cast iron pot or electric skillet to come just halfway up the sides of the chicken parts.
  • Heat the oil until just smoking, about 375°F.
  • Put the flour in a paper bag, add the chicken pieces, a few at a time, and shake to coat well.
  • Remove the chicken with tongs and place it it in the hot oil.
  • Cover the pan, leaving a crack for steam to escape, lower the heat to 325F for electric skillet and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken with tongs, cover again (leaving the lid open a crack) and cook for 10 minutes longer.
  • Very large pieces may need to be cooked longer.
  • Drain the chicken on paper towels and transfer to platter.
  • To make the glaze, melt butter in a saucepan over low heat.
  • Whisk in the honey until well blended.
  • Bring to a simmer and add the pecans.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Ladle the glaze over the hot fried chicken and serve.
