A wonderful and easy recipe based on one from the February/March 2007 issue of Cook's Country magazine. The contributor, Jeremy Sauer, says in its intro, "While other regions of the country rely on a thick buttermilk batter and a deep-fat fryer to deliver a crusty crunch, in Maryland the chicken parts are simply seasoned, floured, and shallow-fried. This old-fashioned cooking method results in crisp, mahogany chicken that, with a gentle tug, sheets off the bone with its deliciously brittle skin still intact. But what really sets Maryland fried chicken apart is the creamy, black pepper-spiked pan gravy that's equally fit for drumstick dunking or mopping up with a biscuit." Cook time doesn't include the 30 minutes (up to 2 hours) refrigerator time. NOTE: To ensure even-cooking, breasts should be halved crosswise and leg quarters separated into thighs and drumsticks.
